If you're not recording video- make sure someone says the shot / take # clearly into the mic, so you can link it up to the shot of the slate in the video. Otherwise you'll be lost.

Evildonut: I know how to get good sound. It's just recording it I need to work on. I know I need a Mic. but my camera has no Mic. Input so I need a separete way to record the audio.

Depends on the device you use to record with - but it is always nice to have an actual usb audio interface to handle inputs. You can find models at any guitar center.

That's where you lost me. Do you mean record it straight to my computer? A lot of people on another forum suggested that to me but my computer is a desktop so I wouldn't be able to carry it around. Atleast not easily And I want to make it look as nice as I can. I don't want it to look like something I thought up in 12 minutes. I'm actually taking the time to write the script and edit it, storyboard (which I hate doing by the way), cast people other than my friends, and I'm spending money on it (normally I just use what I can get ahold of) I want it to reflect the effort that was put into it.

If it's just a fun student or short film, just plug it into the audio input and record. Depends on how pro you're making it.

Where would I go to rent sound people?That depends on a few things - mostly your location and your budget.

I don't need a mic input for that stuff do I? Because my camera only has a hotshoe and a A/V port. I'd really like to avoid renting sound if I can.
Yes, you can have a DV shotgun microphone resting on your camera if it has a hot shoe. Notice I say a DV microphone, not a shotgun with a XLR output. If you end up with a shotgun microphone with an XLR output, your gonna have XLR - 3.5 mm jack converter.

I'm down with that. Any recorders you'd recommend? Preferrably not to expensive?
