I recently complete an edit for a client in which he recorded a few video segments for his health and nutrition business. Everything appeared fine on local playback so I uploaded it to Youtube for him to approve. Imagine my surprise when he emailed me to let me know there was something wrong with the audio. I listened to my local copy again and admitted there was a quite a bit of wind noise when it was originally recorded so I tweaked the audio and uploaded it again. And again I received the same complaint: bad audio. Read the rest of this entry »
My church is premiering a Christian movie designed to get people talking about the book “The Great Controversy” which talks about God and how evil was brought into this world; a world which was supposed to be free from sickness, death and evil.
To enable the proper viewing of the movie many of us had to get together to erect a 40ft screen. It took time and a LOT of hands.
The stills were shot with a Swann Freestyle Action Cam, cleaned up in Lightroom and then complied in Sony Vegas Pro 12.
The move to digital audio mixing has come along in a trickle, to say the least.

There was also the issue of fear about the complexity of installation and operation that comes with a digital board. I think PreSonus has done a great job of taking care of both of those issues with their line of digital mixing consoles. Read the rest of this entry »
SpaceAge Consulting not only does Video Production and Editing but we also provide Audio Engineering for live and studio applications as well as Audio consultation. One of my favorite aspects of my job is to work with Churches on improving and installing their audio systems. I have been blessed to work with many churches on making minor and major improvements to their sound systems. However, over the years I have noticed a few common themes with church sound systems: there is no long term plan…. Read the rest of this entry »
It’s been a long time since I spoken on any Audio Engineering or consultation that I have done since my installation in a church in West Virginia but Audio is still a good part of my daily life especially when shooting with a DSLR. Audio is still considered to be as important if not more important than video.With that in mind I have been looking at upgrading my daily audio gear from a Zoom H1 to something a little more robust. After I narrowed my choices by price and features I ended up comparing the Zoom H4n and the Tascam DR-40. Read the rest of this entry »
I received some great advice from Robin Axtell of Axtell Design and Marketing and decided to made some changes to my logo. Because of those changes I needed to create a new closing credits video logo and after much solicited advice (even from my 8 year old son) I chose this one to work with over the next few months.
On June 17th Kelly Leonard (of the Taylor-Leonard Corp) hosted a Small Business Networking Luncheon as part of the Networking Series which brings Small Business owners of Montgomery together along with bankers, and member of the county governments.
I have attended a few of the shorter meet and greets but the luncheon top them all with 4 separate panels which focused on topics such as using Social Networking for marketing, how to raise money and different ways to be more successful.
It was a great opportunity and I met some wonderful people. Some of the pictures I took are hosted on the site (http://www.mymcmedia.org/small-business-day-at-mcm-photos/) and have created a short video with some of the other photos that highlight the day. MCM Small Business Luncheon
