For production sound mixer Danny Michael, who recently completed work for The Interpreter — due out this month — filming at the United Nations was quite an undertaking. “We filmed in the General Assembly and were even allowed into The Security Council for half a day. We had to work quickly and didn't have much of a margin for error, so everything had to work flawlessly.”

Michael used a combination of Sanken microphones for the project, including the CS-3e short shotgun, which he first encountered while working on The Stepford Wives. “The beauty of the mic is that it rejects the low-frequency rumble of the surroundings, while maintaining a pleasing tonal quality when recording the human voice.” Other Sanken mics employed included the COS-11s lavalier and the CUB-01 boundary mic.
