Using internal mic on camera: possible?
I'm new at this, and to be fair, it's only a little school project. That being said, I'd still like it (a short film) to look and sound as nice as I can. I have access to a Sony HD handycam pj430v, which isn't the best camera but it isn't the worst either. I don't have access to nice external mics.
I know it isn't preferable to rely on the internal mic, but is it possible? The short film is entirely inside, with very few times the camera won't be decently close to the actors. Is there anything I can do in editing to make it sound better? It doesn't have to be perfect, I just want it to be the least amateurish as it can be.
Thanks for the help.
