After working on The Morning After for 4 years including audio for a year and a half and Director for the past year and a half, I am back... working on a new title called The Morning After, doing audio once again. On top of that, most of this film was shot about 5 minutes from where I was a part of about 240 episodes of the Q30 show, The Morning After. Although the stories were completely different.
One day was just flat out tough for everyone in so many ways. I'll certainly speak for myself and say it was tough for me to stay out of the shot and get good audio from the shotgun. Night scene outdoors with extremely reflective convertible and giant lights from above and all around. Not to mention almost every shot was wide, and some on a slider. The lavs didn't always work perfectly so I kept trying to ride that frame line as much as I could but it seemed like every shot either my reflection was in the shot somewhere, my shadow was in the shot from 1 light, or my boom shadow was in the shot from another light or my foot was in the shot. Needless to say it got extremely frustrating and discouraging but a positive attitude form then on out helped me rock 'n roll and get plenty of sound bites I'm very proud of, giving the editor good options for each shot.
Also, here's an article on the film.
