Best Mic For Film Audio : Independent Film mic review.

Struggling to find an affordable boom operator for your independent films? No need, as we let you in on a little secret about film audio and what we feel the best mic is when you’re strapped for cash.

Sometimes, the best microphone for audio is something millions of us have as a necessity and don’t even realise it’s actually pretty incredible for movie audio. One quick microphone test and you’ll be surprised that there isn’t one mic review related to this badboy… Well, at least for film audio!
