3 Ways to Record Audio for Interviews




In this week's episode of Move with Rhino, we wanted to show you guys the different audio recording methods you can use when shooting an interview. Audio is one of the most underrated tools when it comes to film-making. You can have the best video shot on the most expensive camera, but without proper audio, it will ruin the entire project. We will break down our most favorite method and also shed some light on our least favorite.  Check out the video below to see which microphones we recommend!







Behind The Scenes

Thanks for watching the latest episode to our series “Move with Rhino”. We want to help other filmmakers gain inspiration or give them tips on different types of shots. Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for weekly uploads and updates. Now let’s go film.


Which one do we recommend?

We love RODE microphonesThey are not paying us to promote them, we just really like their products and they help us on each shoot. What is great about their products is that they are reliable and you can be confident that the audio will sound crisp each time. Below, are the RODE products we use here at Rhino.

1. Rode NTG3 + Zoom H5

By far, this boom microphone setup will get you the best sounding audio for your interview. It can be difficult to bring if your constantly switching locations. But if you are shooting inside at one spot, this will get you that crisp clear audio.


2. RodeLink Wireless Filmmaker Kit

This lavalier microphone setup is great if your constantly moving around. Another thing that is great about the wireless lav kit is that it plugs straight into your camera so you do not have to worry about syncing audio in post.



3. Rode VideoMic Pro

This is our least favorite for interviews (well actually, the on camera is the worst) but it is great if you are doing vlog or handheld style interviews. Your subject needs to be closer for better audio clarity. 


In conclusion, its good to keep in mind how important audio is for your film/video. Proper audio will make your video stand out from the rest and make your viewer feel more engaged in your content. We hope this article was helpful and we will see you in the next episode!
