Wow - I may have to start calling you Father Christmas now, renec.... ;D
My biggest problem is usually medium to large sized rooms:
* speeching (party- or funeral-... had both this week
) in a loungebar-style place, prolly something like 12m by 8m... about 8 to 12 listeners (budget cuts - skimping on extras, so not a lot of folks turn up for their parties these days
). Both sitting down and standing up....
* had a smallish courtroom recently, about 15 people.... problem was, it was actually pretty dry for its size, funnily enough....
* the worst: weddings at the town hall: medium room with carpets and wood panelling, mayor speeching; anything between 5 and 15 peeps sitting in and listening, pretty close to camera. Nightmare with the null atmos I have available. Managed to save the day with a bit of leather and wood sound (supposedly from the chairs they were sitting on).
Exteriors: bystanders at accidents, crime scenes etc. Fine when the extras are a bit lively, so you can get away with a voice or two, but when they're just standing there and watching, on close cam.... argh.
The above is just to give you an idea.
To sum it up: for me personally, the biggest prob smallish groups, in medium size locations, and as JSt0rm said, in different perspectives.
But hey, I'll be happy with anything I can get, so please go with the majority - larger groups will probably be in great demand for others, as will large rooms and halls.
And I'm an easy adapter.
Thanks, Father Xmas!
