  1. Hi all, I am a young mixer in my mid-20's and I would like to start a family within a few years. I would be interested in hearing any advice, regrets, or wisdom regarding balancing work and family life. My biggest concern is the long working days, and the inability to spend time with my family because of that. Any wise words or comments would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Chris Scott
  2. Watching this video led me down a whole other path of skiing videos. Here is a another really cool one from the same guy:
  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. Very nice looking set-up. How do you find the case? I've been contemplating something similar if I were to make a move from the bag. I also would like to know if that bungie cord is a permanent addition . -Chris
  5. I want to thank everyone for their posts and insight, but also redirect this thread. My original post was not in reference to the standard RED fan noise. The issue I was running into was a tonal whine, similar to that produced by an electronic HMI ballast. The whine was somewhere in the region of 5-6 khz. Hope this helps.
  6. Thanks Richard, this is some interesting information that had not come my way. I'll look into the Adaptive Preview Quiet mode.
  7. Hi all, This is my first topic post after a long while of lurking and a few replies. I'm glad I finally have something worth posting about! I worked on my first shoot using a RED Dragon this past weekend. (Location was a small New York apartment for reference.) The camera had the 2.0 fan installed. I agreed with the 1st AC to set the fans to 35% for recording, as that has always been a happy position on all the RED Epic shoots I have worked on. During recording I noticed an awful high pitch whine, not loud but not pleasant either. At first I thought it was the result of the electronic HMI ballasts being used. The next lighting setup used all tungsten units. The noise was still there. Then I thought it might be one of those "supersonic" bug deterrents, as I've had issues with those in the past. No bug deterrent. It bothered me the whole day. The next day of shooting we were using a C300. No whine. At this point I realized it must have been the Dragon. This is not something I've ever run into before with a camera from RED. Has anyone else experienced this? TL;DR: Has anyone heard a high pitch whine from the RED Dragon or RED fan 2.0? Cheers, Chris
  8. Has anyone done this with a case other than an im2750? I'm interested in the Pelican 1620 in particular.
