New light weight run n gun kit

21 11 2011

So I built up a sweet little run and gun kit for those long days with boom and a couple of wireless.

So I’ve got a Sound Devices 302 mixer to two wireless transmitters for camera hop, also running to a tascam dr40 recorder for backup(or simple dslr gigs). For my wireless its a Lectrosonics SRa dual channel receiver with SMV transmitters coupled with a selection of Sanken, Countyman or Tram lavaliere mics. And of course my Sennheiser mkh60 shotgun with a K-tek 152cc 12′ boom pole. All powered by one NP-1 style battery, which on the 12 hour day I worked on Saturday for the Golf Channel, only used 25% of the battery. My next upgrade will be adding one of Cable Techniques emergency Rx devices to add a 4th channel into the 302. Oh yeah, and its super light! My shoulders felt nothing at the end of the day, can’t say the same for my feet tho..





ESPNU’s Road Trip

4 10 2011

Look Ma! I’m on the teevee!

Had the pleasure to work with Beaudry Film works this past weekend on their show Road Trip for ESPNU. The Show will be airing this Wednesday at 6:30pm eastern time on ESPNU(its usually at 7:30 but this week there is a schedule change).

Here’s the camera man, Robb Shaw and myself after getting rained on in 40 degree temps, aka not so fun. But other than that, an awesome crew and a good time hanging around Blacksburg and VA Tech!

August Photo Dump

20 09 2011

Can’t really come up with any good subject to post on but I’ve been sitting on a good bit of photos, so here they are!





Gettin Xtreeeeeeme!

2 08 2011

A few weeks ago I got a call to do sound on a segment for TLC’s Extreme Couponing show. If you aren’t familiar with it then let me explain. The subject goes crazy with couponing, to the extreme! They go to the market and fill up like 8 buggies and only pay like $25 for all of it. Yeah, its pretty nuts to witness. And it takes a looooong time to film it… And like most gigs I always try to learn a few things for real world usage. But will the manglers go extreme with coupling? Probably not, but I do have a small stash right now and I’m just waiting for the deals to drop!

Risky Maneuvers

13 06 2011

I constantly find myself in risky situations, controlled of course! I’ve went from walking around a farmers market, shooting guns, crazy chemicals, giant magnets and various other biohazards all in the past week.
