When it comes to recording Production Sound, it is not just about hitting buttons and keeping levels “between the ditches”. It is about keeping great relationships and ensuring that you are always networking. Chris Howland of LA Sound Mixers is a great advocate for getting in with a community that truly cares and knows how to guide people in the right direction when it comes to recording sound in Los Angeles.
Chris also puts on seminars annually and even has a course on VideoMantis, called Utility Sound Technicians Panel and Discussion. This course is incredible and a must-watch for anyone getting into the 3rd position of a sound crew. It will help you understand the perspective of what is required on any given day.
This was a LIVE DISCUSSION that was recorded on July 24th, 2018 @ 2:00PM Pacific Time on Facebook. We archive them here for everyone for free. Be sure to check out the others..
Video Mantis Discussions are a weekly talk show hosted by Thomas Popp with guests of all calibers. Join in to discuss production sound topics and how the professionals handle themselves on their own gigs.
