We used the rode video micro to film this video, I have used this microphone to record music, skateboarding and short films and it has always delivered crisp audio aswell as always being reliable.
we had limited resources so had to do all the shots our selves. This included doing a dolly zoom by hand and imprevising with a tripod to get smooth transitions. we filmed the short film in 2 local parks and down a path that had alot of different textures (seen at 0:30 of the short film)
to get better audio for the film we had the microphone on the floor next to the step and the camera above on a tripod, this was achieved with a 3d printed bracket that i designed and printed.
