My crew and I are about to start production on the new Fox series Glee. We will be filming mostly at Paramount, with some locations near the studios for our "out" days. The new series is supposed to air with the final few episodes of American Idol. So...hopefully, we will see some audience carry over from the Fox juggernaut.
Lots of sound challenges on the new show including lots of playback and music recording. Looking forward to the experience.
On the gear front, I've had all my radios that were in the blocks that the FCC has sold off changed and refrequencied to legal blocks. This ended up costing me quite a bit, so I hope the results will be worth it. I just didn't feel like dealing with it in the middle of a show, so now felt like a good time to switch over.
The new utility cart ROCKS! Thank you Brett. He's built another one for Peter Devlin and he just started using it on his current film. Peter is quite happy too. Can't recommend the cart enough.
Need to purchase and stereo mic in the near future as well as an additional Comtek Base Station, for ear wigs.
First thing I'm buying is the new Sennheiser C5000 circularly polarized antenna. Good reports all around, and the reality shows have been using them in their installations for a couple of years now. I'm ready for one.
There's the update.
