    I am an LA based sound mixer coming from a live sound background. I have worn many hats during my career and really love location work the best. I am available for any type of project and enjoy a challenge. I have relocated to LA from San Francisco and Portland and have been doing features as a mixer and boom op.

  1. +1 on the Bose Soundlink Mini, I use it on the cart, in the car, at home, or with a Comtek strapped to it to put anywhere needed. it is a little bassy but perfect for casual listening. Also +1 on the KRK Rokit 5. I have two sets that I picked up refurbished. They are a lot of bang for the buck and pretty flat considering the price. I use a set with a small sub in the living room for movie watching and it is usually too much! They are tough enough that I have used them for light duty music playback jobs and they were great! My $0.02
  2. This issue has a good write up about the Sharknado strike.
  3. So this is what I eventually came up with to mount my BlackMagic SmartView monitor to my upright Magliner cart. The mount uses two swiveling brackets that came off of a pair of boom holder cups from Backstage carts. (The brackets might be able to be ordered separately.) I drilled through the shell and installed machine screws from inside the case. There is lots of room inside for mounting ideas. I removed the bezel and decided I liked it off better. This is really lightweight and small and can be mounted at any height.
  4. Hello John, That is a really nice cart. Great work! I am inspired to modify mine in a similar fashion. Alistair
  5. The crew of Sharknado 3 is currently in the process of organizing the production with the support of Local 695 and other IA representatives. Please show your support by joining us tomorrow morning either at Blue Cloud movie ranch 20000 Blue Cloud Road, Santa Clarita, CA 91390 or at the production company offices at 72 E. Palm Avenue Burbank California 91502 Alistair
  6. Maybe not insane but your country and UPS/BH Photo are ripping you off.
  7. Thats insane, I had no idea that would be so expensive. Makes me feel fortunate to live where I can get these things locally.
  8. They ship to everywhere except Iran, Syria and a few other countries they don't like. They like Cyprus! Whats not to like! I'm sure that shipping charges are part of the package when buying pro gear in Cyprus. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/49510-REG/Sony_MDR_7506_MDR_7506_Headphone.html
  9. What are some clever and small footprint mounting solutions for the Blackmagic dual monitors? I know that Malcolm Davies has a cool one that his company makes, wondering what else people have found for it.
  10. C'mon guys chill out! Most of us come here to read and discuss matters of interest to sound professionals. When one person attacks another over a difference of opinion the conversation grinds to a halt and all that is left is insults. I believe everyone on this forum owes it to the rest of the people here to keep the conversation civil and professional. It shouldn't be someones personal plaything that is used to debase the opinions of others, and offer useless criticisms. It's unfair to all of us and disrespectful to our host and is a real drag to see happening on this forum. -Alistair
  11. With due respect your former employer sounds like an asshat. You have made a good move to get out from under that kind of derision. Im sure you will look back on this and smile knowing what a good move it was for you.
