    Broken gear on a shoot, production won't pay!

    There are people you use the documents on and ones you don't.. if you have relationships with clients that have always been fair, and have paid loss damages before with no issue,probably not necessary. But, there are jobs where I would definitely lead with this document..usually a few days before the show starts. I make it look like normal course if business. It is not much different than the ones used by rental houses.. If production wants to get any gear from them, they don't bat an eye.. not much different for us.. choose your targets and do what you think is best..

    About four pages.... Company name throughout, signatures, addresses etc... Keep every email, try not to communicate with no way of (preserving) what was said... meaning, stay away from spoken phone calls unless you are legally allowed to record them in your state... Agree with Phillip... try first to reason.... can't hurt... He may be hoping you "go away" ... Some persistence may pay off... When he discovers you won't go away, he may cave ... be polite but firm..

    I would love to, but mine is filled with company data signatures and names... I wish I had time to go in and eliminate all the data and leave you the form... but I just don't.. Maybe someone here has a more generic one.. Get in the habit of emailing it ahead of the show... best of luck..

    This has been well covered. You should of provided him with a rental form from you clearly stating the responsibilities of both parties in the event of loss or damage to any of your gear... This form I provide to each production BEFORE we shoot... and have them sign it. It is a very thorough form. Then, there is no grey area... Remedy if a court situation ever comes up is a no brainer for anybody involved.

    Looking for a non audio looking bag for my MixPre 3

    Yeah... I was not kidding... That unit is so small.. a small man purse or a fanny pack is about right... I have one in a really small audio bag and its swimming in there.. Leave room for a small sync box so you can run a small cable into the aux in... your good to go... unless you want to use 3 wireless...then, back to the small audio bag..

    DIY Boom Holder/Cradle (Fishing Pole Holder) Link?

    Too big of fish John.. That weld could break on either one of those models... bad weld, or too much stress... it is only so strong. I probably would not hang a 15' pole at the poles end with one... Normal doc poles or longer poles with some counter hanging off the back help keep things working.. The thing is a bit of a funny shape. I could see it getting stressed just storing it..

    DIY Boom Holder/Cradle (Fishing Pole Holder) Link?

    Guys, it's a boom pole... normally Carbon fiber.... The rod holder is steel... there is no way it's breaking, unless your using a lead boom pole... It's the same thing... I never once had the feeling it was not up to the job or dangerous in any way. One on top is $14 one on bottom is the Remote audio one... $30.... The difference... threaded post.. and a slightly longer holding hook.. (which I prefer). $18 for the one on from Dalton on Amazon is a good deal...

    Something so close is available at Walmart in the fishing dept. for like $12.00 or less... I have used one for years... It's a pole holder... Ok, maybe $14...
