    Hello,

    And thanks for reading this, this is the first time I post on this forum although am an avid reader.
    I will be recording location sound for a feature film to be shot on July this year. I have very little equipment of my own and I suspect the production budget is small so it is very unlikely that we will rent the equipment I would like to work with. The equipment I own is as follows:

    1 Rode NTG2 shotgun mic
    1 zeppelin + deadcat
    1 R44 Roland filed recorder

    I will push to have lavalier mics (at least two). Could you think of another piece of equipment that I absolutely need to have or that would be very beneficial for the shooting?

    Many thanks

    Juan

    Well, a boom pole, cables, headphones, a copy of this https://www.tyford.com/Ty_Ford_Audio_Bootcamp_Field_Guide.html

    TBH, it’s not so much what kit you have as how well you use it.
