About Me

Note: Please email me at: tatajemusic@sbcglobal.net because there is a chance that i may not see your message through Production Hub.

Dear Filmmaker,
I'm a sound man with the experience of hundreds shoots responding to your ad in Production Hub for your
shoot. I have all my own gear and you will hear everything recorded cleanly and clearly!
I use the Sennheiser MKH 416 shotgun mic which is the industry standard and go to boom mic.
I use the Zoom H-5 and H-6 digital recorders. Both are the preferred recorder of every audio rental
shop and they use the latest in nano-technology that provides a 24bit recording (the industry
standard).
I also come with a pair of Beyerdynamic noise-canceling headphones for superior sound detail so you
and I can listen and hear what’s being recorded and constantly monitor the sound for tone and
volume and the best possible signal to noise ratio. I can give you a separate scratch track so you can
listen in.
I also have the new Rode lavs and an Audio-Technica lav mic, for stationary interviews or various other
applications where close proximity is needed. My rig is very compact but hugely effective as 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!
After the shoot, I can also enhance the recorded audio via my Pro Tools studio and Izotope RX
software. I can also transfer the raw audio onto your hard drive or any other digital media desirable. A
unique audio file gets created for each take and I record it in a way that maximizes the headroom so
you have some room to play with in post production without
distortion. In either case, you get a clean, crisp, digital audio recording!
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, 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 judgement! 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 on audio for films since 2000 but I have also mixed live events of all kinds since
1987!
My love of audio recording comes from my studio engineering sessions where among many things I
learned a lot about mics, their uses and 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!
Recording dialog for film is no easy walk in the park for someone without experience! I am not only
very experienced but I’m extremely reliable in every way and I strive for perfection.
