  • About
    i live and work in beautiful Vancouver, BC. <br />
    <br />
    I'm an IATSE 891 sound mixer, former sound assistant and sometimes boom op (over 10 plus years...or so the pin says) mostly doing low budget tv movies, independant features as well as the occasional 2nd unit on bigger budget series and features when i can get it. Reccomendations are always appreciated!!<br />
    <br />
    One day i hope to make the jump to doing features and TV full time. <br />
    <br />
    I also teach "the basics" of location sound at Capilano University and the Arts Institute of Vancouver part-time to pay the rent when film work is inconsistant (which is of course all the time!)

Sometimes in cars this is great, or interiors but wider shots it does tend to be thin which may or may not work for you in the scene. I remember using this mic on an scene with cops and a victim outside in a backyard that had a beautiful forest that on the otherside was a busy highway road, the mk41s seemed to have the best background noise an
