Yosemite Sound

Published by soundgeek2496 under Ambience, SFX.

I took the new Fusion 10 out for a hike in Yosemite to go up the Nevada Falls trail and see what I could get.  The top of the Nevada falls area just sounded as basic as any rushing water river or creek, however down below at the bottom of another waterfall (Vernal Falls), the [...]

Carnival Rides – Mojave

I was the production sound mixer for a horror teen-slasher film titled One By One which was shot out at California City Studios in the Mojave Desert.  We spent about 3 weeks shooting in the  late night during some rather cold desert weather, around 25 degrees on average.  This set was a real operational carnival [...]

A Day At The Park

Published by soundgeek2496 under Animals, SFX.

Decided to go try out the new gear and the new MS set up using a matched pair of Oktava MK-012 (the real russian type).  There’s a bit of street noise being that the park sits in between a fairly busy street and major freeway.  Recordings were recorded on a Sound Devices 702T at 24 [...]
