  1. Vid Chat: Whit Norris

    This time around I had the pleasure of speak with Whit Norris right before hurricane Irma made her presence known in Atlanta. We mainly focus on some of the projects he's worked on, some gear talk, and what it takes to get started in the industry.
  2. I need some used sound equipment

    Used pricing on this stuff isn't going to be that much less than new. You are better off getting this equipment new and then you have the warranty.

  4. The Opposite of Mixing?

    Interesting...I had to take so many physics classes in order to get my sound engineering degree (I'll admit they were mostly electronics, but had a regular physics AND an acoustics class in there) that with all of them if I earned a sound engineering degree at the school I went to I ended up with a physics minor. OH, we also had to have through calculus, so it was pretty math intensive.
  5. MixPre-6 – worth it for this beginner?

    Things I'd be considering: -Save up for a 633 instead -Instead of the Rodelink look at the Lectro L-Series. I know it's a BIG price jump, but there are reasons for that. The Rodelink is fine for youtubers or really low budget corporate stuff, but I've had reliability issues just in my home office doing tests where I don't have a lot of wifi flying around.
  6. Vid Chat: SENATOR

    Senator was nice enough to spend almost 3 1/2 hours with me doing a video chat, and it's all here. Yes, it's a long one, but there's lot's of good stuff in here. Once Senator gets rolling I just sat back and listened with just a few questions here and there. This is a good one to start and stop as you are able, unless of course you have the time to watch the whole thing.
  7. Which Rycote Zeppelin? Navigating the maze...

    Having a couple of kids in cub scouts, the motto "be prepared" comes to mind; and this is why I like the modular systems. You may only ever use it with one mic, but you never know what could pop up and you might want to add an extension to it in the future. For interiors, using the 50, something like the baseball would work, and Rycote just announced a furry cover for the baseball so you could use it outside in light wind as well.
  8. Video Chat Full; Michael P. Clark

    Here's a short excerpt where Mike talks about working on Good Eats:
  9. Michael P. Clark is a production sound mixer based out of Atlanta, and is currently mixing The Walking Dead. He's also done season two of Stranger Things, Good Eats (one of my personal favorite shows), Feasting on Asphalt (another personal fav), and many others. Here's the full video where we talk about working on these shows and other things. Thanks, Mike, for taking the time out of your weekend to do this with me. I really appreciate it!
  10. Here's a short preview of a video chat I did with Michael P. Clark, who mixes The Walking Dead, Stranger Things, and has done other shows such as Good Eats and Feasting on Asphalt. The longer video that this is from will be available soon.
  11. "The Art of Windmill Maintenance"

    It's weird...at around the 5:35 mark when the guy is showing the inside of the thing, and you see all this stuff moving, and you hear his voice, but you don't hear anything from inside the room. I would have expected to hear all this wooden gears and noise coming out from there.
  12. Sound Devices Mix Pre-3 and Mix Pre-6

    I made a video about using timecode with the MixPres. Hopefully this clears up any confusion.
  13. LA Post-Audio Houses?

    When I first moved to LA in 2001 I was an intern at Dantracks. At the time we were working on 13 Ghosts, The Matrix Reloaded, and a bunch of other stuff. I just looked at their website and they haven't really updated in a long time, but it's worth reaching out to them. I know at the time they prided themselves on their internship program. I got to see and do a lot of stuff that was really cool. My very first day I was on a Foley stage watching John Roesch (amazing Foley artist) do Foley on 13 Ghosts. www.danetracks.com
  14. Video Chat with Jan

    Here's Jan talking about her start in production sound. I found this very interesting.
