  1. Boom op-less

  2. Folding Bag Cart v1.0

    Quickfists - you can find em on amazon
  3. Folding Bag Cart v1.0

    I've been thinking of going down this route for a simple omb cart that would allow me to cut down on harness/bag wearing time, and hold my poles/cases when on the move. How have you been liking this set up? Anything you would change if you had to do it again?
  4. Safdie Brothers Talk About Audio on 'Good Time'

    Despite this odd interview I really enjoyed the movie! On top of directing, one of the bros also played a lead role in the film. I'm curious if it was a OMB doing sound on set - don't think I saw a boom op credit in there
  5. How to hide a Sennheiser ME 2 on talent

    I'd push to rent COS11s wired for G3s from a local rental house. For $10-15/day you'll be a happy camper!
  6. Need a new boom stand. Suggestions?

    Recently picked up this stand for a few travel gigs and its been working great. Been hanging my backpack off it with a carabiner and its been very solid. Thanks for the recommendation!
  7. High temperature lav mic technique

    +1 It's been getting hot up here, and when the skin or clothing gets soaked through a few non tape solutions can definitely save the day. Chest straps, and the hide a mic bra holder have worked well. For moderate heat i find iso prop and transpore are able to handle most situations.
  8. filming in a suana

    Haha! Now there's an idea. Yea, I think I may try a stereo pair of sm58s should the occasion arise.
  9. filming in a suana

    I may have the opportunity to record the audio of a First Nations sweat lodge ceremony on a documentary Ive been working on, and wanted to see if anyone has advice for what mics to bring for these conditions. The lodge is about 9ft × 9ft, a dome structure built with branches and covered by tarps. There's a pit in the middle that is filled with red hot rocks, and eventually water is poured on it creating alot of moisture in the lodge. We participated in the sweat lodge ceremony our last time up, but didn't document it. I've seen in this thread people have had success letting their mics warm up with the room, but I still feel hesitant about leaving 416 in there with the amount of moisture that is released. I'm leaning towards a waterproof solution, or perhaps non lubricated condoms over the shotgun... Any suggestions would be welcome, as recording in a sweat lodge would be a first for me.
  10. Rates & other tips when traveling?

    Copy that! thanks everyone for weighing in on this
  11. Rates & other tips when traveling?

    To clarify - are you suggesting bill the overnight flight as 1 travel day (full rate) and the shoot day as usual - totalling 2 days?
  12. Rates & other tips when traveling?

    This seems like a fitting thread for a question I have on travel days. How do you bill your travel days with overnight flights or travelling the same day as shooting? A client of mine may have a 1 day shoot where we'd take an overnight flight (5 hours), arrive at our destination in the morning - shoot for a few hours and fly back in the afternoon/night. Im used to breaking it down when a travel day is its own separate day, but this one's got me a bit confused. Any tips?
  13. View From The Office:

    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!
  14. Ultrasone headphones for location work. Which ones?

    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.
  15. Ultrasone headphones for location work. Which ones?

    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.
