I've never seen one standing

So you probably know the first part of that joke, and I don’t need to repeat it. To be truthful, I’m guilty of it, it is just so prevalent in the business. Indoctrinated into you from a young age. Everyone picks on the sound recordist. I once said to a recordists I know (Antonio Arroyo […]

SCORE in Brooklyn.

Over the course of the afternoon and amid […]
