Article Comment – Placing Lav Mics on Talent Can Be Super Awkward: Here's How the Pros Do It8 years ago
I did not even watch the video and can tell you that the best way to mic non-professional talent is to use a boom mic. I shoot tons of interviews with non-pro talent and can tell you that when I edit I use the boom mic 95% of the time. I think the interviewee is way more relaxed if they can simply walk in, sit down, and not have someone get in their personal space. Your results may vary...
