audio

"Audio in a documentary is a key piece of footage."

DSLR built-in mics are not meant for audio production. Keep the mic on for reference audio. Turn off the Auto Gain Control.

Shotgun mic on camera serves as good reference.

External mic: lavalier v. boom v. handheld

Alternative to External mic setup: iPhone + Pro Audio To Go + Cable adapter (with headphone jack and an XLR jack)

File formats: AIFF or WAV (not a compressed format like MP3)

cinematography

Camera Angle. "The camera is the viewer's eyes."

Continuity/Cutting

Close-ups

Composition. "The subject is moving, or the camera is moving. You will compose at the beginning of the movement, and at the end of it."
