I'm pretty impressed everytime I watch Man vs. Wild because of the quality of the location audio. I'm wondering if anyone knows what kind of gear they use? Ideas?
Considering the exotic-ness of the locations it would be difficult to always have a wireless mic on Bear...plus there are many places where he is shirtless and there is no visible wire still (if there is a lav at all). But if it is only shotgun mics, how do you get such crisp audio from more than 30 feet away in a wide shot? Plus, the fact that insects in the environment aren't drowning out the dialog...
What do you all think?
