by Shaun Kendall 2 years ago
We are wanting to set up two different 70V sound systems at a location and most of the time, they will be independent of each other. But sometimes, we'd like for the speakers in system B to be fed fro

by Shaun Kendall 2 years ago
The only down-side to this is that it would require us to have the "B" system amplifier on whenever we want to have the "B" speakers fed from the "A" system. We were hoping to avoid that, hence the A

by Shaun Kendall 2 years ago
Absolutely! I've done this many times. I'm guessing the Sennheiser kit you have is either the G2 or G3 EW100, where the body pack and receiver each run off of two AA batteries. Depending on the mixer,

What are some good, professional, LED lights that can be used on a tripod stand to light up a podium across a room?
by Shaun Kendall 5 years ago
The lights just need to be able to light up a podium from about 30-50 feet away. I'm not really needing programmable colors or anything like that, but if they can do colors as well as white, that's fi
Re: What are some good, professional, LED lights that can be used on a tripod stand to light up a podium across a room?
by Shaun Kendall 5 years ago
Thanks for your responses, Mark. I thought maybe the LED lighting technology was to the point that you could get a similar priced light to something like a Source 4. It sounds like I'd still be better

That's true, but I currently record from two separate mics (one on the groom and one on the pastor) to two separate cameras, as well as a shotgun on each camera. I will make that a top priority as far

Working with Non-Actor Actors

I've been told many times that you should not read a line for talent, unless it's a child, because most actors and actresses resent this it. But what about "non-actors", such as an employee of the bus
