  1. Hi guysI'm doing some research on Foley for visual media for my final university project. If you have a couple of minutes could you fill in my questionnaire? https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/MNBFGPQCheersMartynhttp://www.mgreenaudio.co.uk
  2. Hi Everyone, I am a Sound Editor at a post sound studio in Hollywood, and we are in the process of building a new space. I was put in charge of designing our foley pits, and I don't really have any experience with the design and construction of them. This is a legitimate foley stage, so please don't give me ideas for portable pits. We are going to have one small pit in our ADR room, and then a larger pit for our theater. I have a few questions about the construction of these foley pits for anyone who might know. 1) How deep do the pits need to be? 2) For surfaces like tile, wood, and carpet, do I need dig out the space and pour concrete to put the tile and carpet on, or can I place the tile on the preexisting concrete without digging out the space? 3) I'm assuming the pit is one large hole, but each surface is divided by wood. What kind of wood and how thick does it need to be? 4) What is the ideal size for each surface? 5) I plan on pouring the concrete into a hole that is at least 4 feet deep to prevent it sounding hollow, but is there a way to keep the concrete surface from sound clicky? We aren't going to have a water pit, because there isn't enough budget to add plumbing to drain it. Any help you guys can give me would be much appreciated. -Matt
  3. Hey Guys, Finally, This is the second of the AO bags to go through the redesign process. Of course this bag is obviously very similar to the previous AO-1.5, the main change is the internal dimensions of the bag. Its the smallest of the AO bags. A lot of enquiries about the handles, pockets and modular sides have been brought up. I am dealing with quite a few requests for custom variations of the bag. I'll be sure to post pictures of these custom requests. Also, If certain customer adaptations or changes prove to be popular, then more than likely, that may well be an adaptation that can be permanently made to the factory stock AO. Thank you again for all your input and suggestions. 2.9lbs Empty, no strap. W11 x D5.5 x H6 The main changes from the old AO-1 are: Large access flap on back. (Media/Battery) With attached external pocket. NP1/BDS/transmitter pockets on both sides. Boom rest/headphone pouch/flask pocket on right. NP1 Velcro locks on each side. Metal harness attachment rings each side. Smaller compact collapsible front pocket. Accessory storage in front pocket. Interior copper colored lining. Longer carry handles. Longer vinyl cover. Double layer vinyl pocket for small equipment. Boom-pole attachment point. 2 x Solid dividers. http://www.portabrace.com/products/audio/organizers/923-ao-1x
  4. Hey all, I've edited this topic as I think people are getting confused and answering the wrong thing. I've gotten early into the preproduction of an upcoming film on which I will be sound recordist. It is a great opportunity to do whatever I can before those rushy production days. One thing I told them to do is wash the wardrobe. This is based on information I acquired here in posts about reducing lavalier clothing noise at jwsoundgroup. They asked me if there were any specifics so I decided to ask you guys directly. I wanted to know if anyone knew anything about the following: -Whether they can be safely washed several times in a row (without drying until the end) or washed once and then dried once but several times in succession? -If fabric softener helps noise? -If tumble dry is better or worse than clothesline? -If dry cleaning is effective at reducing noise (I've never done it personally)? -I also wondered if we should be aware about how much damage any of this causes to the clothes or their colors (still the visual aspect to consider)? -Anything else that is similar to the above but I might've missed? Yes I have washed clothes in the real world as everyone has, but never really paid attention to how "noisy" they sounded. It's probably got a lot behind it, this clothing-quieting-through-washing process. I wonder if there are production designers or costume designers who've got the whole process down? Is there someone accessible? I did look this up through jwsoundgroup via google, but it's difficult to do a search for "wash jwsoundgroup", "clothes noisy", or "clothes washing" or something like that without finding something unrelated about lavalier technique or maintaining our equipment. I apologize in advance if someone's already posted this topic somewhere (this one about how to go about washing clothes). Thanks for the help.
  5. I would like to please gather your input in a brainstorming frenzy! Portabrace haven't made too many significant changes to their AO-Organizer series of bags, with the recent AO-633 being an exception. It's been a project I've wanted to dive into and get started for a while, as I'd like to improve the bag line for all its users, including myself. After attending NAB this year, I was really encouraged by the feedback I got from users. So I am now making sure that Portabrace's "Audio Department"... Me. Discuss suggestions about product development and modifications. What better place to research those changes than here! Below is the current list of intended mods. But I would also like to establish as to wether the current removable sides of the AO bag need to remain removable? Are you using them for setups? Are they a waist of time? 1) The top lid zip closest to body was removed. 2) Added a removable double vinyl storage lid to the top. Opening away from the user. 3) Added three harness ring attachment points to each side of the bag. For increased attachment options and balance. 4) Reconfigured both right and left removable sides with: Left: External vinyl covered transmitter and receiver pockets. Right: External vinyl covered transmitter and receiver pockets and additional headphone/flask pocket. 5) Added velcro system that allows you to compact and compress the large front pocket flat against the bag when not in use or traveling. Along with the list above we are working on an access point to batteries and memory card slots (below the mixer) i.e 633, maxx, 552 and so on. (The AO-664 already features this design) Thank you for your input. I hope this doesn't get to crazy!
  6. I've been planning upgrades to the kit and have found google sketchup extremely helpful in properly sizing the racks and laying things out before buying parts, anyone else using cad to layout parts and such?
