  1. Michael, Let me know how it goes and who you’ve been working with. This is Tyler Blythe btw. Not it sure if it makes a difference but the job offer my fiancée got is with the Canadian government.
  2. Once my soon to be wife gains full residency with her new job, wouldn’t that then make me a Canadian citizen?
  3. Hi Folks, My fiancee recently received a job offer in Vancouver that would give her permanent Canadian residency thus we are considering making the move. I'm wondering if I (a US citizen) would then be eligible to work on productions that shoot in Canada? I'm currently a 695 & 479 member but is there an IATSE local I would have to join there? Any info would be greatly appreciated!
  4. Hey guys, My fiancee was recently offered a job with Apple in Austin, TX and we're considering making the move from NC at the end of next month. With that said, I've been scrambling to do as much research as possible before we make our decision. Was wondering if any of you out there live in the Austin area or know much about it's film industry? Do most productions hire local crew or do they primarily bring in LA mixers? How are the incentives? Do many of the productions shot in TX hire local mixers or just bring in LA or NY mixers? How's the commercial market? I'm thinking long a
  5. Thanks for all the responses. Unfortunately, I believe it's the bnc to 1/4 I'm trying to use. After switching the slate to the "run" mode, I'm no longer getting the rEAd error and the slate is set to the right frame rate but it just isn't jamming automatically to the 664's TC like it should. It keeps starting at 00:58:30:01 everytime. I'm guessing the cable I'm using is just wired the wrong direction.
  6. Read both the 664 manual as well as the Denecke manual and checking the 664 forums, the Denecke site, watching their "how to use video" too and yet...still no luck. Thus, why I'm asking here.
  7. Hi guys, I have a shoot coming up and the production wants to use the Denecke TS-3 smart slate and I'm trying to jam it using my Sound Devices 664 but I'm have issues. I've used the TS-C slate before and jammed using a lemo cable and everything worked great but this is the first time I've used the TS-3. I've set the TS-3's slate rotary knob to 23 frames per second and put it in the read mode but when I power cycle it trying to jam from my 664 the screen just goes blank after it says rEAd. I have a feeling it has to do with my settings on the 664 which I have set to: Syn
  8. Hey guys, I'm having to turn down a day gig with ABC news shooting in Kelly, NC which is about an hour outside of Wilmington, NC because I was just offered a spot on a feature. Pay is pretty decent but you must have your own gear with at least two wireless plus a boom. If there's anyone in the Wilmington area who would want the work I can pass your info along to the producer. Feel free to e-mail me at tblythe.sound@gmail.com if interested.
  9. Has anyone here ordered their 664 from Trew Audio and already received it? I placed my order back on September 14 from the Nashville store and they have yet to give me a real estimate of when I might get it. Last time I called them they couldn't even find my order/name on their list but said given the date I ordered I "might" get it in December or January. I realize it's first come first serve but to not be able to even find my order/name on their list or even tell me what number I am on the list...I'm pretty disappointed with the customer service. Especially when it's with such an e
  10. I've been an avid reader of this forum ever since discovering it a few months ago and wanted to throw out this question I've personally been struggling with... What is the best approach for the new generation of want to be sound mixers to learn and break into the industry? I've gone through countless threads in which many of you are rightfully frustrated by the slew of young guns buying our own equipment and taking low paying gigs just for the experience & connections hoping to be able to afford rent at the end of the month. I completely understand the frustration and damage that a
