Screen Shot 2017-07-06 at 3.58.13 PM

In this episode we pass the podcast over to George Vlad and Daan Hendricks who tell us all about their trip to a field recording workshop in Mmabolela Reserve, Limpopo, South Africa.  They discuss everything from the planning and preparations,  getting from their homes in Europe to this remote location, and the gear they used (and how it held up in the extreme weather conditions). They also reminisce on the impressions the trip has left on their lives.  All with fantastic examples of the sounds they recorded while there.

Here are some pictures of the places they were able to record:

053 – Phil Stockton & The Sound of “Silence”

Phil Stockton is a long time Sound-Supervisor based in New York City. In this episode we talk to him about the work he did on Martin Scorsese’s new film “Silence”. Lots of effort went into creating the soundscape of this story that takes place 400 years ago. As a bonus we start off with a quick hit of Tom Fleischman’s experience as the re-recording mixer of the film.

040 – rollercoasters

I got a huge opportunity to record tons of rollercoasters at a fully locked out six flags park. Full access and high expectations. This is that story.
