Blair Witch Project - Their Voices Are Switched!
Go to the part of the movie (the beginning), when they are crossing the stream on a log. If you listen while Heather is filming Mike crossing the log, you notice the sound is normal, with Mike's voice in the distance, as he is on the log, and Heather's voice is fairly loud, as she is using the camera. In the next scene, you notice that either Mike or Josh is filming, but their voice still sounds far off. Heather is now crossing the log, and her voice still sounds close up. If this were right, wouldn't Heather's voice be in the distance, as she is on the log where Mike was, and Mike or Josh's voice be loud, because they are now using the camera as Heather was before?

The reason for this is because they were recording the audio on DAT (digital audio tape). mike was carrying the date recorder. thats why his voice sounded closer even though he was in the distance on film. so technically this isn't a slip up.

I haven't seen the movie in a long time, but I believe they had a Nagra for recording audio. I don't know who has it in the scene, but from the decription I assume it would be Heather. The film camera they would be using would not likely record audio, though it might. If they were shooting with a video (I don't recall if they were or not.) it WOULD record audio. So there would be multiple audio sources and the editor would have made the choice of which source to use. The editor could have just as easily chosen to, use the on camera audio (if it exhists) when it cuts to that camera but as is pointed out, they didn't. They stayed, throught the scene, with a single audio source which was far away from the guy on camera.
