  1. Gear Appraisal

    Depreciated value. I think there's some forum lost-in-translation happening here or something. We're competent in assessing our values. I thought it was pretty clear in my OP that my intention was to ask if anyone had had a gear appraisal done and for feedback on the experience. I guess not. Constantin, certainly agree with your input. Though laborious with 500+ items, this may be our best bet.
  2. Gear Appraisal

    Thanks Eric. We've done that for the sake of projections, but, we're looking for a more detailed version. Maybe that's not as achievable as we'd thought?
  3. Gear Appraisal

    I think I've been misunderstood. Sure, I'd do fine selling off a piece of gear. A couple mixers and I are going into business together and need to accurately be able to acknowledge the assets we're bringing in. We've got a large spreadsheet with four tabs of long gear lists. We'd like to avoid sifting through the WTB/FS section or eBay to assess each and figured a retailer, especially one with a used section, would have the tools to do this better.
  4. Gear Appraisal

    Have you guys ever successfully had someone do a gear appraisal for you? I've got a pretty big spreadsheet of gear, mixers/recorders, booms, wireless, etc. I'd like appraised and haven't had any luck going thru the expected channels here in NY, Gotham and Pro Sound. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!
  5. Any PA's near the truck ?

    Ha, found the site where there's quite a few different version shirts. Thanks for sharing. Unfortunately, no sound option.
  6. Donnersmarck's new film "Werk ohne Autor" first trailer

    Looks wild! I haven't seen anything by him but this trailer has me interested. Thanks for posting, and I'm sure it sounds fantastic.
  7. K-Tek Now shipping the Stingray Junior!

    Thanks Jim, it's a junior.
  8. K-Tek Now shipping the Stingray Junior!

    Just got this bag, and the maxx, to act as my small kit. Love it. Still figuring out cable distro and where to put the np-1 (awkwardly in that front compartment in this picture). Had my first real job running around with it today and I feel great - compared to the Nomad and Orca combo I was running out, even for a boom and a lav kind of job, it's a back-saver.
  9. Text entry problem

    Suddenly and randomly I can post! After nearly a month it feels like.
  10. Smart Slate 101

    Martin, I think the sentiments we're seeing here reflect the purpose of this forum though - for and by professionals. The OP could easily take this question to his or her social network first, and likely receive more appropriate feedback. There's not really a place for it here - sort of like when an earnest PA comes up to me on a busy set and says something to the effect of "oh I dabble in sound too, can you show me what everything does?" Sorry, not now.
  11. FCC License

    Kevin, I seem to be having the same difficulties you originally had - but I cannot overcome them (though not at 3 1/2 hours yet). I'm on a mac alternating between safari/firefox. Anyone else with this setup have suggestions? The application page, like the picture posted above, doesn't entirely load and is primarily a grey screen with lots of useless buttons that don't activate anything.
  12. IATSE Local 52 test date

    I think a lot of people are in that boat, best of luck finding them. I'm still awaiting the announcement of the next admissions process, just barely missed September w/ the certifications, but they're very "TBD" right now.
  13. Freight rates & other things

    Best of luck, Rob.
  14. The Jonas Storm

    I'm sure I'm not alone on this site in saying how much I love the quiet of a snowstorm. Last night walking around Brooklyn, as long as a big gust of wind wasn't at us, was pretty special. Still haven't dug out the car yet tho, not looking forward to that.
  15. Arri Alexa Mini, The Results Are In...

    Worked (almost) with it for the first time today, package came with an A-box for XLR inputs. After a couple hours it finally had to be swapped back at the rental house for an Alexa ST. Portuguese company needed an aspect ratio of 4:3, which current firmware doesn't support? For the brief moments I thought I'd be working with it it seemed perfectly agreeable. We were outside on a windy day and didn't wind up getting into any real situations, so I didn't get a chance to notice any kind of fan noise.
