  • About
    I am a boom operator working all along the west coast. I've mostly worked on low-budget indie features as a boom op, and have mixed on a few shorts. I'm from Seattle, Washington but am based out of Portland, Oregon and done some feature work in the LA area as well. Always looking for more experience.
  • Interested in Sound for Picture

  1. One of the mixers I work with told me golfing gloves are great for booming... I didn't try them because I don't like experimenting too much with gear on features and my hands are already rather silent. Anyone else have any experience with these?
  2. I love this. Dimensions/specs?
  3. This looks really lazy... But then again, it's also comedic genius.
  4. ..... you wore that thing on your head??
  5. RE: "Furry" Lol. Choose your wording with care: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Furry_fandom Especially on the internuts.
  6. Haha! Right on. I'll definitely post about what I get in the mail. Basically, right after I finalized the PayPal transaction, I stumbled across some comment on another site about how there are Chinese knockoffs of the 416 and to be careful. Immediate doubt, slight panic.
  7. When a superior chews me out for something I couldn't help and then leaves the room.
  8. I think the reason why it was brought up is because of the "stay in your department" mentality. If you're a camera guy, do that. If you're a sound guy, do that. Doing both is a compromise of interests and quality. If you're willing to spend more money on sound, spend that money on hiring a kickass sound guy who already knows which gear will work the best for each gig. That way you can focus on camera and s/he can focus on sound. I haven't really followed many of your posts though, so my apologies if I'm misinterpreting how you operate.
  9. I've only had an ME66 up until now. I just bought this as a Christmas present to myself. I thought it was a relatively good deal. Thought I'd check in here to see if I made any major mistakes lol. Pretty sure it's solid though. Used Sennheiser MKH416 for $600 http://www.ebay.com/itm/291035705734
  10. I find it hilarious how beer/alcohol is so aptly described using audio terms. I love In Flames. I want to go to Sweden almost entirely because of the music from over there. But now I also have this beer as additional incentive. But Anders Friden wasn't the first... http://firstwefeast.com/drink/headbangers-brew-a-history-of-heavy-metal-and-craft-beer-collaborations/ I was totally gonna post this one... but you beat me to it. I laughed so hard when I saw this.
