  1. Your client hates women that are ovulating.
  2. Possibly. I'm just not a guy that is inclined to worry about a problem that doesn't exist at the moment. I usually have a plan 'B' in my head but I don't see this imagined paranoia as a thing when we come out of this pandemic. Eventually we have to return to operating as humans again.
  3. A lot to do about nothing if you ask me. The problem doesn't exist so why worry about it? You're still working?
  4. WTF?? Are you guys shoving your lavs up your ass and then trying to put them on actors? Just put them on normally or give them to the wardrobe person to help. Are you thinking in the future that no one can be near anyone when you make films? Love scenes are going to be weird to shoot.
  5. Mine has a reservoir tip and is ribbed for pleasure.
  6. Yes that mic will work in a bedroom. It will also work in a kitchen, a living room, a hallway, a bathroom, outside, inside and in a car, even in the dark or sunlight. The only place it may not work is underwater.
  7. The Lectro IFB do sound much better than Comteks, however, another downside is that the battery will only last until lunch. Re-batterying them at lunch is a huge PITA. Hunting them down is the worst part. Comteks last all day on the same 9v.
  8. Let me answer your question with a question. In a shoot, how many scene 32 take 3's are there?
  9. What's the big hub-bub? If camera wants to call it something different, that's on them. Just call it what the script sup. calls it. Step away from the drama. On a side note: I never slate or note that it's a pick up. There is only one scene4 take6. The editors have the note from script and camera. The timecode will marry the sound to pic and my voice slate is in the garbage at that point. There won't be less sound than picture for them to wonder about. It's pointless for sound to make the effort to note pick ups. Old days of mag stripe, yes, note it. Nowadays, useless.

    Wait, you didn't have to fast forward them and then rewind to put a fresh wrap on the spools? Holy crap, I could have saved myself a lot of time knowing that wasn't a necessary step. Now I feel like an idiot!
  11. Talked to the SD guys at Trewapalooza this weekend and asked them about the discontinuation of the CL-12. They said that they had to drop something to concentrate on the new scorpio control surface. They said they will still service the CL-12 just not make them anymore. I asked if the new control panel would be backwards compatable with the 6 series. The said likely not. I think its a bad idea for them to drop this product. Makes me wish I had never bought a SD 688 last year. Maybe I'll look into Cantar.
  12. I'm not licensed and have never had anyone remotely care about licensing check me out. It's a non-issue in this business. As far as protecting air space because you have a license? Phhst, bitch please, never going to happen.
  13. The real question is, "Did it die because of water damage in the past". Water damage is not normal wear and tear. I've even had production buy me a new transmitter because the sets were so hot causing the actress to sweat so profusely that her sweat permeated the control touch pads and corroded the circuit board of the SMA. Lectrosonics confirmed that was the cause of death and that those blister button control pads are susceptible to sweat. She wore it on her bra strap antenna down which put the SMA control pad next to her skin.
