That is the question. So, here's the hypothetical scenario. Not all actors need to be mic'd. Some do. Director is apathetic toward micing. Would you mic all actors (enough mic's not a problem, enough board space, knowledgeable board tech, etc.) even if you didn't have to? Say one or two really need it, but many could get by without it, even if the rear seats are a little quiet, but not terribly quiet? So, the question. Do you mic even if you don't have to? Or do you let the actors fend for themselves, vocally. Note: I'm thinking about a future show that hasn't even been cast yet, nor have I even gotten the script yet. Just thinking about wireless micing principles in general.
