  1. As well as watching the American equivalent we decided to re-visit the 1990 English version. Well 4.3 picture and 16mm film is not the best but the sound is interesting!!! All done on a boom (probably a 416) with brief wide shots overlaid from close-ups. Great boom operating though with much close dialogue on the move! Gee I was using lavs a plenty since 1980 on features but I guess the style for tv was simple Oh well styles move on now lavs in ties and frocks are the current trend Interesting mike
  2. 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
  3. Hello, Just to announce that the first indication on Weapon fans are a big improovement over the Epic's one. I would push production to go with the Weapon if you have this choice. The fan noise seems less a problem now. Here a encouraging Weapon user statement: Pat
  4. New to the glory that is JW Sound

    Hello all, I recently discovered this forum and am learning new techniques/knowledge each time I log on and read. I wanted to reach out and ask for any advice anyone can lend? I'm based out of Austin, Texas and have primarily worked on shorts, several independent feature films, a couple of feature documentaries and am looking to take that next step up the metaphorical job pole that is the film industry. I'm a hard, disciplined worker who is always willing to learn new and innovative ways to capture the best audio possible. If anyone in the Austin/Central Texas area is in need of a boom operator or a sound assistant, I would greatly appreciate any and all who reach out to contact me. Thanks!

  6. My next cart thinking has to do with the above title. Saw a magnificent upright custom case cart here (will get and post an image of it in due course) here with a hinge top that I imagined might work design-wise to: Lid monitor storage Sides Protect the top shelf Light rain and sun protection Will hold a tarp from monitors and mix surface It will have to be custom, but absolutely doable. Then a sliding shelf to be made out of/on top of extant static mixer shelf so I may draw the mixer back over my knees some. Also custom work, but...I think these things will make the cart perfect and I can quit tweaking for quite some time. Snort. Jan
  7. DC area union

    Question to all DC area sound guys here, which one is the local union for you, considering the multi-state crossing? Might get relocated to VA and want to look into the requirements to do it properly. Thanks
  8. Hi everybody, I'm about to start a documentary project in which we will be exploring a cave that has never been explored before. So far we know we will be descending at least 100 meters, but the idea is to go as far down as possible. Has any of you done this kind of job? Can you please share some advice regarding your experience recording sound in this kind of situation? (or any similar situation). Thanks a lot for your help! All the best, Andres.

  10. Hi What system do you use for wireless sound for the director. I am recording commercials with a small crew, but need to send the sound wireless to the director. I would normal use boom and one wireless mic on the actor. Would you send a mono signal or both boom and wireless mic ? I would like a small pocket system where it is possible to send a stereo signal. And a system that can run on batteries, instead of charging system. I would like to hear from yours experience. I am recording on a Sound devices 664. Thanks

  13. Car engine sound for games

    Hi everyone, I am the developer of an indie Racing Game and i would be very happy to collaborate with someone that have skills or experience in recording sounds for games. Me and a friend started working on that project about 2 years ago and we do that on our free time. That is why the progress are kind of slow but we try our best to work on it little by little. Here is the link to our project : http://www.redline-e.com/ You can download the game for PC and MAC at the moment. But later we plan to make an Android and iOS version as well. I am a big car enthusiast myself, and i know how important are sounds in a car simulation. I would do my best with your recommendation to update the engine sound simulation inside my game. Right now its very simple. You can add as much sounds as you want, usually i go for 3 engine off throttle sounds and 3 engine on throttle sounds. I also usually add Idling sound. So, the samples are like : - 1000 rpm sample, - 2000 rpm sample, - 4000 rpm sample, - 6000 rpm sample. Then i up or down the picth to make the seemless transitions between samples. I guess that most racing game sound engine work kind of same way. As i have no recording equipment and also no skills and no experience to record car sounds, that is why i ask if someone would like to participate to our peoject. Waiting for any kind of feedback or help. Regards.

  15. Hi all! If you are looking to fill any position in the sound department for any production in NYC or nearby, look no further! I'm available to work as a mixer, boom op, or third. I graduated from NYU with a degree in Music Tech, taking many classes in film production and film sound, as well as working in over 20+ student films mostly as a mixer or boom op. While at NYU, I was mentored by production sound mixer Chat Gunter. I now have a few years of experience in production sound under my belt, and before that, many more in music recording as a recording and mixing engineer. If in need of equipment rental, I own a nice kit, including Sound Devices 302 Mixer, Zaxcom Nomad 10 Mixer/Recorder, Sennheiser MKH 416 shotgun mic, pair of AKG Blueline modular microphones, and Sennheiser wireless. I have superb work ethic, which some have claimed to be second to none! Looking forward to meeting and working with you!

  18. Hey Guys, Thought I would share this crazy story. I was shooting a reality show for Much Music in Banff, Alberta and the director approached me the morning of with a crazy request (as per usual). He wanted to have the contestants start at the top of this hill and go tubing down to the bottom delivering lines. I thought it would be a great chance to try out my Lectro SMVs at 250mw. The talent was about 150 meters away at the top of the hill and I had to pull my 411s out of the bag to get the antennas higher up but as you can see from the picture, pretty much full RF the whole way down. Great work Lectrosonics!
  19. Hi everyone, My name is Pat Kiloran. I recently, in August of 2012, moved out to LA to pursue a career in audio after being a musician for several years and attending audio school in London, Ontario. I wasn't sure whether I would go into music production or sound for picture more heavily, but as it turns out, I ended up pursuing (and really enjoying!) sound for picture. Most of my initial work consisted of low-budget films, shorts, and other small narrative-based productions. As time has went on, I have really gotten into and started enjoying more ENG type work and doc/reality/corporate-style work. But I love being involved in the sound-team of any genre of production. I also do some post-production and music engineering when I get a chance. Anyway, I am still admittedly very green in this industry and have absolute loads to learn. So, I just wanted to take the chance to introduce myself on this site (which has been really helpful and educational). Thanks for reading, and hopefully I'll run into some of you soon! Pat K
  20. I would like to get into the sound for picture business doing documentary/film/TV work and ENG work as a Sound Recordist and Boom Operator. I've been a sound engineer for 11 years in New York City mostly mixing sound for galas and corporate events. I have a bachelor's degree in recording arts and music production. I have a great set of ears and great personality. How can I get into this business? Who do I call? Where do I go? What should I look for? Where should I start?
  21. Hey Guys! Need advice again! I got asked to do a 2-day reality gig that will be a pretty big setup. Here are the specs: Equipment: CAMERAS: Canon 5Ds Sony FS700s SOUND: SD 664 CL6 8x Lectro UCR411a 8x Lectro UM400 8x COS11 2x Senny G3s (backup wireless) Senny MKH60 4+ Røde Mics BDS & NP1s There are 2 main setups that I was concerned about: SETUP 1: 4 people in 4 different cars driving at undeterminable distances from eachother. 1-2 cameras in each car. Interviews being conducted in each car. QUESTION: Since I obviously cannot be in 4 places at once, and I don't know where the cars will be in relation to each other (I will be in one of the cars) I don't want to rely on the wireless for the primary sound. My solution: Røde mics on each 5D? I know they are not the best quality audio wise, but I don't see any way around it. SETUP 2: 4-8 people in a restaurant for a taste testing scenario. Multiple cameras. I will wire up everyone, but I also wanted to have a boom going for ambience. I won't be able to get it in the shot. ----- The production wanted all ISOs, which is fine, because I have 12 tracks to work with with the CL6. In standard reality (in all your guys experience), does post want a 2-mix primarily or ISOs? I am not the most experienced mixing on the fly, so I would prefer ISOs as well. Just wanted to know how the real people do it. This question may seem dumb, but hey, how do you keep track of 8 people simultaneously?! Keeping consitent levels without auto mix? Wires. To hide or not to hide? Not having to hide the lavs would speed up the production two-fold, and I wouldn't have to worry about clothing shenanigans. Do most reality productions care if the lav is hidden? Should I just ask if they care? Power. How long do you think I will be able to run my bag off of 1 IDX NP-L7S (14.8V/71Wh Lithium Ion)? I am powering 8 UCR411s and my SD 664. I will probably be rolling all day, and I have 4 batts to work with. Any other tips would be greatly appreciated! I have never worked with this many simultaneous tracks before so please let me know the best way to stay on top of everything. -Ryan
  22. Hi guys! I was in a meeting about an upcoming TV series yesterday when the producer dropped in the old "oh and we'll get the presenter in a swamp and he might dive in." Having never been presented with this problem before, I thought it best to ask those who may have. Based on this conversation, I imagine I'd have to purchase a water-resistent transmitter, but how best to protect the lav when / if our guy gets submerged in muddy water? Any help would be appreciated! Cheers, Eren

  24. 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)
  25. 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.
