    Tonmeister App in the Appstore

    Hi Timo. Sorry for never answering. Still can't get it to work, everything is on the latest version, ios, Adobe, tonmeister. The only way around is sending myself an email, but if I have no internet is no use. Can you help please!
  2. If you mixed the film, technically you own the rights to the recordings until they pay you and clear the contract, unless your contract says otherwise. So take those recording as ransom until they pay. If they release the movie without paying you, than is copyright bridge

    Tonmeister App in the Appstore

    Hi, working with the app at the moment. It is great but have a problem. When I go to share the report, I have various options but the only one that works is to Mail. If I want to open it on Adobe reader to save it locally, I have the option but when I press it nothing happens. Any idea what is happening?

    Movie Slate question

    Hi Jeff, you can use one of this http://www.kingston.com/us/wireless/wireless_readers#mlw221 and plug the final card and put the report on it or a separate SD card.

    Just use AA they last forever in this units, don't complicate your life
  6. It happens here in the UK too, but again on small jobs and not on commercials... although there are some individuals around. As a rule i tell producers: If camera has at least one assistant, so will I.

    "Gone Girl" ADR

    Can you really tell it was 2 frames, and not 1 or 3 or 2.5 out? Can you just say 'it felt a bit off'?

    Interesting Camera "Boom" Device : Rodcam

    maybe the tiny mic from ambient, could work well for a big stereo rig

    Best lav as plant mic

    I sometimes use a DPA 4060 as a plant. They sound great and do have enough bass to play with. Remember there are some small DPAs that are created for instruments with a BIG frequency range, thus giving you a more rounded response without the tweak for dialogue. Also, you can get the BLM6000 adapter from DPA, and convert it into a very flat boundary (as per Larry's post) very quickly and effectively. Also because it is rubber, it stops all does annoying mechanical noises that you get when mounting on a table or similar surface.

    Rycote Cyclone

    Rado: You can buy a cinela, a rode, a K-tek and a rycote windshield. All very different in prices and quality. Hardly a monopoly.

    Managing audio gear at Burning Man

    One thing I did in the Qatar desert was to cling film my gear. Wrap it all' membrane switches work fine, and you can remove rotary faders, wrap and then reattach . Doesn't look pretty but keeps dust off

    USA do I need working permit?

    Hi Dennis. You do need a visa 100%, coming from any country of the EU and UK. The visa free agreement is only for tourism and business, but working is not business. Careful with the journalist visa, it allows you to work only "if the material being filmed will be used to disseminate information or news". You might need another type of visa. check this page http://london.usembassy.gov/niv/media2.html Good luck

    6 new Ambient products

    Timo, if waiting means a better, more complete and more future proof product, we are happy to wait. Thanks for the update

    camera on 50 fps, audio 25?

    The best thing to do, if running dialogue, is to get them to do a slate clap, like in the old times. That way if they decide to ramp back to 25 the clip, or a bit of it, they can sync the audio back with the clap. Also, be aware that if they go suddenly back to 25, the camera will be out of sync, so re-jam. You might know this but just in case.
