This is a quick post about my current job. A last minute request was for me to quickly record multiple stunt vehicle sounds for a new 2017 film, written and directed by Edgar Wright. I was flown into Atlanta Georgia to work on Baby Driver, starting Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, etc. Stay tuned later for more details.
I am honored to be featured by Sound Devices. This fantastic American company makes The Best mixers and recorders, Ever! I can't do what I do without their great sounding portable and durable products. Thank you!
Clemson University in South Carolina flew me in to give a speech to their performing arts students and faculty about what I do. The following is a 48 minute long video. You will have to turn up and down your volume during the viewing.
We want to say a special thanks to Performing Arts Department Chair David Hartmann, to Professor Hamilton Alstatt, to RØDE Microphones for providing generous door prizes (SmartLav+ lavalier microphones for smartphones) and to Sound Devices for providing their generous swags (sunglasses, carrying bags, and special pens)!

I was hired to field record a Scion FR-S sports car for EA's Need for Speed 2015 video game. Today is the official release available for XBox One, PS4, and PC. I rigged a total of 7 mics OnBoard the modified car and also tracked it with an External M/S stereo shotgun mic.
From IGN.com "Need for Speed also sounds nearly as good as it looks; the throaty burble of performance-tuned engines is well-realised and the crackle of exhaust overrun and the ker-chuck of slamming gears is similarly resectable." - "Great visuals and sound"
Go out, buy the game, and kill some tires!!
