FIFA 19 is a football simulation video game developed by EA Vancouver as part of Electronic Arts' FIFA series. Staring A-League players Jaushua Sotirio (Western Sydney Wanders) and Paulo Ratre (Sydney FC), this video was produced by Fox Sports to promote the release of the game.
As sound recordist on the project I had the challenge of recording dialogue and action on a set that was filmed from all angles at all times. This meant the use of booms was out. Thus, radio mics were placed on both the players and the host in order to capture their dialogue and get a mic as close to the action as possible without being seen. Use of body worn straps and miniaturised transmitter packs allowed the players to be able to play while still being recorded.
