Standard network news crew: producer, correspondent, cameraman and soundman. I used a long shotgun boom mic and wireless body mics, sent two wireless channels to the camera, and recorded 24/48 WAV back-up audio.
35mm film shoot. Full crew (except for the one-man sound department). I mixed four channels to two and recorded on a timecode DAT recorder.
Shot with a Canon 5D. Double-system sound recorded on a two-track digital audio recorder.
I sent musical accompaniment playback from the director's laptop to the actors through wireless IFB earpieces, so they could sing in tempo and on key.
Shot with a Sony CineAlta on a jib. I used a long shotgun boom mic and a body mic, recorded discrete tracks on a timecode DAT recorder, and sent an identical feed to the CineAlta.
Shot with Panasonic VariCam and Red One cameras alternately, by one cameraman. I sent two wireless channels to the VariCam and two hardwire channels to the Red One.
I worked on the U.S. part of this documentary.
Shot with a Sony Betacam 600. I sent two audio channels to the camera, classic ENG style.
I also recorded a sound-only interview on location (for additional VO) with a timecode DAT recorder, and set up a "double-ender" allowing the director to conduct the interview in Iowa from her office in San Francisco.
