I used Instamic for different shots in this video project for an important client as Michelin, especially in drones sequences.
I love how it completely immerse the viewers into the action, really makes you feel like you're riding the bike yourself.
I really am dedicating myself more into piloting drones and I'll soon get a new big drone, but my instamic is definitely staying in my kit and will sit perfectly by my side.
I used the instamic for other shots, especially for the buggy and the dirtbike. I shot this piece by myself and sometimes it's hard to organise everything and be efficient, so I just attached the mic on the buggy or the bike and asked Yannick to go around for like 5 minutes to record audio by itself while I was preparing the drone, looking for a new angle or just moving all my stuff.
Then in postproduction, I have around 5 minutes of audio for each discipline and I can play around and add audio where I need to. Just happy with what I got to produce with it, but can't wait to come up with a new concept that would really showcase its possibilities."
Instamic really has a big production value, especially for a one-man band like me.
Here's an sample of a drone footage with the sound coming from the ground. I have attached Instamic with the tape clip, windshield on and fastened with some gaffa tape to secure it during Yannick's crazy evolutions.
Full Length Michelin video. Instamic mounted on the buggies, bikes, etc.
Full Length Video. From 03:15 the drone sequence was entirely captured with Instamic.
Once I listened to the results, I was enthusiastic about the full and high-quality sound I got from Instamic! I would surely recommend it to any sound recordist who is looking for an easy way to get a great sound in a matter of seconds. I just bought a second one!!"
