How to Tackle Audio and Video When Shooting in Loud Environments

By Anthony Thurston on August 2nd 2013

It is no secret that audio is just as important as video, maybe even more so, in your film projects. But how do you go about shooting audio, and video for that matter, in a location with loud ambient noise like a highway or waterfall?

Fellow Oregonian and filmmaker Luke Neumann of NeumannFilms put together this great video on shooting in loud situations, in the case of his video he made use of one of Oregon’s many Waterfalls. Check out the video below for a great start to finish demonstration on how to accomplish a shoot like this with a minimal crew of 2 people.

In case you were curious about those LED lights that Luke used in the video you can pick them up on the cheap via Amazon. I believe they are going for around $35, and you won’t find a better deal on LED panels and the quality is more than worth the $35.

    thank you, it’s a great help to see you physically set up your equipment for video and audio. I am a still photographer with a slowly increasing need to get into video, so seeing you work instead of reading about it is preferred.
