    Viviana or Ursa?

    i too am a supporter of hard work and innovation. That is why I will only buy URSA straps.

    Sewing Lavs into Wardrobe

    The best advice I can give is to make contact with the Costume department as early as possible in pre production and work collaboratively with them. As always, discuss “performance” and not “sound”.

    Ursa Strap

    We have been using URSA's for a couple of years now, giving feedback from the prototype R&D period. I have completely replaced my whole belt and pouch inventory with URSA's after more than three A list actresses asked to keep their URSA thigh straps at the end of different shows. We have found that as soon as we demo the URSA straps to the Costume dept in pre production any fears they had about my team rigging difficult costumes evaporate and we encounter a lot of goodwill between costume and sound.

    23.98 camera speed

    Hi everyone, I am about to start a movie shooting on Red Weapons and Editorial have asked the camera to shoot at 23.98 i have not worked on a film for over 10 years that wasn't shot at 24fps. Can done of the members here who work on feature films let me know what the current conventions for sound timecode frame rates and sample rates are for 23.98 picture speed in modern times? Sound would provide master timecode for camera. thanks.
