Potential Gig | Advice for a Green Sound Fella
michaelhrtmn4 posted a topic in General DiscussionHey everyone! First off let me just say, reading all of your posts and comments to different people, wether just giving advice or answering questions, is super encouraging to someone who is new(ish) like I am. I just graduated from my university where I specialized in sound, post and production getting the opportunity to be the mixer on a small but professional feature, as well as now working on multiple short films. Post is where my passion is, but I love doing production sound whenever I can. I have some gear of my own, like my Mix-Pre 6, one super-cardioid mic from Audix, a boom pole, and some minor accessories, but I constantly feel like I can’t compare to some of you all who are just slinging huge bags and super cool toys. Obviously I will get there in time, but that is where my main question for this post stems from. I got a call from someone who is looking for a Sound Mixer for his production and it seems pretty legitimate. I’m just curious and asking for any advice you all have for someone who is just starting out but already has “some” relative experience. I sometimes just feel like if I had “x, y, z” then my confidence in doing the job I know how to do will increase. But considering I don’t know the in’s and out’s of renting gear, explaining what I have, renting kit from vendors and letting that be a kit- I just haven’t a clue how to proceed forward and which direction to move in. I feel stuck: how do I break into an industry or field without the gear that seems required to do so? Thank you to anyone who responds to this post. Appreciate it, everyone!
Kitsplit: a New Rental House Business ModelJust spent more than a few minutes reading the TOS for Kitsplit, an interesting site that aspires to hook up kit owners and those who need kit. Is this potentially a game changer for rentals? https://marketplace.kitsplit.com/ You can't get "in" to the site without first registering and confirming email, but you can get to TOS that appear to address all manner of potential horrible situations. Up to $10K insurance is included. Gonna watch this unfold.
