Being a Location Sound Mixer in the Charleston South Carolina and Savannah Georgia area means I do many different types and kind of shoots. News magazines is one of them especially high profile ones such as what is pictured above. The interview above is a standard 2 on 1 interview meanings two talent talking to one reporter a very common set up.
My equipment choices for this interview was a my trusty Sound Devices 833 Mixer/ recorder, Lectrosonics SMWB wireless with Cos-11 lav mics on the talent and a Schoeps CMC1 over the reporter. My preference would have been to put Schoeps microphones over all of them however the framing/ lighting made this not feasible. If you want to see the complete interview view it here
Like most of these large network interviews we had 3-4 hours to set up light and check in with New York who was watching via a Zoom chat room to maintain social distancing and limit people on set. The interview went off well and everyone was happy with the results.
