My friend, Dr. Robert Lamb, posted this great shot of the Delius cabin. Rescued years later, this cabin had been built at Solano grove and is where Delius lived when he was in Florida. I hope to visit one day. Thank you, Robert Earl Lamb!
The cabin withstood Hurricane Matthew beautifully, and all people and dogs are safe. Mullet Hill Grove itself, however, did suffer damage: About 25 palm trees were downed, dozen of fruit trees were upturned, and a lot of fruit was blown off the trees. Still, the majority of the grove survived. My father has already cleaned up many of the downed palms, and we'll be tackling the barn this weekend. Mullet Hill Grove will go on.
Last month a fellow filmmaker, whom I've never met, messaged me on FB, asking for some advice about using inexpensive microphones for capturing dialogue in film.... I think he probably saw a post I did on my TUES. Night page about selecting microphones for that project. Of course, I've never actually made a dramatic film with dialogue, so I'm no expert, but I shared what I knew. Well, a few days later this same filmmaker messaged me again with a follow-up question and I didn't have the chance to respond right away, and when I did have time, I could find no trace of his text.
So, in hopes that he may see this, I will respond now. First, about using the Behringer C2's for film dialogue, here's a link that will explain better than I can: http://soundforfilm.squarespace.com/blog/
You will also, if you look, see a bunch of varieties of a pencil microphone, all of which are fairly inexpensive, and some of which have hypercardiod versions. Typically, hypercardiod microphones are used to capture indoor dialogue, though I think a good cardiod should not be overlooked. Anyway, a few microphones you might consider:
Samson C02 (supercardiod) $109 (pair)
Golden Age Project FC-4 (hyper +2 other capsules) $110
Avantone Pro CK-1 (hyper + 2 other capsules) $149
Of these, I've only heard of the Samson's being used for film dialogue, but that doesn't mean the other microphones might not be good for that purpose as well.
I still think the Behringer C2 is your best low-price option (and lowest in cost), but you can check out a video review of the Samson C02, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDy75_ciuf8
Anyway, I'm sorry I didn't respond to you second message, dear fellow filmmaker, but I hope you come across this information and that it is helpful to you.
All good wishes,
