A Verizon day in the life with The Mowglis

14 12 2013

I travelled up to Washington D.C. a few weeks ago to posse up with The Mowglis to document a day in the life as they came to town for a show.  Verizon has them hooked up with some 4g hot spots so they take their social media pretty seriously! Take a look at the video and some of the bts pics after the jump!

Here’s a nice little video on the history of Oak Hill for PGA.com

Interesting week of characters

16 08 2012

This past week was full of interesting characters to put microphones on.

First up: Vice President Joe Biden
A stop in NC on his political campaign got him mic’d up with one of my zaxcom transmitters.

Next up: Dan Ariely

The job was a corporate video, I don’t remember the exact details but I can tell you that this dude is cool. Very interesting cat. He’s a professor at Duke University covering psychology and behavioral economics. Basically he studies lying and cheating and why we do it. All kinds of cool experiments. He’s done some TED talks that have had a looooot of views. By far the most interesting dude to get mic’d up this week. Check him out.

And finally, we have: Billy Burke
Billy is mostly well known for his role in the teeny vampire heart throb Twilight Saga. But he’s now starring in the new NBC show REVOLUTION. The job was an EPK(electronic press kit, or promo video if you will) for NBC on the set of the show, which is shooting in the Wilmington, NC area. Check out the extended web trailer for the show, looks to be interesting!





new Zaxcom heat!

25 04 2011

There had been rumors floating around for a few months leading up to NAB that Zaxcom was going to drop an awesome new multichannel recorder. Well they did, and it is pretty awesome!

So here she is, the Zaxcom Nomad. comes in a couple of different favours. 4, 6, 8 and 12 channel. I must say that I am very impressed with this new fancy voice catcher. I had been looking into getting a Sound Deviced 788 but this has definitely stolen my heart. I’ll be pre-ordering this puppy soon and looking to put it into some high zoot action come early summer when its released!

Tech nerd details: dual CF recording(marf and fat32 with broadcast wave), timecode in and out, 6+ channel models feature zaxnet for ifb and other fancy stuff, inputs hidden in the back(some don’t like, I do!), nice big screen and much more. Hit that link for more details.
