    My old machine had this trouble, and I only discovered it when I did the first really layered video. There's simply too much data being shuffled around. What I did was broke the video into 30...

    I think it's so they can give you nice present ideas when it gets near the date!

    I'd add that the skill of the person aiming is probably even more important. So many people demonstrate booming skills that verge on the ludicrous. Aiming vaguely in the direction, and rarely...
  4. FS5: The funniest thing with OB work is that people...

    The funniest thing with OB work is that people always come up to you and ask questions afterwards - if it's sport, they'll ask about a foul or an injury, and if it's music, they'll ask about strings...

    That's actually very clever - sadly, it's something I don't have the imagination to make. I'd like too see more though.

    The best word ever was hyperbole, second to hysteresis neither of which trip off the tongue in the correct way. During a long running summer season with a comedian here in the UK, I'd challenge him...

    Any examples? I can't quite imagine the kind of thing you're planning? Sounds interesting though?

    For a musician the important thing is that lighting comes in two forms, lighting for illumination and lighting for mood. The lighting in a mood video will have shadows, hotspots, darkness, and...

    We had film, we had tape too - we had job titles linked to historic processes - 'grams' still comes up linked to operators, or the sound that comes up on a fader - but gramophones? A theatre I work...

    I’m sure you’ll be fine, most of the issues are performer centred, so we can usually deflect negatives. I usually cheat. We see all of them but hear two or three of the better ones. Nobody ever...

    I've done quite a few classical things during lockdown and the most complicated - over 40 individual singers were involved and the list of mistakes and errors were way, way worse than I ever...

    How are you planning to sync them? I presume they’ll sing to a repeated track? The snag in a church is how you keep the track out of their mics. Personally these things are a nightmare to do because...

    If often though DPA make their reputation though sound and price, as in they’re expensive enough owner operators take extra care, but for hire stock or stores supplied kit they’re too fragile. They...

    None of the lavs will sound like a dynamic, and of course lavs tend to be omni making room reflections worse. I’d suggest buying a cheapie to try if you can’t borrow one. There are wired Chinese ones...

    You have to forgive me but I lit my first show professionally in the late 70s, and still do quite bit. Small scale to mega scale, and still do the occasional (or did when theatres were open) amateur...

    Well, I'd read that as "We have tested the FS5 and are 100% certain it is fine - but we've not tested the PMW-300, so although we cannot think of a circumstance where this is possible, we cannot say...

    The trouble is that comparison doesn’t work in any meaningful way. If it is a food, in beam spread, then 100W is a glow worm. A 100W source with narrower beam spread can be punchy. If you were in...

    Are we talking TV lights? Close is always bad - as when they move about they start to get very close and close means half the stage might be in darkness by an actor close to the light. If these are...

    It boils down to if it's art, or illumination. Amateur dramatics used floods for years, but now full RGBW colour mixing cheap and cheerful kits is available so easily, i's rare to see even cash...

    You could crop her out and then even a small green screen would work to put somebody in the picture. You could then distort the image in photoshop to make the perspective fit for the second camera...

    It looks really good. Being very honest, the mix of black skin, black clothing and black background would have worried me in the planning but it’s worked amazingly well. The lower angle side lighting...

    I found the 0dB setting fine for speech - rarely maxes out the preamp, and then I use the other setting when the speaker talks up - like addressing a meeting, and the lowest gain when the person...

    There’s a difference between movement and instability. A very tall riser isnt unstable, it just moves. Thinner ones introduce twist, but 3 or 4 chord types are usually very rigid. The problem is...
