  1. 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.
  2. I haven't dig deep into sound yet because I learn better when I play with toys than just reading about them. Please pardon my inexperienced. I been interning under a wedding videographer and we have been talking about me becoming a dedicated sound for the wedding. How could this be done theoretically? Should I have many wireless lav plug into my mixer during the ceremony? And I think I would just walk around with a short boom for everything else. You don't have to go into the nitty gritty detail. I just want to know if this could theoretically be done.
  3. Post audio workflow

    Hi All, Post Production Audio Question: I have come across some post audio workflows and the topics of submix, buses and loudness normalization. It's a side of post audio I have not seen and it does provide cleaner and fuller audio, but I do have some questions about this workflow: To do the EQ, noise reduction, desses, etc.. for each audio clip is better to do a submix bus for each audio clip and do the EQ and other stuff OR do a submix bus for that one track and do the EQ and other stuff? and after the submix bus then do the loudness normalization? Any answers and suggestions are welcome. Thank you.
  4. Hi all, Just wondering if anybody on here had any experience with travel type shows, e.g. Parts Unknown, Nat Geo sort of stuff, and how one might go about getting on those crews? I'm relatively new, but have always wanted to work on travel shows and was just wondering if anybody could recommend some proactive steps I could take to work my way there eventually. Thanks! Josh
  5. Box Rental vs Package Rental

    Please please please! Refuse to sign box rental agreements for your sound package. It's not a box or kit, it's a package. It's not a drill, tape measure, laptop, or cell phone. I put $1800 worth of wireless gear on talent, and they walk away from me for 6 hours or more. I hand out $300 comteks to people in video village, and do not have them in my possession for 12 hours. Read the box rental form carefully. When you sign the box rental agreement, there's a clause that states that production is not liable for damage to your gear. On a show a long time ago, I submitted an l & d form for a lost comtek, and the studio attached my signed box rental agreement in email refusing to reimburse me. Don't sign the box rental form! Your company should Invoice the production very much like the g & e rental houses do.
  6. Hey Everybody! Let me first say that this site has been an amazing resource for me, having been doing production sound full time for about 2 years now (Started right after I finished school) I know that there are tonnes of times I thought and applied what I learned on this site, it's a really amazing place and I'm so fortunate that people are so willing to share all their insights, mistakes, and experience. Now, I am asking for your help! I am a Sound Mixer/Boom Operator, but I have also found a new interest in Directing/Producing! I have launched the Indiegogo campaign for my Second short film, entitled 'iBrain', a futuristic short film in which the latest piece of technology does fit in your hand, it fits in your brain! We are on a 30 day campaign to raise $4000 to shoot the film this coming March and it would mean a lot to me if you could watch the video, share the page, tell your friends, anything you can do! www.indiegogo.com/ibrain I am excited to do my second film as the most sound conscious Director in Canada! Thanks so much guys! (I included a screenshot, that's me on the left)
