Over the past couple of weeks I haven’t been on set, but have been putting all of my time and effort into a personnel film project. I reached out recently and was sent the rough cut of the film by the producer, but it seems as if the sound is still very much in the […]

ON SET! I’ve been on set all week this week, and it has definitely been a very mixed experience so far. I finally got to meet the Sound Recorder I will be working with on Monday, and unfortunately we have been having a lot of trouble communicating due to a mix of factors, mostly involving […]

I haven’t heard much from my Director or AD since the crew meetings a few weeks ago, but we start filming next week so I am assuming they will be reaching out more towards the end of the week to give us a shooting schedule and prepping us for the week shoot. In the meantime […]

This week I finally was able to get in contact with all the people I would be working with throughout the film set, as only about half of them showed up to the original crew meeting due to complications on set. My director, Anastasia, seems to have a very prepared shooting schedule and I was […]

I especially payed attention to where the mic was placed to see if the actors seemed like they were whispering or they were far away to try and […]

This week, I started preparing for my role as a boom op by setting up a meeting with the sound crew on the film that I will be working on, and watching the films recommended by the director and producer to gain a better understanding of what sort of sound atmosphere the director would want […]

This week I started out with 0 roles on a film set. I had not heard back from either director who had asked to see my work over the break, and was feeling overall very disheartened. However, one of my friends, Bella, in the course had a film that she was no longer able to […]
