Often filmmakers are told that if you are doing video production or YouTube videos, you need to use a shotgun microphone for filmmaking, YouTube video, or corporate video. But what if that is actually bad advice and will cause reverb and phasing. What if you as a filmmaker/videographer could pick a better microphone for your next video shoot and you wouldn’t have to worry about getting rid of reverb in post. In this video Andrew breaks down picking the perfect microphone based on the size of the room you are recording your film in. Watch the full video for tips to improve your video’s audio.

We examine hypercardioid microphones, cardioids, omni directional microphones and shotgun microphones with both a long and short interference tube. We show you how each one of these microphones sound in a bathroom and fake living room so you as a filmmaker can figure out how how picking the perfection microphone is critical to getting perfect audio on your next film project.
