    HHB Dat

    I'm selling my HHB Dat on eBay and found this article in with the box with the recorder I haven't opened since 1999.

    Two person crew

    Live and learn, there are no minimum staffing requirements in the IA contract. The IA can sign a one off contract with anything the Producer wants in it.
  3. Is there a way to get the Sound Report from the HD on a 788? When you create the report, it saves it to the HD and the CF card. When you back up the Folder on the HD with the report in it, it does not copy over the report to whatever your backing up to, or so it seems. It only copies the Report over the one time you create it to the CF card.
  4. The 2 person sound crew is making a comeback thanks to the International. "Comeback Trail" (no joke) staring Robert DeNiro, Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones is coming to New Mexico to start shooting next week. Producers have figured out they can come to NM and by-pass the ASA contract and sign "One Off's". Not only do they get reduced crew at reduced rates they also get the local rebates. There are eleven producers listed on iMDB, no downsizing there. This is the second time I know of a major production doing this. The other film was Hell or High Water. Now that the International has made this a standard for "One Off's " why would any other producer allow for more than a 2 person crew? Does anyone know of other departments that producers can restrict the number of crew? Is there anyone at 695 aware of this change in crew staffing? Concerned and pissed off that major film can get away this, who signs these contracts at the International? Frantically (spell check) and Sororally David Brownlow
  5. This is the quietest practical fire apparatus I have ever worked with. The flame is nearly completely silent. It belongs to Prop Master Randy Moore. The first time I worked with it was on Cosmos season 3. We had a scene with a line of fire pits that the host had to walk past. The flame was at least 2 - 3 feet high coming out of caldrons. Not a sound except for an occasional snap from the flame in the wind. Because the gas is allowed to come out of so many holes there is no pressure driving the flame causing the hissing sound.

    14 hour day

    Hello LA and NYC brothers and sisters there's a rumor going around out in here in the rain starved desert about the IA signing off on some sort of 14 hour day rule. Is this for 600 only or is it another overly optimistic hearsay. Is it April already? Cheers and good luck for a prosperous year.
  7. Has anyone tried any of the many external mics available for the iPhone 7 with the Lightning connector? I found a very simple audio recording app called VoiceRecorder. I like the Old School interface that looks like a cassette recorder. Do you have one that you use?

  10. I'm thinking of buying a couple of Zaxcom ZHD transmitters and a RX200 receiver. I would like to have the remote recording capability. Would anyone care to comment on their experience with this setup?
