  1. I have a buddy in Shanghai that works in production. Middle of night there, but I'm sure he'll email me back when he wakes up D
  2. Switchers, Distribution Amps, Splitters, Matrix n More. Roll your own at Gefen http://www.gefen.com/kvm/productlisting.jsp
  3. Vin~~~Nice work. Cute movie. Umrika is NOT pronounced OOOM-REEKA..... slapped my forehead on that one. Miss you.
  4. Anecdotally, I overheard on a Broadcast Set the other day~~~ "Screw that crap, bring in a Dugan" Dan is AARP++
  5. Had personal recording experience with "Omega Recoil" Tesla coil in Oakland a couple of years ago~~~ 8ft tall, Toroid about 6 ft diameter~~ million volts Transmitter out of the suit/cage at the time was 750Mhz lectro~~illegal but disposable~~~there's something Illegal/Irrational about a million volt anything IFB Lectro for talent was 670Mhz~~~ not disposable RF worked fine both directions with High Voltage operating However The Plasma arcing is really loud~~~~110 to 120db at 1ft ~~~the talent always wears hard muff hearing protection so IFB guzinta to talent is manageable, but the talent mic is a problem~~~Swiss Army Knife incision just below Adam's Apple was quickly ruled out. Really Old Sony ECM50 taped to the side of talent's mouth worked pretty OK ~~~~Strongly suggest wild VO. ~~~~~if you need realtime audio I'd rig up a David Clark Aviation Headset/Mic or sumptin like that.
  6. I have membership, respectable resume, professional relationships, production relationships, experience, engineering background, agreeable attitude, flexible rates, complete equipment package, friends, union safety certification, reliable transportation and optimism. This craft/career is as difficult now as it was 30 years ago .
  7. When I work as a DIT, I can always quickly slip an 8GB sound card in somewhere. Takes 90 seconds usually. DITs are usually crushed at the end of the day when our heavy lifting starts. It is not so much the size of the data that crushes us, but the yammering of ADs, production, PAs, teamsters asking "How much longer?" At wrap, I make an estimate of MY end time and announce that time on Channel 1 and stick a handmade picture of a clock to my cart. I've usually prepped the authorities to not bother me. Sometimes, a missing file can throw the whole data thing into FUBAR~~~ that's why data people are so cranky. The hard part of DIT is managing the voices around them~~~ the data, not so much
  8. I have a handful of 8GB SD cards. Cheaper than CF. After doing the PhilP waveagent tricks on the laptop I offload to the SD card and sandwich it between 2 3X5 cards and handwrite "Incredibly Valuable Sound Data"w production name and date on the 3X5. I bill em $20~~~ SD cost is 7-10USD~~~ I dont write "BOZOS" on the 3X5. No reason to burn a DVD~~ most current MBPs dont have DVD anymore~~~ cost of memory is, Uh, $20~~~And private, unlike the dropbox scheme. Slam Dunk. Refer the client to the Ashley Madison FUBAR and your internet time shall be cut to NADA. If you're not carrying a laptop, at least be prepared for the alternatives. I would guess that the NY Subway sound recordists might be reluctant to carry even one more item that only protects the producers from themselves. I do admire the Subway concept. Amazon~~~Sandisk, 8GB, Class 4 SD Card~~~~ Pack of 10 $44.95~~~~ still $20 to client if you have the nerve
  9. Yes, Pat Inhofer's Resolve tutorial is on Lynda~~about 12 hours worth. Very nicely catalogued. Usually I can get what info I need about Resolve, Premier, Excel, Photoshop, Dreamweaver in less than 5 minutes. Headbanging Begone~~~~ Lynda really rocks
  10. Confirmed~~~Talked to my BA at ICG just now, and yes the Lynda.com offer is IATSE wide. Best deal in town.
  11. I'm starting to feel like this~~~~~
  12. Oh my, Mike~~SNAFU~~~The great grandaddy of acronyms~~~Your litany summarizes 20 years of suffering~~~ I think we need a group hug.
  13. Plan, Prep, Test, Shoot~~~~This order of things has been decreed by many deities. Never violate this decree.
  14. Legend, hearsay, anecdotal~~~ Philips had surveyed music people about their new technology in the 70s and asked "How long should our device record?" Otto Klemperer, a prominent conductor, said that it should be able to hold his version of Beethoven's 9th symphony, a rather lethargic version at 72 minutes. Done deal
