    I've always considered that you produce for the audience. Most of my work comes (used to come) from live theatre. One show I've worked on loads of times is 99% female audience. Good looking guys...

    In the UK we have a programme on Tv called naked attraction. Do you have it on US TV? A contestant has six coloured ‘tubes, in front of him and they raise up to reveal the genitals of six naked...

    I used to send to the production company DVDs every project for their archive, and I bought BluRay drives and media. I mentioned this year I was sending BluRay, they said NO NO NO - please just DVDs....

    Surely the snag here is really mic positioning. You are only thinking maximum subject, and forgetting minimum other capture. It means knowing your mics well enough to know where their nulls are, and...

    Totally agree. In my studio, adjusting the gain is only needed when I swap to a mega hot mic, or mega deaf one. All the others seem to be around 6 so a bit up or down isnt an issue at all.

    Interesting on the takes on this. Most of my stuff is centred on entertainment, and it's quite common to have maybe 15 minutes the audience side of a safety curtain, or tab set, just in case. Most...

    I never keep boxes even for products under warranty. I cannot imagine doing it apart from a few items where the value is in the box too. I bought a couple of those Shure SM58 anniversary mobs in the...

    How about some old stuff?

    In between jobs, so I started to have a tidy up - first for ages and got sidetracked when I found some flight cases!

    WARNING - if easily offended by old video gear, don't watch. No cards, no HD,...

    The practical profit on making a cable like this works out to around £30 here in the UK and the customer would have to shell out around £60 with parts and tax to consider. If you could make and sell...

    I just read Charles comment properly. I’ve got one of the BM SDI to hdmi devices and it never occurred to me the in and out were not a simple loop! Thanks.

    I can do 100m from camera to monitor, but my ten year old Blackmagic switchers will not lock, oddly - the cheap SDI to HDMI converter I have for the BM ATEM mini does? Two 60m cables won't work on...

    Balance it with considering that repeated insertion will wear the contacts and possibly remove any surface treatment and potentially allow oxidation and contaminant build up. You could consider any...

    The only snag with libraries is that you don't get an exclusive licence so other people could be using the same tracks - you could probably get a person to do unique music for your show for the same...

    I know we started off talking about outdoors, but those videos made me think - so I went around the studio today collecting shotguns and recorded each one I found.

    Essentially I set the gain,...

    I've been using steel deck for years 4x4 with 2' legs. I have a bad back, so everything I have now has wheels, or wheelboards. This looks pretty decent and much lighter than steel deck, but...

    How much height have you got - if it's not too low, you can even use old sheets - and use elastic bunny cords on the corners to pull it tight - then light it from over or under. No good with a low...

    Polystyrene on the ceiling is a huge fire hazard, probably bad enough to invalidate insurance. My insurance specifically bans polystyrene tiles. Matt emulsion works well enough. Some of the LED tape...
