Over the last three decades, I have served as both a Camera Operator on various shoots in San Diego and as a Video Editor. It is good to have experience in both realms because as an Editor you know what to shoot, and as a Shooter you keep in mind all the shots that the Editor will want. “Tape is cheap” is an adage popular during the digital tape days meaning that the camera operator shouldn’t feel constrained about shooting a lot of footage. Strive to be the camera op whose every clip is usable.
Filming is a two way street: you’re not only capturing an image, but you’re also recording dialogue, background noise or some other type of audio that helps to bring your visuals to life.
DPA Microphones is delighted to have played a key part in capturing the sound for this high octane movie. Award-winning Production Sound Mixer Ben Osmo chose the company's d:screet™ 4063 Miniature Microphones with low sensitivity and low voltage to record dialogue during the shooting of action scenes that involved fast, furious and bumpy chases across the Namibian desert. He also used DPA d:screet 4062 Miniature Microphones with extra low sensitivity for cabled recordings of various vehicles, and these were held firm inside each vehicle by DPA magnet mounts.
MegaBots uses cutting-edge robotics technology to create giant 16-foot-tall, internally-piloted humanoid robots. Two years ago, MegaBots challenged Japanese robotics company Suidobashi Heavy Industry to a giant robot duel, and the Japanese team accepted the challenge.

Have you ever had to suffer through a dry, stale educational video that bored you to tears or made you want to pull out your hair? Such videos are common elements of many corporations’ onboarding and regulatory compliance programs, so they’re not going away anytime soon. For video content producers, there’s a real opportunity to transform such pieces-to generate enthusiasm instead of eye rolls at the mention of the term “online training courses.” The real challenge is producing something that doesn’t just convey the information, but also keeps viewers genuinely engaged, smiling, and clicking for more. It takes a special knack. For more on this special touch, we interviewed A. Troy Thomas, President and Owner of Inertia Films.
In our age of software animation, people tend to get excited about tools, but forget to pay attention to the key elements and their work ends up not looking professional. The main purpose of sharing my knowledge today is to help change the mindset of how people animate.
Recording excellent field audio is not a mystery. It's achieved through proper planning and execution of the sound parameters you decided on before the actual production starts. That said, getting the right audio gear for the field is an important part of the production process.

Most recently Parke did the full post-production and DI for Linklater’s latest film, "Boyhood."
