I'm a very experienced filmmaker (and have done freelance location sound myself). I'm fully and painfully aware of this.
My post was seeing if anyone had been forced to deal with this issue and any creative solutions when one is forced to deal with location noise (e.g. shooting with an IMAX camera) or unavoidable location noise.
I'm sure production newbies and people seeking Sound 101 post here all the time - I'm not one of them.
However, to match the tone of the responses here is the replies thus far have contained no actual thought, asked no insightful questions and utterly devoid of useful information.
I respectfully suggest that the above being the case, you should know that there isn't any fast, magic fix, indeed on most professional films they would simply either dismiss the location or, ADR afterwards. Being that probably 70% of all the dialog we all see at the cinema will have been ADR'd, I wouldn't be so reluctant, it's another chance to show off your skill.
