    SEMESTER FINAL EDITING ASSIGNMENT

    Hello I a film student at UNiversity and have never done editing before in my life until I was required to attend the AVID class in order for me to be able to get my degree. My final and most important editing assignment is due this week but after I shot the assignment which was a scene similar to James Lipton's show " Inside the Actors Studio" We were only allowed to have 4 crew members on set due to covid regulations, so when i went to edit the project I saw that the audio department forgot to shut off the camera mic that was running at the same time as the  lev mic. however there is no recording of the lev mic that the 2 actors were miced with cause they forgot to put an SD card inside the zoom recorder, now I only hear squeaking as audio, and it is almost impossible to hear the interview, other than adjusting the volume, is there anything else that could be done in editing to reduce the background noise, the squeaking and bring it to a somewhat acceptable audio condition? Thank you infinetely for your huge help and cooperation, any advice would help.

    SIncerely

    Oh, man, that's a nightmare. The squeaking you hear, is that on the camera mic? Whatever the case, this is a problem for an audio specialist. I'm afraid the tools available in MC First are not going to be that helpful. You need something like ProTools and someone with a lot of experience to operate it.

    Can you reshoot it?

    The squeak is probably the headphones leaking back to the camera mic as feedback.

    In my opinion the audio is likely unsalvagable. 

    You could get the speakers to ADR their lines again but it's then a task to sync it to the pictures. 

    I'd re shoot.

    And if you have to reshoot feed the mics back to the camera for an easier life.

    Audio is a lot harder to "fix" than a video. You can always Rotroscope or mask something out in video, but it's impossible to do something like that in audio. 

     

    I don't think there's much you could do other than re-shooting?
