The following is a short time lapse video of my recent weapons field recording setup. It was for Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, a new exciting shooter game by Tripwire Interactive. Present in the video are: John Gibson (President of Tripwire Interactive), Mark Muraski (Audio Director of Tripwire Interactive), Chris Rickwood (composer and sound designer), Jesse Allen (composer, sound designer, field recordist, and maker of this short film), Watson Wu, and Jason Shortuse (assistant to Watson Wu).
I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas! I am truly blessed to be among the people I meet and work with.
Enjoy this video. I was scouting for a recording location and the property owner had me to shoot his HUGE Smith & Wesson 500 revolver (using 500 grains ammo). FYI, the S&W 500 is the most powerful production handgun ever made! Just look at the HUGE muzzle blast!!
ASoundEffect.com asked me to write a weapons sound effects recording guide for their site. It took me many months to gather my thoughts, organizing these thoughts, then finally into writing. Enjoy this lengthy guide.
I was commissioned to produce the following hunting safety video. Be safe out there! Special thanks to Ron, George, Jason Shortuse, and Frank Correa.
