    Sound was a major problem for my self tapes. The audio level was low, sounded distant, and was echo-y using the on-board mic integrated with my camera. I tried a lavalier mic, which helped, but the better solution was to get a shotgun mic mounted on a boom mic stand. The mic has an XLR connection that plugs into an audio interface which plugs directly into my camera. The audio now has presence and good volume. I should also mention that it helps if there are curtains or upholstered furniture in the room to absorb some of the sound bouncing off hard surfaces.
    All that said, I completely agree with your main point that the acting is the key ingredient.
