Got a shoot coming up and I could sure use some advice. The short takes place in a house that is up for sale, so it's devoid of any furniture. Moving blankets on C-stands going to be of any use? I'll be using a Schoeps CMC6/MK41 Hyper.
Also, some scenes are free of dialogue, just a lot of movement and rummaging through boxes. Would you recommend the same mic for the PFX?
Moving blankets in C stands will certainly help. Also take special note to the corners of the rooms on the ceiling. I used to put a bunch of old towels and sheets in a sack or material bag and gaffa tape or hook them onto the corners - doing that for all corners can make a big difference in dampening reverb (I am assuming that's what you are trying to achieve).
I use the same mic for location dialogue and action sound but perhaps in a studio you have the luxury of choosing mics with particular qualities over others rather than on location. Just (as I'm sure you do) be sure to get a good clear signal for whatever you are focusing on - dialogue or action.
Can I ask what is PFX? I have not come across that before and a google search gave no results.
