Don’t worry…You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on a microphone for your movie. Try this trick to record audio instead.
Record the audio with a second smartphone! Hide it near the subject (mic-side-up) and turn on the Voice Memo when you are ready to record. You can import the audio into your movie later with an editing app. It will save you a lot of frustration.
What if you want to add a voice over to your movie? No problem. Apps like iMovie allow you to record a voice over during the editing process. We’ll cover that in the next section.
