    Sneak peak of the Zaxcom TRXLA protective case prototype

    Thank you for the compliments. It's def a big risk, as the mold can become very pricy! But it was a great process and love to problem solve, so yes, I hope the product will do what it"s supposed to: protect! "It's a pity you discontinued, wandering Ear! People miss your product!"
  2. Thank you for watching. coming soon. www.soundcases.nyc easy_case.MOV Intro.MOV set-up.MOV zaxcom_clip.MOV

    Filming in a car with the windows down.

    Yayyyy for the grips!! A cold six-pack gets miracles done... he he he. Some add-on thoughts (not really window related): Depending the camera angles, the DPA goosenecks (with good windscreens) have been very kind when you have to drive with seatbelts on or can't get a proper wire on the actor (with overcovers) because of other reasons. Place it in visor or cup holder and aim it at the sweet spot. Tuck transmitter in there as well, but if you can't: Some cars have non-sticky surfaces ('good luck' with any type of tape or even sticky joe...) 2" T-pins might be your best friends to hold things in place. (Make a surface around the cub mic/transmitter/cable by using paper-tape (and cardboard if necessary) to pin the pins through and pin it in ceiling fabric, pulling the cable towards the door (depending on camera angle), where you can continue in the door's rubber trim to get your cable to your transmitter/recorder. If you can't hardwire your mics, make sure your transmitters are as high as possible to prevent drop outs.

  5. Good Morning, handsome Sound Sorcerers, I hope this day finds you well. After re-organizing my gear, buffed all my cables, polished my utility belt, cue-tipped all fine mechanics, read every book and manual, I’m reaeaeaeally ready to get back to work! I moved from Atlanta (Work-Mecca) to NY to be close to my loved one and although I’m on the available list at the Local 52, I think I have to spread the word a little more: I’m a smart & hard-working female, who worked non-stop for big production studios, to do Production Sound on shows like A Walk In the Woods, (we won an Emmy award for the) tv-movie Bessie, Let’s Be Cops, Bolden and several TV-series. IMDB Maaike Snoep http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2295012/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1 I love to work in a team with a professional attitude and not afraid to roll up my sleeves to deliver best quality production sound. If actual production sound work is not available, I’m happy to clean stacks of Pelican cases, buff miles of cables, test tons of batteries, redo all your p-touch labels and get your coffee, all with a BIG smile on my face Thank you for taking the time to read this. Very much appreciated. Maaike Snoep, (213)304-6793, In good standing union member, living in Brooklyn with car and gear. (willing to travel as far as it takes) Have a great day!
