Dear Filmmaker,
I'm a sound man with the experience of hundreds shoots and recordings 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 Sennheiser MKH 416 shotgun mic which is the industry standard and go to boom mic that I
usually attach to a K-Tek boom pole that I can make wireless or even use other mics wirelessly for things like on-the-go interviews.
I am also equipped to leave a boom pole attached to a c-stand for stationary and convenient functionality.
I use the Zoom F8 (8-channel recorder) and H-6 digital recorders (sometimes together at once!).
So either way, you will get a 24bit recording (the industry standard for high-def audio).
I also have a set of the new Rode lavs, the Ambient timecode LockItSlate and can provide timecode for up to 2 cameras with Ambient Nano Lockit boxes.
I have a set of Comteks for up to 3 people to listen in to a scratch track or to send a wireless scratch track to other devices.
My rig is very compact but highly effective as many of my repeat clients can attest to.
The rig is also completely wireless and about 90% green.
I use a 20hr recorder battery, so all I do is replace rechargeable batteries for my wireless mics.
After the shoot, I can also transfer the raw audio onto your hard drive or any other
media desirable via USB cable.
A unique audio file gets created for each take with each track grouped together along with a separate pre-mixed
“poly wave” is also created on a second card so you have both options to play with!
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 (such as the recent interviews for BOTH HBO Boxing specials for the promotion of “Canelo vs GGG” for last year and this year’s anticipated fights).
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 Film since 2000 but I have also mixed live events of all kinds since 1987!
Most recently was November 2017 at Pepperdine University, where I recorded Olivia Newton-
John, Amy Sky, and Beth Nielsen-Chapman's concert.
My love of audio recording comes from my studio engineering experience 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!
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 musical performance recording,
I cross over between music and film very regularly.
Recording dialog for film is no easy walk in the park for someone without experience!
I am not only experienced but I’m reliable in every way and I strive for perfection.
My rates can be negotiated based on what you actually need, and in many cases a kit fee may not be necessary!
