Location Sound Recordist Wanted in Melbourne
It's all on location, with conversations between two people. Some in a car, some outdoors. We want to hide lapel mics on each person and possibly also put a bug in the car for safety. Outside, we'll be shooting with 3 cameras, lapels plus boom, and want a scratch track wirelessly sent to each camera. At the end of the shoot day we'll copy the recorded audio files from your SD card to our hard drive.
Each shoot will be approx 5hrs. If we can get through it in 4hrs we will, but expect 5hrs.
We can afford $400/day for operator with gear. We know it's lower than standard TV rates, but this is a low budget independently produced, privately funded show that we're making. We are raising the budget from private investors. There isn't a TV network or government funding behind this, but we do have a deal with a broadcaster to air it.
It's an ambitious project and our investment is as much emotional as it is in time. We already have professional camera people on board with high level TV and commercial production experience. Hence, we're now looking for a professional soundie with good gear and a keen passion to be part of something great.
We expect to be shooting sometime between June and August. No dates are locked down yet but if you're interested please get in touch, list your gear and level of experience and send a private message if you'd like more information or want to request a phone call to chat about the project offline.
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesShoot dates TBC. Shooting sometime between June and August.
$400 per day
