I enjoy working on many different projects but I gravitate towards commercial, corporate, interview, and documentary productions that make a difference. I also enjoy delivering clean audio when it seems that it is almost an impossibility. That truly brings a smile to my face, and to my clients.
The challenge for this shoot was to know when to pause filming since there was a busy street outside with many city buses passing by and that there was a fire station across the street that seemed to always have sirens going.
The challenge here was that there was a highway about 100 feet from our filming location and it was about 100 degrees out with 70% humidity. My positioning of my microphone and the microphone used was able to minimize the traffic sound and by purchasing and maintaining professional gear none of my equipment failed.
The challenge for this shoot was only being able to use a hidden lav and no boom mic while rolling continuously for a single take. I was able to find the perfect location to hide the mic and make it sound as best as it could through all the different environmental areas we filmed in.
The challenge for this shoot was that the last three hours of the shoot day there was a drum core that was practicing and marching around the football field. I recognized how the sound was echoing off the buildings in the area and suggested a place for them to practice that minimized their sound.
The challenge for this shoot was that there was an espresso/cappuccino small business about twenty feet from where we were shooting the interviews. I was able to understand which noises were interfering too much and which were acceptable for the finished project. We were constantly pausing the interviews, but the end result sounds great.
The challenge for this shoot was finding a proper place to do a voice over at the end of the day. I was able to rule out some often used spaces, and we ended up paying a neighbor to use their home. It ended up sounding great.
