How to make a five minutes movie at low budget?
Decided to create a unique five-minute short movie on a low budget with just your smartphone? Get expert tips on how to do so without stretching your budget.
I am planning to make a five minutes awareness movie at a low budget of 2K. I don't have a digital cam recorder but would rather use my Redmi camera to shoot using Open Camera for high best quality.
The only problem is how to record clear sounds. I have a laver microphone, but I cannot afford another one since the artist or character all will need sperate ones. The cost of lavalier microphones is too expensive at Amazon. However, I wanted to know is there any kind of single device to record group discussions' audio clearly avoiding background noises completely because I am not wanting to do dubbing of the sound. Whatever recorded will be final and even the best video editor won't be able to edit clear sounds if there are too much of background disturbances.
The movie will be shot in a prison using prison green screen VFX. There will be four characters. One interrogating the culprit and other two officers will be standing five foot away. Is it possible to use a single mic hanged down on the ceiling to record clearly avoiding background noises of all the characters voices without using four separate lava lier microphones.
I wanted to know this because, I have to buy the microphone and make a final decision once I get suggestions from expert.
Please experts, help me.
