It is a challenge for many Boston video production sets to make sure the audio is set to the right levels and that the back ground noise isn’t picked up. This is a difficult thing for many technical production crews and producers to eliminate because let’s face it, unwanted noise can happen in even the smallest amounts. There are a few ways to help eliminate this undesirable noise while filming on a production set and as a Boston video company, Skillman Video Group is here to help with some tips.
Mount the Microphone
Figuring out the best way to configure a microphone to eliminate the background noise on a production shoot isn’t simple. One way to get rid of the vibration sound is to mount a microphone on a stand. By holding a microphone in ones hand, there is a possibility of picking up movement from the fingertips during a recording.
Certain sounds are known to release a burst of air while being recorded during a video production. This can be extremely difficult to remove in post-production, but while on set there is a way to eliminate any excess noise. By using a pop shield that covers the microphone, unwanted sound can diminish. The pop shield is just a circular frame with a fine sheer material stretched across it, which eliminates the excess popping noise.

Room tone or room environment can be a huge contributor to and source of background noise. Recording environment needs to be quiet meaning any fans, electronics, and people are silent during production. Sometimes a video marketing company can be hired for a project that does not require sound to be recorded; in these cases the audio levels do not need to be monitored and the producer can focus on the shots needed. On the video production sites where sounds does matter, the producer and director have to pay close attention to the sound that is being emitted on set. Many editing programs have ways to manipulate the external noise in a room but it all comes down to what the raw footage captured.
Audio is a difficult part of production because sometimes a set cannot control every aspect of the sound. It is the job of the producer and the director to problem solve and work to the best of their ability to obtain the shots and audio desired for a client. Through the use of these specific tips along with many other sources, audio can be controlled and mastered in most situations. The key is to come prepared and have all the equipment at the set just incase it is needed as part of the video production services.
