  1. Hello! I had a question. I'm on a UCLA shoot and they have these lavs and I really like them, I've attached a picture, the wind screen doesn't come off as their cage glued them on. But the element is very small and it has a mechanism that can be put on a sennheiser g3. Any ideas as to what it is? I want to say it's a countryman but I'm not sure.
  2. Short version (if you don't have time to read the whole thing): I've been looking at the threads on lavs, and one thing I don't see discussed is which lavs are well-suited to mount to talents as fast as possible, with as little consequence as possible? (eg. as little trial and error as possible before I can get rid of muffled audio, clothing rustle, etc.). I will need to look at the following: - Accessories that will work wonders with the mic in question (eg. COS-11 Vampire clip). - Flat vs. other versions? - Cable noise? My budget is unlimited (since the most expensive lavs I know aren't more than $600-700). Background info (If you have an extra minute): I'm still pretty inexperienced, and have only used the COS-11, Trams, and some larger Sony ones (all of which were mostly impossible when it came to clothing noise! The only place I could get them working is in the middle of women's chest, if they had larger chests.). I will always, always boom as well, but I rarely know what the interviewee will wear beforehand, and I rarely know their body type, whether they have body hair or not, etc. Usually, I find out the details on the spot 10-20 minutes before we have to shoot. I'm gonna try to wear the worse possible fabric I have and go try some lavs out at the store, and/or rent a couple. I'm thinking about trying the following: - Tram -- I've tried it, and I may have been lucky on that shoot, but it worked really well! -- Some pretty good advice were given on mounting the Tram in the book Location Audio Simplified - COS-11 -- I've already tried it, and it took me ages to get it right, and with some of the talents I was taking too long so I was asked to just boom (but I didn't have the VCLIP and didn't know about it either. - EMW - B6 - DPA 4060 and 4061 (if they have them in store) - Any other recommendations? Note: I know the question/scenario is stupid, and I know that if I was more experienced I may have been able to get any lav to work with anybody. But I'm not, so if you find this thread stupid, please ignore it (and let it die), if you choose to answer, I will appreciate it.
  3. Has anyone worked with Daniel Day-Lewis?...it seems in most of at least later films he has a specific mic technique...the sound of his breath etc...which is of course very convincing and is all part of his total package etc. If you have worked with him does he or can he request a certain mic technique? Has anyone encountered a high profile actor whose contract states some sort of micing technique or mic usage? Of course many musicians I have worked with have very specific mic and eq recommendations if they don't know you as a mixer...wondered if anyone has encountered that with an actor...
  4. Does anyone know where I can purchase those little semi-clear plastic boxes that most sound guys have to store their lavs and the clips/holders/etc. They are hinged and open lengthwise into two halfs, One on side is a main compartment with a closeable plastic flap, and the other has about 6 individual closing sections as well. I asked the guys down at Coffey sound and they said they were made in China and the manufacturer has discontinued making them!!! Ugggh. They are perfect and I need a couple. Any help would be great! Thanks, John
