How to record better audio when shooting b-roll for a cinematic video. Tips and tricks for post-production effects and sound design in this tutorial.

When we received the microphones from Deity at our office the timing couldn’t be more perfect. I was just going to leave to Seoul South-Korea to shoot a short documentary series about E-sports. To be more specific the Heartstone Master Tour. This gave me the perfect opportunity to test out this microphone for 10 days straight in a real life scenario.

With me I choose to take the Deity V-Mic D3 Pro.  I used this microphone for different kinds of recordings. Form B-roll to interviews to voice-overs.

While shooting I never had time enough so everything needed to be fast. Luckly this microphone had a dial on the back which was LIFE SAVING! Whenever I was doing my interviews I just needed to turn the dial and that was it. I didn’t need to waste any time in the menus.

Something you would easly take for granted but is very handy is the long battery life. It has an internal battery so you don’t need to bring extra batterys with you. Next to this it has a long battery life, I didn’t even charged the microphone once in the whole trip! Other benefits are that it’s small enough to put easly in your backpack and that it turns itself on automatically when you turn on the camera.

I honestly enjoyed this microphone on my trip and can definetly recommend this. I’ll also leave the video right here if you would like to check it out.

We are excited to share with you the first of three episodes documenting our journey in Seoul, South Korea, during the Hearthstone Masters Tour. 🇰🇷#loveduo #orange #S1WIN #S1KoreaLearn more about Orange: s1.gg/orange
