    Any ideas on finding quiet place to record post audio?

    That's interesting, I never would have suspected that. We ended up finding a location that was acceptable. This episode really reminded me how much important it is to pay attention to noise level in location scouting. Many of the originally recorded stuff was nearly unusable because it...

    Basic sound kit for foley & etc

    Hmm I don't have one. I also have a second machine ( mac laptop with final cut & logic, both desktop and laptop have Audition installed as well ) Hopefully if I can find one with mac/pc compatibility, that would be awesome.

    Basic sound kit for foley & etc

    Ah yea you're right, there will be minimal prop recording. I'll have the footage playing on the monitor as visual cue while recording, but there won't be any fancy foley effects, nor will the environment be completely silent. I will be using PC, premiere with protools. Those are what I have so...

    Basic sound kit for foley & etc

    How to deal with flakes

    Hey Guys, How do you deal with flakes? I have a sound guy who just disappeared after I paid him. I need the recorded files, but he wont return my calls and emails. Should I have wrote some kind of contract? This was done through verbal agreement, I got his invoices, but no agreements.

    Location Release

    Ahhh so I should get it signed when I first approach.... Do you guys know if it's likely for the owner to say yes if I approach in person? Or do you normally just call the places instead? Although I guess I still have to see the place first. Already got couple of rejections. :(

    Location Release

    I could offer around $200, I guess that's a lowish figure for such a bother. I guess I could propose to do it during closed hour. hmmm Thanks for your response!

    Location Release

    Do I need the location owner to sign the location release when... 1. I'm approach them prior to the shoot? or 2. On the day of the shoot? I need to shoot in a thrift shop for a day. Should I approach them w/ $ to see if I can have the owner to close shop for 2~3hrs for the shoot? location...
