On Location: Multi Cam Interview

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.

On Location: Live Music Video

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.

On Location: Francis Roper Charleston SC

We were grateful to be hired to work on the Roper Saint Francis 2030 commercial/ launch video. This shoot had many challenges including working on an active street corner during the morning rush hour in Downtown Charleston SC and having to quickly mic up many different medical professionals in a short amount of time.

Using our Sound Devices 833 Recorder along with Noise Asst active noise reduction helped us to minimize traffic noise. We also employed our Lectrosonics SRC wireless and Schoeps mini cmit to give post production as many options as possible.

On Location Podcast Recording

Podcasts have become more popular the last few years especially hybrid shoots that are a video interview along with gathering the audio for the pod cast. These shoots need extra attention and consideration paid to the quality of the audio recording since podcast listens expect studio quality audio even when not in a studio. To add more complication to this is having to record most interviews outside due to COVID restriction making noise control even more difficult. However On Location Podcast Recording with high quality is possible.

The most important to control background noise I did this by running the Noise Assist active noise reduction on my Sound Devices 833 recorder. I then chose a high quality microphone to record with my go to microphone for dialogue is always a Schoeps CMC/ MK 41 nothing is better. You can listen below to the results all the location interviews were recorded with way with interviewer inside his podcast studio.
