Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone. Adios to 2009, bring on the 10.

I'm looking forward to bringing in the new year with all my friends at
Glee next week.

Love your work! Love Glee and just randomly found your blog looking for forums on gear advice. What kind of new toys did you add to your cart?

Amy in Austin!

Hello Amy,

Glad you like the show. On set right now, filming Finn, Santana and Brit. Late night Friday night on the Paramount Lot.

For the new year I added more to the playback portion of the rig. More ear wigs, a thumper system and more speakers. All for the music production numbers we do on Glee.

Oh...also changed out my battery system on the main cart. I went big, a 75 AH Optima battery. Heavy, but worth it.

Thanks again...

That's awesome! Congrats on all your successes. I would imagine you need some amazing playback for that. We started out in recording, then migrated to post, then got annoyed by the awful local booms/mixers. So glad we do it now, so much fun!

We've mainly been renting for a while, so tired of it. Ready to assemble a full rig. In Austin there isn't too much call for one, but we are about to shoot some features so we will have the need/opportunity.
Now I just have to decide between building and buying.. hmmm any tips?
