  1. New to the area & to the Local 479 union looking to get started. Available for work as a boom op/utility on union or non-union productions. You can reach me at (301) 442-6565 or corey.chiles@gmail.com. Thanks!
  2. Hello! My name is William, and my question is a simple one, albeit over-asked. How does one get into the industry? I mean this in the most general sense. Should I start low and work my way up? Should I just buy a bunch of sound gear and pray? There seems to be so many paths to take, but I am unsure and honestly scared. I don't know what I'm doing and would love to hear what other people have done, and what's worked and what hasn't. My Current "Plan" My current plan is to move to Georga in the coming year, specifically Atlanta. I thought it would be best to try contacting people that are already in the industry, asking if they need any help with a Sound PA or Utility. I am willing to wrap as many cables and get them as much coffee as necessary. Hopefully, one day I can buy some of my own gear and start actually working as a Mixer/ENG on various productions. I don't see that as happening for a long time though. Does this sound like a good plan? Or would it unprofessional to just contact people already in the industry asking for work? What do you suggest I change about my current "plan of attack"? Thanks for your help! ~William Hirsch
  3. Hi Gang, I've been reading this forum for a long while now trying to learn as much as I can. Thank you everyone for the experience and insight that you have shared. It has been invaluable in supplementing my education. I graduated from Temple University's Film program in May, and have just recently made the move from Philadelphia to NYC. Having been decided on sound from the start, I worked as a Boom Op and Sound Recordist throughout the past 5 years on student and independent films, and more recently interviews for online news and corporate projects. Now I wish to continue on the path, and am available as a sound utility, or as an intern. I can provide references from past projects. I hope to hear from anyone looking to add a hard worker to their team. -Christopher Scott
  4. Hello all! My name is John Harton and I'm a recently graduated Sound Design student from the Savannah College of Art and Design. My wife and I are moving up to Atlanta after I get back from a gig in CA in about three weeks and I wanted to put myself up if anyone needs a boom operator or utility. I'm looking to ultimately get into narrative work and also recently wrapped my first feature as a boom op ("Christine" which shot in Savannah). I'll be at the ATL sound mixer mixer at the end of the month, but if anyone has work they need help with or have to pass up, I'd appreciate any and all the help I can get! Can't wait to get involved in the Atlanta sound community, from what I hear the sound crews of middle Georgia rock a mic like none other! Feel free to PM or call at 970-two three two- 6840 . Cheers!

  6. To all LA Sound Mixers, My name is Thomas Snodgrass and I'm trying to break into the location sound biz I've been doing small freelance gigs here and there while working full time in a restaurant. I own a 633, MKH-50 and 60 but rent all of my wireless etc for my gigs. If you ever need a good boom op or utility I'd love to be added to your list. I have an audio engineering degree and years of experience with all types of audio equipment. Also, if you ever just need a little "pro bono" help or are willing to let someone tag along and pick your brain, I'd love the opportunity. Thanks! -Thomas-
  7. Hello, Everyone!!! My name is Scott Harnell and I'm in the beginning stages of a career in production sound for film and television. I've been doing my homework (read Location Audio Simplified and Location Sound Bible, as well as lots of posts on the JWSound forums) and have started slowly putting together my kit. Now, I'd really like to gather first-hand experience from a seasoned professional. So far, I've worked on two professional gigs. The first was the official webcast of the Formula Drift event at Road Atlanta last year and the second was a documentary on the Atlanta Police Department's first sketch artist. At the Formula Drift event, I helped load and unload all of the gear, ran and gathered cable, placed spot mics for tire and engine noise, and was essentially a PA and sound utility in one. My experience on the documentary had me sitting solo at the sound helm, wiring the subject with a lav, and mixing. If you'd like some help, I'd love to assist you on any of your future projects in any way possible. I'd be willing to load and unload gear, get your coffee, check your batteries, wrangle your cables, or just be a gofer. If presented with the opportunity, I'd be most professional, invisible/silent, and make it a point to never be in the way, seeking only to facilitate a smooth and efficient shoot. If you could use some help, or would want to get some coffee or lunch to see if you'd be interested, please feel free to reach me at 404-218-3155 or scottharnell@gmail.com. Thanks in advance!
  8. 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!
  9. Hello, I have posted a similar topic on this forum before but got no response. Hoping for a different result this time. I am a young broadcast mixer/a2 who is looking to learn the art of location mixing and recording. I have been getting a steady flow of reality and corporate gigs, but if I had the opportunity to do a job with more than a few lavs I would not be prepared. I am hoping to find an experienced mixer in the Bay Area to show me the ropes. I'd love to stop by a set and 2nd or 3rd for a day, but even an email dialogue with a successful local mixer would be awesome. Any and all help is appreciated! Thanks.
  10. Hello, I am an experienced broadcast A1 and A2, and am looking to expand my skillset into the world of location sound mixing and recording. I am looking for any utility or boom work in the Bay Area, and am willing to work/learn for free under the right mixer. If anyone has the need, or knows a good place to start, please let me know. Thanks!
  11. Hi there! If anyone here in the Greater LA area needs a boom operator or a utility guy, my hands/skills are available for the foreseeable future. I also have my own humble mixing gear and experiences, but I'm still building towards what producers usually demand. But I want to be back on set, connecting with more experienced sound ops to learn more about our department, this profession, and the industry as a whole. As a boom operator, I'm a tall and slim guy, so getting above and out of frame is no problem. As a utility, I'm learning new ways to quickly wire, wrangle, and coordinate equipment every day. In short - if you're looking for an eager, experience-hungry sound assistant in the LA area, please drop me a line anytime. PM me or check out my website for a full list of credits, equipment, and demos. Thanks! Matt Brodnick Web: bit.ly/mbsound Resume
  12. Hi mates, I am Daniele, an Italian sound recordist and , if it is not a problem, I would ask you some advices: I would like to work abroad just to do some difference experience and to improve my knowledge seeing how other people work. Do you have any advices to give me? For me, 2 or 3 mouths of working experience will be enough. Obviously if I should stay more than 2/3 mouths abroad for job, for me is not a problem. I am ready to do cable man, boom operator in a set to learn how is this work abroad and also to improve my english. I am looking for jobs on mandy.com but nobody answered to me. In attachment you will find my C.V.. If you listen that some Sound Mixer is looking for a cable man or a boom operator, I am ready to come and start to work. I hope in a your answer. Thanks a lot bye Daniele cv_turi_daniele_eng.pdf
