Dennis Maitland: Nobody Tells Sound What to Do

I never met Dennis, but I met his son Tod Maitland (also a highly decorated mixer)

If my headphones are on

I can't hear you

just about every time I'm working at a public/news event (usually for network news ) someone walks up to me (the only person with headphones on in the group) and ask "what station you guys with?" and then tries to have a conversation with me.......it ceases to amaze me....

Too much print for a shirt but the other day I am on a gig

Following the camera man and producer and someone shouts out

" Ha the sound guy is always the old guy "

Really struck me as funny and mostly true

Tom Maloney

That's because it takes years of experience to get years of experience.

Here is one that runs around the net lately...

I'd have this printed up poster size and put it on my sound cart.

From a recent conversation I had with a producer:

That's not a Sound problem...

it's a location problem.

I think it's Eric Toline here..

A cam op once told me he worked with a sound mixer that had a T-shirt that said,"Place Key Light Here!" It might have been a boom op that was wearing.

I read the whole thread to see if anybody missed this obvious one... I NEVER set up sound until lighting is 100%... and I still find the best spot to key :)

As a Walken fan... how about a cartoon walken talking head cam op looking over asking if you're sending the right tone?
