Talking Head Audio Configuration

Go to solution

Hello all. I've used a Blue Yeti for screencasts in the past but now I need to make some talking head videos and I'm wondering about the best audio configuration. I intend to use my iPhone as the camera which will be positioned a few feet in front of me. Should I go for a clip-on mic with a cable connection to the phone? Or do wireless mics work well so that I don't have to consider the cable? Or is there some other confirguration / device I'm not considering? I also want to minimize editing time as I'm not particaurly skilled in that so I'd prefer not to have to sync audio to video manually. I don't have a huge budget so I'm looking for mid-range options at best. Thanks, Gary

You can easily find a lav mic that will plug in to your phone directly. I don't think you need a wireless mic at this stage if you're going to be close to the phone. Just remember you're plugged in when you get up and start walking after you record Smiley Very Happy Look for microphone recommendations in this thread: https://community.udemy.com/t5/A-V-Solutions/What-microphone-do-you-use/m-p/2056.

Lav mic are rather cheap and efficient for what you are going to do, learn about their limitations and practice a little before recording for real. If you're on iPhone, I'd recommend getting the Filmic Pro app, it gives you good flexibility to record audio and video.
