  1. Hi All, I'm not located in a major center so I've been checking Craigslist regularly for networking opportunities and audio gigs. Below is a description of a what I gather is an "indie"gig offered in a recent posting in Toronto. Rate appears to be "per day" -no mention of the hours involved. What are your thoughts about the equipment and service requirements versus the rate offered? For a newbie trying to build a network from scratch, are these gigs reasonable in their labour and gear expectations? How close or far is this to being in line with current Toronto "indie"rates? I realize the importance of upholding the collective rate standard for local sound mixers and would like to be further informed. Thank you for your thoughts and professional advice.

  2. Hi to All in T.O. In the process of comparison shopping for gear in Toronto - am I missing any other (or new) suppliers other than the 2 main "usual suspects"? Have had great assistance from both these very helpful suppliers of course, just seeing if I've missed any other sources to check out. Thanks very much. Have a great Monday :-) Cheers, Dave

  7. Hey there, It's down-time at my usual workplace and I'd love to finally take the opportunity to get to work with some of you maestros. If I may, I'd like to contribute with two pair of extra hands in return for... just that: the experience. About. I get along with everyone, and find it almost impossible to dislike anyone. On top of that, I'm a strong believer in good work ethics, and I carry around a positive attitude towards the day, the night, the hours, the work, the set, and the crew. Experience. I've worked as the sole sound recorder on a few infomercials, as well as the odd low-budget independent short film here and there. However, I have looots to learn. I've never worked with experienced location sound recorders. During most of 2011-2012 (my first year out of Uni), I've been working as a backup Technician on different shows on CBC Radio (News, Current Affairs, and Arts and Entertainment). And my work weeks have varied from 7 days a week to 0 days a week. Website: http://www.nimashams.com Please don't hesitate to send me a note for more (résumé, references, etc.)...

    Union Newbie

    Just joined Toronto's IATSE 873 Union and am now calling in my availability everyday via their automated phone system. I'm wondering what else I can do to get that 'first call' happen sooner? (Other than general Toronto FIlm Industry networking on Indie sets). Should I be calling up people from current shows seeing if there's a spot or just keep calling in my status and pray for rain? Thanks. Dennis Nicholson

    Beginning a Career ...

    Hello everyone, I had originally posted this on the RAMPS google group, and was advised that I might get more feedback if I posted here. This is my first post at jwsound. I'm a former AV tech looking to transition into the world of location recording. I'm looking to volunteer, or job shadow, a location recordist to gain a bit of practical experience. I'm based in Toronto, Canada. I always show up on time, work hard, stay out of the way, and don't whine about assigned tasks. If anyone knows of opportunities for me, or if anyone has any advice for me, please reply. I will appreciate any information, and don't be afraid to be frank. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Sincerely, Marc-André Paquin
