To get away from the sunny Midlands from time to time is great, especially recording location sound with Independent film maker Chris Bradley (Willomann Productions). On this occasion we were filming for CLPE capturing fascinating poet interviews, to be included in resources for children and teachers, with tips and reflections on poets' own writing and creative practice.
The acoustic of the location was a little live, but not problematic with the use of two different microphones and some careful placement. However, the fact we were in central London under a very busy flight path meant we had to be very patient!
Equipment used: Sound Devices 744T, DPA 4060, Sennheiser MKH416.
