Dear Filmmaker,
I'm a "union-eligible" sound man with the experience of hundreds of shoots, responding to your ad for your shoot.
I have all my own gear and you will hear everything recorded cleanly and clearly!
I use the Schoeps CMIT 5 shotgun mic, and a set of the Sennheiser G4 lavs,
the Zoom F8 recorder, the Ambient Nano Lockit time code boxes for at least 2 nice cameras that support timecode, and the Ambient timecode LockItSlate.
I can provide up to 4 headset receivers to give you and a few other people a scratch boom track to listen in on.
You will get 2 folders with both polywaves and grouped tracks.
Once we are done shooting, I can provide a USB cable to copy over the recorded audio onto your DIT system.
My gear is compact but very effective as a great many of my repeat clients can attest to!
In addition to the above gear listed I am willing to rent anything you may also want to use to make the most of our time and effort!
I will research the price of any additional gear and we can discuss the pros and cons of it’s value and decide whether to use it or not.
I can record “wild lines” wherever possible for the best takes, as well as various foley
effects to enhance the sound of a scene.
I can also record voiceovers and ADR re-recordings in Pro Tools DAW, and any other special events that require audio production.
I am a problem solver for a wide variety of sound issues on set and I always champion the Director and defer to his judgment.
That said if I see an audio problem I will let you know as soon as possible so we can make the necessary adjustments.
I’m easy going and I know how to make the actors feel comfortable but I always keep it on a professional level so that I can get the audio recording needed for the scene.
I've been working in Production Audio since 2000 and I have also mixed live events of all kinds since 1987!

Here’s a small write-up about me in the Santa Barbara Independent, under the tab of “Santa Barbara’s Unique Gigs”:

My love of audio recording comes from my experience as pro musician and engineer where we learn about all the mics and their uses instead of being trained on how to use these mics, along with how to maximize their potential.
I use my equipment based on my own experience over many shoots and I can react to anomalies in the filming
process or any audio problems, on the fly, with little or no down time!
I am highly tech savvy, and and can be versatile whether it’s recording a key note
speech, a virtual 360 shoot, a classroom recording or a live performance recording,
I cross over between music and film very regularly.
I'm Vaccinated with the Johnson and Johnson vaccine as of April of 2021.

I offer a range of fee schedules for various uses for a custom quote based on your production needs.
Based on what kind of camera, number of actors (lavs needed), and other necessities and requirements.
Please give me a call (818) 203-8062
