With every new model of Red camera they seem to change the timecode inout connector. The Gemini is no exception with many functions share a single 9 pin Lemo connector. With the Gemini becoming a much more common camera we have added (3) of the Lemo 9 pin to our rental inventory along with timecode cables for every other RED and Arri camera. No matter what camera system your production is using we have the right tools and experience to help.
Last month I was on location in a small town outside of Montgomery AL bringing awareness to the lack of proper sewer systems and sanitation.
Like many fast pace shoots with many locations being fast/ agile is always important. For this shoot I used my rock solid Sound Devices 833 mixer recorder running active Noise Asst plug in. Along with Lectrosonics SRC/ SMWB wireless and a Schoeps Mini CMIT on the boom. For all these uncontrolled shoots Noise Asst has really become a game changer in improving what I deliver to my clients. The story is below.
Working as a Location Sound Mixer in Charleston SC means I work on many different types of productions with one of the most common being the high end multi camera interview. In this story for CBS we did a five camera interview trying to provide production with many different angles to cover this important story.
Since the start of COVID I have done countless COVID hospital stories this one was the most impactful since it was told through the unique point of view of a photo journalist/ nurse. The best part of this job is being able to tell stories like this. You can watch it below. If you need a Location Sound Mixer in Charleston SC, Columbia SC or Savannah GA please contact us.
We want to wish all our clients and friends a Happy New Year! 2022 is already off to a great start with jobs in Columbia SC, Charleston SC and Brunswick GA.
Last week we were working with CBS News down in Brunswick GA covering the sentencing phase of a trial. With warmer then normal weather and great crew we delivered great sound as always.
This job was a last minute booking that is not the standard dialogue recording job I usually do. However being a Location Sound Mixer means being prepared for anything that might happen. We recorded the singing and guitar playing live while in one continuous take for the music video below. Due to unscripted nature of sound we used Lectrosonics SMWB wireless on each talent into a Sound Devices 633 due to lighting and high background noise no boom microphone was used. I used a Sanken COS-11 on the guitar player which is my go to lav microphone for most situations. However due to wardrobe on the singer I had to use a white Countryman B6 in collar of shirt which yielded great results despite its less then optimal placement.
These types of shoots are very challenging due to dynamic range if singer and guitar player but using my 20+ years of experience I was able to get it right the first time.
Below is the finished video with audio recorded on location.
