  1. Shooting a doc up in Alert Bay, British Columbia. It's supposed to be summer up here but we've got high wind and rain!
  2. Appreciate the responses. Funnily enough I daycalled on a show yesterday and the mixer had a pair of the 550s - I took a good look and the size didn't bother me at all.
  3. Ah cool. Yea I've found the 7506s to be 'harsh' at times aswell. Seems like there's a little trade off with size/weight but that may be well worth it for the ears.
  4. I've been thinking about switching up to a new set of cans. Im using the 7506s for bag and assist/utility work, but have been interested in the ultrasone 680s or beyer dt250s after reading people's experiences of less fatigue on the ears after a days work. Was curious if you had any insight on how bulky the ultrasones may be compared to the 7506s. I've seen a few on different mixers carts but I'm curious if anyone's putting them to use for bag work. Going to try and track some down locally, but any insight would be appreciated in the meantime!
  5. Hey Cian, look into applying as a permitee for our unions IATSE 891 and ACFC West. Feel free to message me when you arrive if you'd like to grab a coffee. Cheers.
  6. I think it's common practice to do so, if that's what best suits wardrobe. Often I'll check with talent to see if they have any preferences of what tape is applied to the skin as a courtesy. As far as chests with a bit of hair go, I've still had success going to the skin... For REALLY hairy chests I've been meaning to add a chest strap to my kit as a 'hail mary' if nothing else works, or carry some under shirts along to go between layers. I worked on a show last summer where one of the actors had alot alot of hair, so our make up dept would prep an area on his chest with a gel of some sort (I cant remember exactly) that we could apply the wire too. Yay teamwork! I like to take it case by case and try to gauge what they're comfortable with.
  7. This is great! Was trying to find out how to make customizable shortcuts on the 744 then stumbled upon this. Perfect.
  8. I got a pack of hush lavs a while back but I never find myself grabbing them out of the wiring kit. Perhaps because of their size. I've preferred using an overcover for the same effect. Ive been meaning to try a hush lav on the TX antenna for separation from the skin though!
  9. More of the same over here. Keeping this little go case in the bag with me. One thing I can't do without though is chewing gum (not pictured!). I'll always pick some up before a gig and when working with other mixers I'll keep a stash in the wiring bag.
  10. Nice work! This looks awesome
  11. +1 Totally depends on the AC and their preferences. Though I've generally found on smaller shoots when working as a omb, camera ops are happy to give me a few minutes to set up tc / hops (I'll always refresh myself w/the camera manual beforehand). Working as an assist on union shows Ill just hand our tc boxes and jammed slates to the camera dept. I try to make a habit in double checking that the tc readout on camera matches the slates just to be sure. The main thing is to be flexible :-)
  12. Shooting by the water tonight here in Vancouver. Enjoying the last hour of sun!
  13. I don't think the product came to fruition. Saw this on their FB page a week ago - https://goo.gl/2mXBQ8
  14. I've been a happy tentacle user, fits my needs at the moment. Havent had any issues with them. The camera dept loves how light / small they are, but its looking like alot of the current tc options have that covered now :-)
  15. Hey Philip - I pm'd you with some options. Hope that helps.
