We shot all around New York City with the Rode Video Micro attached to the RED and the Rode NTG-3 handheld or on a boom. The Micro was great for reference sound and was even used for some location ambiance. The NTG-3 was our go-to for the indoor dialogue as well as location sound and a bit of foley.

We went to Coney Island, Times Square and the Staten Island Ferry for most of the shots. We got something like 6 hours of footage that we somehow managed to squeeze into a 3 minute short. Definitely a challenge! But we had a lot of fun.
