How do I remove static sound from a video recording?
I hired a videographer for my wedding. My husband and I met with the guy yesterday to preview our video. Everything was great, except for the vows part. The sound was very static, so you could barely hear us talking. The priest and my hubby wore microphones, and the videographer said the two mics caused some interference. Needless to say, it sounds horrible, and I'm upset about it.He suggested re-recording that small part of the ceremony. I am very sentimental and don't want to reinact that moment, so I asked for another suggestion. He mentioned trying to separate the sounds in the audio so you can only hear our voices. Problem is he is not a sound guy, so he can't do that himself. I figured I'd check here to see if I can help him research this, since he's willing to do whatever to fix our video. Is it possible to separate sounds like that on an audio recording? If so, who does this? Is it costly? I'm in the Detroit area, any references are appreciated. Thanks!

- Ouch! It is always best to test things like acoustics during rehearsal! Can it be repaired? Possibly. To your satisfaction? Hard to say without knowing how the audio was recorded to the master. Were the audio channels separated? Was the audio recorded line level or mike level? There are so many variables here. I'm assuming you're asking if anyone outside of your videographer might be able to help and the answer is yes. You probably have someone in your area who you can take it to, just check the yellow pages for sound or video production studios. If you can't find anybody nearby companies like my own (see link below) could do it via the mail. The cost would depend on the length of the segment and the time involved in restoration.
