To all LA Sound Mixers, My name is Thomas Snodgrass and I'm trying to break into the location sound biz I've been doing small freelance gigs here and there while working full time in a restaurant. I own a 633, MKH-50 and 60 but rent all of my wireless etc for my gigs. If you ever need a good boom op or utility I'd love to be added to your list. I have an audio engineering degree and years of experience with all types of audio equipment. Also, if you ever just need a little "pro bono" help or are willing to let someone tag along and pick your brain, I'd love the opportunity. Thanks! -Thomas-
So I've talked with several pros in the industry and they've all told me the same thing, film school is a waste, go learn from experience. So hey, that's what I've been doing. I am at a point thought where the experience I am getting isn't what I need so I'm looking to apprentice with one, or three, mixers so I can learn and get more hands-on experience with someone who knows what they're doing. So, a little about me. My name is Amanda. In only a little over a year I have worked over 25 productions. I love working in film and take pride in doing it well. Every job is different but I can quickly adapt to provide an excellent quality product every time no matter what job I am doing. I am a hard worker, very passionate about working in the industry, and I learn quickly. I have a positive attitude and an inquisitive nature. I have 8 years experience between both Theatre and Film. I have worked Sound, Art Department, Production Assistant, Grip and even a little camera work. My real passion is for Sound though. Everything I know I have learned with hands-on experience and several instruction manuals. The first time I saw and touched sound gear for film it was handed to me in 2 cases and I was told to have it up and running in 30 minutes. Needless to say after much fumbling with buttons and menus and re-working of plugs I got it and things went from there. I have a basic understanding of sound for film but I want to learn more and I think working with a professional will help greatly. I'm not totally green so you wouldn't be taking on someone with no idea what they're doing or even which end of a boom pole the microphone goes on. My resume is attached. Thank you for your time.

Hey guys This is my first step into the sound and recording industry, having studied it for years at college I want to pursue a career within it. I am currently in London, England and want to be taken under someone's wing or given the right opportunities to be able to get where I want. If anyone has any opportunities or links into the media world it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Hey there, It's down-time at my usual workplace and I'd love to finally take the opportunity to get to work with some of you maestros. If I may, I'd like to contribute with two pair of extra hands in return for... just that: the experience. About. I get along with everyone, and find it almost impossible to dislike anyone. On top of that, I'm a strong believer in good work ethics, and I carry around a positive attitude towards the day, the night, the hours, the work, the set, and the crew. Experience. I've worked as the sole sound recorder on a few infomercials, as well as the odd low-budget independent short film here and there. However, I have looots to learn. I've never worked with experienced location sound recorders. During most of 2011-2012 (my first year out of Uni), I've been working as a backup Technician on different shows on CBC Radio (News, Current Affairs, and Arts and Entertainment). And my work weeks have varied from 7 days a week to 0 days a week. Website: http://www.nimashams.com Please don't hesitate to send me a note for more (résumé, references, etc.)...
