"Sound Speeds" vlog

Recommended Posts

On the weekend I was involved with NZ's biggest film event: 48HOURS 

(During which teams of people make an entire short film from scratch in just 48hrs: https://www.48hours.co.nz )

 

 

 

Q: What is better than being on a 48Hours Team? 
A: Being on *TWO* teams at once!

 

As I worked late through the night and barely slept... But by my own choice, because I'm certifiably insane! As after we wrapped I then went and joined another team to do their sound through the night....

 

 

 

I must be mad. 

 

 

 

Then after a very late finish last night with the other team, I got up early in the morning to help on sound post for my main team for 48Hours! But it is all worth it in the end, and we got a great film in on time.

Had a battle with a generator! The machine won this round. Oh well.

Did something very different last weekend, attempted to play at being a "DoP" instead for a shoot as part of a feature film. 

Meant I couldn't do sound though :-/ 


 

 

 

However I feel all in all the shoot went very well! :-)

What name do you use on IMDB ?

I need to fix that up!  People have been randomly adding/creating profiles for me on projects, so I think my credits are scattered across a handful of them on IMDB!

It's like hanging out on location with Ironfilm. Thanks David. 

Cheers! I love sharing. 
And I'm sure it will be interesting for me as a way to look back at my progress over the years. 
Plus it gets discussions going, I've certainly learnt stuff from commentators on my videos pointing out things I wouldn't have thought of at the time. 

 

My latest few uploads are about my new Zoom F8n acquisition (the only one in all of New Zealand!):

Right angle connectors (be it lemo, hirose, or whatever) has been the theme of my week. Have it when I don't want it, don't have it when I want it.
 


The start of my adventures with right angle connectors began a week ago:
 

 

My other updates are about my sound cart build:


 
 

 

 


 
Been busy on other projects this week as well:

I never seem to share anything I've worked on which I did the sound for, so for a change, here is something I just got notified about. A doco about Speedway Racing:

I enjoyed being part of making it! My family is also from the same general region we filmed in, and my Uncle and Father were also into motorsports in a big way too.
