Day 2 of Filming!
We didn’t do much today. Just a bit of atmos and foley. Some pieces to camera. Some cutaways.
Highlights of the day included stepping in poop and seeing a sheep pee.
I was stupid and I didn’t pay enough attention to where I plugged the XLR cable into, so for the first half, I was recording in line instead of mic. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. Lucky we figured it out. But I do think that the files recorded in line are still useable. We had a listen and they’re just a little softer, but that is probably okay because we only need them as background noises.
The techs also didn’t give us that little extension for the headphones. Fortunately Nam is a former media teacher and he had one to spare. Probably would’ve had to rely on the levels if not for that.
IT WAS SO EXCITING. I RECORDED CROAKING FROGS.
And so begins the editing. I’m a bit nervous about getting use to Adobe Premier.
