Sound Prep

Posted on: 16 October, 2010

Over the last few weeks I’ve been preparing for a month-long stint doing location sound for an independent feature film that will be shot in Costa Rica. This has involved familiarizing myself with the recording device, a Marantz PMD661, and several different mics.

While I’ve had various bits of training and experience in sound recording and mixing, it is not my most comfortable area of technical knowledge, so I’ve also been reading a bit, from my own library (Rabiger’s book ‘Directing: Film Techniques and Aesthetics‘ and Ascher & Pincus’ ‘Filmmaker’s Handbook‘) and from a few online resources, such as FilmSound.org, where I found this inspiring article ‘On Being Creative‘ by Randy Thom.
