I'm spending all my time trying to make my first feature film:
I've just moved target shoot dates from June to September 2013 - shooting in NYC and the Hamptons/Montauk!
And then the other thing I do a lot of these days is work on film shoots as a Sound person. Aka sound mixer, location sound, sound.
I don't edit sound on computers. I arrive at film shoots and place microphones in strategic places and record the sound - for example, I'll put microphones on actors and record the words they say. This means I touch a lot of famous actresses in their bra area. It's only weird if you make it weird. Or if the actress is a diva and yells at you. Or if it's an actor who is really hairy. That's difficult. Usually I can hear their chest hair rubbing up against my microphone and I have to poke at the actor and move it around and then they get annoyed with me for poking at them and they simply don't understand my dedication to details.
I recently purchased a 664
if you don't know anything about it, the 664 is the new hot slut of the sound world.
People are so excited about this machine, they are saying it's the messiah of all rectangular boxes that mix and record, and that if you use it, you'll wet your underpants in the best way possible.
I believed the hype, and after 2 years of owning a 702/fp33 as my starter kit - I irresponsibly placed the 664 and $1k in accessories (bag, battery, cables) on my credit card.
My credit card loves being used like this and it knows it sets my heart afflutter among the roar of my student loan debt and lack of savings.
But we are all smiles,
because I'm a big winner with big phat juicy flame broiled dreams
and it's all going to be worth it in the end.
