Windchasers


Sound quality is too often brushed over as incidental on film and TV productions. We praise the sound recordists out there making waves, chasing better quality recordings and pressing the importance of the art of sound recording. Windchasers is new series of mini-documentaries and interviews. We meet production sound mixers and explore exotic sound locations to do tests – often windy tests – using the latest technology and equipment to focus on overcoming problems, pushing the boundaries for the best resulting sound quality.

Latest Episode:

Meet Jared Elkin: Professional sound mixer, tinkerer, Editor-In-Chief for online information hub Wav.Report (www.wavreport.com) and all-round nice guy. We share an early morning ride in Las Vegas with him and chat about a life in sound, the weather in Minnesota, gear, wind, limousines and Vegas hotels. Bear in mind this was before coffee on the last day of The NAB Show 2019, after a particularly good shindig the night before. That we were at all articulate is, in our opinion, pretty impressive.
