Honestly, I have no idea which directions the windows are…
You want to be sure that any windows behind the area you are shooting in are covered somehow. Shooting into light (windows letting light through included) tends to cause bad video.
As for audio, I have wireless lav mics for the speakers and wireless handheld mics for audience participation. All the mics are going into a mixer that will be plugged into a Mac for recording on the computer…is this a horrible idea? (I’ll also be exporting the sound into a Sony MiniDisc recorder as a backup.) I have the option of setting up the frequencies on my wireless lav mics. Can anyone give me any clue as to what frequency I should be on?
If you can, run the sound into your camera as well, and (if possible via an aux send), record a separate track of all mics open at union, in case the person working the board misses a cue or something unexpected happens.
