Re: The Royal Wedding

Hmm typical British OBV's.. Huge production areas in them.. Never really understood that fascination, we usually have production seperatly so the director doesn't get disturbed.

Where I work we use Studer as audio consoles btw :)

I wonder if the learning that can be drawn from this broadcast can put into context the endless "arguments" in this and other forums about shoving recorders into the groom's pockets and the merits/de-merits of guns v lavaliers mic etc etc?

Of course I realise that our clients' weddings aren't on the same scale but the example (and, as Tom writes, the "endorsement" that broadcasters use the same solutions as we do) should stand as just that in many respects not just audio.

Equally, few if any of us will be able to afford to equip to the standard or complexity of the broadcasters nor will the alternatives be without merit in particular circumstances eg we still prefer boundary layer mics for the breakfast speeches, but as a guide to principles it should be a great help for the newcomer.

Incidentally, may I correct an earlier post; I was misinformed about the official photographer. I'd read it was Mario Testino but I now learn it was Hugo Burnand. My apologies for the misinformation.
