7 Ways to Hide a Lav Mic

For Corporate videos, talking heads, testimonials, etc. a correctly placed mic (even if it’s visible) separates amateurs from professional video productions. On TV the audience never sees a mic. Why? The production must sustain the illusion that the audience is watching the characters live out their lives.

A visible mic would destroy that illusion in the same way that an accidental wide shot would show that the characters are actually on a set and not in their kitchen. The challenge lies in hiding the mic from the camera’s prying eyes.

In this article, we’ll explore how to capture audio with a mic cleverly placed on the human body, just outside the camera’s view. You’ll learn how to use a special mic that is great for hiding because it is super small.
