They used a Flyer quite a lot on my current gig. The Best Boy asked for some booming tips.

Between takes.

Cam Op "the flyer is in shoot"

Gaffer "yeah I'm resting my arms"

Me (hysterical laughter).

Maybe they were closer and now they're rowing away after the dialog? Cool photo either way!

Young Jimmy Eric?

New mount, so not young Jimmy. But I can see what you were thinking.

Probably Atlanta, given the source and the I20 sign.

Yeah, I figured it wasn't really him.  I just said it so that those who know Jimmy would get a smile. :)

I love my job! Part of the enjoyment of this career is tackling the challenges we face everyday. Capturing sound at Niagara Falls is a good example. Having the Director give a "shout out" to the sound team at the film premier is icing on the cake.

Found this whilst looking up music related items for Midnight Cowboy. IMDB lists the boom op as Robert Rogow.

Did that dolly really roll on a wooden boardwalk? How did this sound?

Most all dolly "track" was built on the day with wood. Metal tube-type track wasn't really in use much until mid-1970s as I recall. Usually the dolly move was quiet with the wooden track not adding anything we couldn't deal with.

Impressive! Those carpenters must have been great.

"Put down some boards!"  I remember it well.  And it gave the camera a lot more flexibility by not limiting the design of the dolly move to what can be built from sections of straight or curved track.

+1 to Laurence for remembering that phrase. Remember also, "let's make a dance floor" for the dolly.

How long before we have to explain what a dolly is ?
