Press Play Video Coach - HK 4 OB: Sounds to watch out for

This next clip in our Hong Kong series shows you what to look out for from 'background sounds' when filming outside...

Some sounds can't be helped, but you can help yourself by staying away from very noisy spots when possible.

Listen out for the hidden music speaker, surrounding conversations, traffic noise etc.

Most good HD video cameras and editing software will have noise reduction software, but to ensure a good quality sound when recording without a lapel microphone - as we were in this series - always find the quietest spot available before you shoot.

A sound check pre-record gives you a great indication and if sudden noises cut in - keep going or simply mention it...

If your message is strong and clear enough your audience can forgive "noises off" beyond your control!
