I actually think the background of an experienced editor would be less likely to ‘screw up’ camera positioning as they know in their head what works in the edit.

I’d suggest a Director who knows...

Not at all. Many first-time (and not just first-time!) Directors aren't as adept at the 'technical storytelling' and lean heavily on their Cinematographer for that kind of stuff.

There's also a free version of Media Composer, but as with Resolve and Lightworks - might be a bit complicated (depending on technical skill).

Not being a professional location sound guy myself, I would imagine that an unbalanced 3.5mm cable would introduce more noise in general, and XLR will always allow for longer cable runs - and the...

With a well choreographed scene, there's no real reason you couldn't get this or something very close to it practically/in-camera. Of course, you could also go down the post route.

It's more about having an understanding of whose scene it is. Who has the power and what do they want from the scene? Without a 'pov' there's no dramatic tension, and you've lost your audience.
