The shooter’s goal of achieving clean, noise-free recordings begins with opti-
mal microphone placement. Locating the mic too far from a subject or posi-
tioning it significantly off-axis will elevate the background noise and yield
unusable sound. Shooters should know that mic placement is too critical to
leave to an untrained person or reluctant friend pressed into service to “hold
the boom.” Not recognizing the value of proper microphone placement will
quickly sink the viability of any production, or at the least, lead to some very
expensive and time-consuming dialog replacement sessions down the road.
