Count on me for the audio gear and as a reliable knowledgeable
production location sound recordist in the city of Boulder
CO or the state or travel me where your production is. My professional sound mixing & recording background
dates professionally to 1990, as well in larger production
expertise starting at Denver 8 television before becoming
a freelancer. Aside from sound mixing & recording
on location, I also have a post production and studio
background in sound mixing, as well recording aside
from my years as a audio guy. Additionally, my production skills aside from being a sound recordist extend into other skills as well, and I'm able to help with other production tasks on your video, film or television production.
My freelance experience in the field spans every type
of cable & network television program, ENG, SNG,
video productions and many types of film productions
as well. I have been a reliable assistant to camera
people & crews across the US, as well, from other
countries as well.
Aside from Boulder, as a sound man I provide audio
tech services in the neighboring areas from Longmont,
Marshall, Superior, Lafayette, Louisville, Broomfield,
western Arvada, Golden, Niwot, Jamestown, Erie and Nederland.
Here are the benefits in hiring a sound person on
your camera crew
Clean sound mixing & recording enabling you
as a camera person, director etc, to concentrate
on your production responsibilities.
Location sound people can also help with lighting
and sitting in for shots (as I can).
Location sound recordist's are essential for
DSLR shoots or for other cameras like film cameras
where the director of photography does not have
the time for both cinematography & sound recording
Sound recording for DSLR or proprietary interface
video cameras requires external recording, as the
common example; DSLR audio inputs are noisy, unbalanced
and the cameras audio noise level is higher than
cameras with balanced audio inputs or XLR inputs,
so just hire me as your sound guy for better sound
External recording of audio to digital files
with or without time code by a sound man like me
enables better audio than a camera mic, and time
code sync recording can also serve as a backup if
the camera is at fault.
Sync sound enables a 35mm film the reliable audio
recording with a time code reference to the film,
and shooting with multiple cameras in several positions
requires and sound recordist to back audio with
time code. Sometimes it also clutters the camera
on a steadicam, Ronin, or other stabilizer have
sound equipment attached, so you need a location
sound recordist to record audio externally.
Location /production sound mixers like myself
have interfaces for the higher end cameras with
non XLR connections including RED, Alexa, Thomson,
Vision etc. Some of the vision cameras have no audio
inputs and rely foley on external audio recording,
as well other models.
Post production audio editing, sweetening and
cleaning is lessened and more often than not eliminated
when you hire a qualified, experienced sound recordist
that has the resources to mix and record clean audio
Rely on the expertise for all types of television
programming production audio that many experienced
audio people have.
Hire an audio tech to operate a boom while you
operate the camera, and the sound person can also
mix & record other sources to the cameras. It's
not possible to operate the boom and camera simultaneously.
Why hire a sound recordist for film production?
Sound recordist's are always necessary to record
sync sound on a film crew
Hiring a sound man or woman on film productions
enables management of audio files so you do not
have to stop to manage & catalogue audio with
Sound recordist's can be employed for foley,
or other audio engineering tasks in post production
and impact the quality & impact of the film
to the audience
Hiring a larger sound crew in film or video production
covering actors or other critical audio sources
will eliminate ADR & costly post production
A broader production background to speed your production

camera person and DIT. I can also wrangle data, capture

for those operating in Windows. I also use the software
soundtrack pro frequently among other professional audio

telling upon my discretion as well. If you need advice,
