I wonder if Richard didn't mean "allowing it to slide on the film"? At any rate his hearing must be better than mine, I cannot hear micro-scratches. Taping a microphone to the film seems a bit extreme. Even without that, Richard Binder's method works really well, I give up on trying to find shortcuts.
