Pelican Case for the H4n Recorder

Pelican Case for the H4n Recorder

After damaging a H4N screen and taking several months to repair I though best to use a little pelican micro box to hold the little guy. When you are in hurry and things are flying around on a location the last thing you want is to ruin a piece of gear. The little box it comes with is not quite up to snuff. A drop from the counter is all it took. Oops! I thought this the best solution, as several of the last shoots have been around a pool.

Behind the scenes of a new video series.

I thought I’d share a few behind the scenes snapshots from our Redneck Movie Night series of videos. This project has been a long time in the making and should be an informative and entertaining bunch of videos. Dr. Dan will be taking us through a full studio set photo shoot from beginning to end. Watch for the videos to start rolling out in the coming weeks.

In this day with all the nifty stuff going round, I have found this to be a great way to record things that need to be recorded when you are shooting on location. Sometimes people say things, and they really should be recorded if not with pen and paper then a little sound bite can make all the difference. Kind of like recording a lecture in chemistry 101. Just wanted to make sure exactly what the professor said, so there kind be no kind of confusion when it comes time to get the “final” payment ohoh I mean grade.

I have also started to record everything when we are doing a video shoot. From the moment we start. I try to get the talent mic’ed ASAP until it’s a wrap. I have ALL the sound. So many little sound bites come when the camera isn’t rolling, I decided this is the way to go. The furry windscreens come from Hawaii. All kinds of cool colors. Go forth and make sound……
