sE Reflexion Filter

I first read about the sE Reflexion Filter several years ago in the British magazine Sound On Sound. It seemed like a really neat product but as I deal mostly with the recording of location sound for film and television I had no immediate application for it and hence dismissed the idea of purchasing one.   Fast forward 6 years, I get a call from a firm I do a lot of corporate work with.

This particular CEO was a very busy guy and insisted on doing the lines at the company's...

For those not familiar with the Cinela Piano mount please visit my article titled "Windjammers" posted on my Blog. The seminar began...

I was nominated for a Canadian Screen Award for Best Sound in an Information/Documentary Program or Series for "Museum Secrets", "The Imperial War Museum" episode.

(It was one of those winter gigs that...

It's a commonly question we are asked: Galleries These are single page collections of images that when clicked will open in lightbox to display the images you've chosen to upload / attach to that Page/Post. There is no pagination and you cannot assign links to Gallery images so when clicked opens in a new page. At least not when using one of our 5 customized galleries in KingSize.
