– PETER GRAF

Having bad audio on a shoot can be a costly and embarrassing exercise, no matter how fancy your shots are.

Certainly, most Filmproduction Companies can manage a standard situation, but where a discerning Client demands the upmost Quality and Attention, only an experienced Industry Specialist can deliver On Set with the confidence you need.

In most cases, engaging a dedicated Sound Recordist for your Project can actually save you money. Having sync sound. Uncompressed ‘RAW’ multitrack for post. And a quality ‘program’ buzz track on Camera that will get you through 95% of the time when you’re on a tight deadline. And a Wireless Cameralink speeding up the production. No time or data wasted on recording 4K RAW Clapper with sync sound. And, less cables on Set mean a safer workplace and a less restricted Camera.

Audio Gear

ZAXCOM MAXX  MIXER RECORDER

24Bit Multichannel Mixer / Recorder with Neverclip™ technology: allows an unprecedented ‘RAW’ dynamic range to be encoded into the 24Bit signal of the individual tracks.  These can be recorded uncompressed with extra headroom, with no fear of distortion or limiting, and without adding any noise in post when the audio is mixed to program level. Features Automix capability for better live multitrack handling. Built-In Timecode Reader / Generator and daylight readable Clapper display

2x LECTROSONICS SMDA & BODYPACK TRANSMITTER

SENNHEISER 8060 SHOTGUN MIC & AMBIENT BOOM

The Sennheiser 8060 is the most recent re-innovation of the legendary 416. It’s modular, shorter, has a more even directionality across all frequencies, better noise and S/N ratios. On a carbonfibre Ambient boompole that will do most situations nicely .

SENNHEISER 2000  WIDEBAND CAMERA LINK

This Wideband Wireless System not only provides high quality transmission, but is also more robust against spectrum loss due to the Digital Dividend. Can be used as 3rd Talent mic with MKE-2 lapel

RODE NEWSSHOOTER KIT

Based on 2.4GHz WIFI technology, this low-latency Wireless is the Out-of-Jail card in an RF hostile environment. Can also used for a Wireless Boom (P48), or 4th Talent mic (Rode lapel). Standard goto option for the A6300 mirrorless camera kit.

MOZEGEAR SYNCBOX

Compact Timecode Reader/Generator. Can combine an audio scratch track and convert SMPTE Timecode to LTC for DSLR use (record timecode on audio track).

There is a variety of accessories, backup recorders, microphones, stands, that are too many to mention. Most importantly, this kit will do most jobs, and offer redundancies to cope with the unexpected.

PROFESSIONAL.

Sound Recording for Film and TV has been my profession for over 20 years. I have worked for Realestate, Lifestyle Programs, Gardening and Science shows, News and Current Affair. I have seen and heard a few things.

MULTISKILLED.

Being On Set is a team effort. I like the day to go smoothly. Being proactive and knowing each others needs gets the job done faster and better.

AFFORDABLE.

Whilst this gear is equal to what you can find in the big smoke, you will find my rates quite affordable. In fact, most elements are cheaper than a metropolitan service charge. My rates haven’t changed in the last few years, whilst everything else has gone up. Why? I do this to promote and support our local film industry.

SUSTAINABLE.

I’m here to build long lasting business relationships to mutual benefit.

I continuously reinvest into latest technology and equipment to offer you the best possible options.

I value OH&S principles and safety in the workplace.

All my production batteries are rechargeable, and there is quite a lot of them 😉
