So, I was working on a new project, and I discovered to my horror afterwards that my fancy boom microphone had failed on a recent shoot! OMG, I was devastated, on the verge of tears. There was no audio of four hours of footage!
Then, I talked to my client and a friend who helps me on my projects, and I realized, “Hey, I can do this with a voice over.” My client said they’ve never had anyone shoot this event before, and listening to people talk can be pretty boring anyway.
So I’m going to work up a script and cut it shorter than I originally intended. And now I found out that my client is approaching a couple local radio personalities who were at the event to lend a hand with the voice over!
And so suddenly, there’s lemonade!
(And, no, Beyonce, we weren’t talking about you ….) LOL
It’s all about learning from your mistakes. So next time, I will be sure to check the battery in my boom mic, and check the indicator light on the top to make sure that it’s working properly. Lesson learned. On to the next one!
