Sonic Boom "The eye sees better when the sound is great." -Stephen Spielberg

Sound is important. It deserves to be captured with great care and respect. Sound is everywhere. As humans we use sound to communicate with each other whether in person, over the phone or in music and film. Please take a moment to browse my FB page and if you have any further questions or if you’d like to book me for your next shoot please get a hold of me. Sonic Boom, is ready and eager to work on your next project at a reasonable rate. I’m always available and I have a passport!

I was contacted last night (Memorial Day) for a 2 hour job this Friday. First time since the quarantine.

Ultimately, I didn’t take the job because it was going to be a super low budget affair with questionable safety measures.

I quoted them real rates and was met with the all too familiar “I’m paying for this out of pocket.” Blah blah blah.

Don’t fall for it. Keep those rates high and hold producers to their responsibility to keep you and the set safe.

I got here at 9 for a 9:30 call time. Camera was late about an hour. Set up my gear. Watched them set camera and stuff. Mic’d up talent. Still waiting to roll my first file of the day....wrap at 6ish.

I’m glad this is over. I couldn’t sustain it much longer.

I’ve had problems with payment with 2 different productions in a row now. If I did my job as poorly as the people who produce these things I would never succeed. It really really hurts when you work hard for a client only to be forgotten when it comes time to be paid. Accounting issues on your part are not my problem, except they are unfortunately.

01/28/2020

A client I worked for back in mid December has not paid me. We’ve been in contact about it. There was an “accounting error” that caused them to not pay me at net 30 or beyond. Once I notified them a PayPal payment was sent to me almost immediately. I responded that I would prefer a physical check and pay stub. They’ve responded with a pay stub but have not agreed to issue a check as of now. The communication feels cold and as if they’re annoyed by my continued desire for a check. How should I proceed?

Today I took the Fisher boom class with Eric. Surprised myself and did pretty good! Much more practice needed however.

I was almost in the movie Tropic Thunder when I lived in Kauai and was cast as the Boom Op (premonition?) in the fake movie within the movie. Unfortunately I was contractually obligated to continue recording the USSAF band in the studio and couldn’t accept the job due to timing.

That’s how I thanked them and all the Veterans around the globe for their service.

Great story. We owe her so much.

Great story. We owe her so much.

Hedy Lamarr, often proclaimed “the most beautiful woman in the world.” The 26-yr-old Lamarr was thriving in Hollywood when, in September 1940, Nazi U-boats hunted down & sank a cruise ship trying to evacuate 90 British schoolchildren to Canada. 77 drowned in the bleak north Atlantic. Lamarr, a Jewish immigrant from Nazi-occupied Austria, who had been making America her home since 1938, was outraged. She fought back by applying her engineering skills to development of a sonar sub-locator used in the Atlantic for the benefit of the Allies.The principles of her work are now incorporated into modern Wi-Fi, CDMA and Bluetooth technology,and this work led to her to be inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2014.

Watched a movie I worked on a few years back....Montana was so beautiful. Good times with Anthony on Boom.

On the last day in Tahoe, on the last scene and almost the last shot, the photographer of the event came over to me and told me that he couldn’t believe how hard I worked and what an amazing job I was doing.

This was right in front of the producers.

I can’t tell you how good it felt. I did tell him that it made my day, hell my year!

ENG style bag work can be very challenging. Especially at altitude in near freezing conditions. I’m glad I’m doing ok at it so far.....

Don’t be afraid to tell someone they’re doing a great job. Sometimes it makes all the difference in the world to them. Pass it on. 💚🤙💪😎🎧
