  1. A great loss to this community for sure. I sent a lot of items to him over the years for repair and he was always a phone call away for my boneheaded questions. I do have to say that he had been ailing for some time and I was unable to get answers from him over the whereabouts of some repairs that he had done. He proudly insisted on not shipping until he had built the custom cables I asked for. Even after I said the customs were no big deal, he claimed he would get to them. He never did and the repairs never shipped. It was probably last fall that I last messaged him with no answer, yet 2 or 3 weeks ago, the story of not having something on a gig because it was somewhere in Ft. Lauderdale was still entertaining a new and different crew! He was a great man and resource, truly. If anyone thinks my little box of cables and mic repairs still exist somewhere, I'm all ears. RIP Eric.
  2. Job is in Christoval, TX south of San Angelo March 30,31 Low budget, low pressure gig. Some or all gear can be provided. Contact me here or hugh@2seedelight.tv
  3. It's funny that I opened this thread and the banner ad was for the Moze Gear Tig Q28. I own 2 and although I have not used on DSLR they were built with them in mind. Audio input via 3.5mm and the unit will spit out a stereo 3.5mm signal with audio in 1 channel, TC in the other. Scratch and TC for post. Viola!
  4. How about an app that converts CVS files to Rite Aid, Duane Reade or Walgreen format in a batch? Maybe you need a doctor to write that script
  5. It's great how he hands the money to some kid as he walks away!
  6. Of all the silly requests I've seen, this has got to be the dumbest post! Hi, We are looking for a gaffer to join the crew of our romantic drama short film. You will also be operating the boom mic.
  7. Seeing all these great booming photos makes me resent even more the words "Just throw a lav on 'em". I especially love the shots with 2 or 3 booms on a scene. That must be what heaven looks like! In an interview recently the producer stated on his film every speaking actor would be lav'd. I asked him why he would make such a sweeping declaration and he said, "So we can hear them". My reply was, "That's what a good boom op is for" and further, "as a mixer I reserve the right to use wires when and where necessary." I did not get the job. :-)
  8. I keep reading the SSD are designed for write once, read many type applications like OS boot drives and that life span is compromised in a field recorder type use? I was looking into putting one in my 744 but couldn't be convinced of great advantages. Can anyone with experience chime in?
  9. Sprinkles Robert? Sounds like you're getting a lot of ice cream gigs! SWEET!
  10. @ChrisNewton This machine still records and plays back. In the photo above they were placing aluminum foil over the cylinder which the demonstrator will use to record her shouting (these units are not very sensitive so yelling would help move the element better). This would then be played back through the same horn. Very similar to the photo Gandy Moon provided but a lot shorter horn. I suppose it's pretty difficult to "wow" a crowd holding smartphones anymore but as a soundie I had to appreciate where sound and picture both came from.
  11. Near Detroit is a museum that contains much from Thomas Edison, including his actual Menlo Park Laboratory that was shipped here by Henry Ford (along with New Jersey soil for it to sit on, at Edison's request) On a recent shoot there I took my Sound Devices kit to meet it's Great Great Great Grandfather!
