CAS Journal – Andy Nelson

The latest CAS journal (2014 Winter) is now online and one part I highly reccomend all sound editors & designers read is an interview by Karol Urban with re-recording mixer Andy Nelson, motivated by his receiving the CAS Career Achievement Award. Andy is full of sage advice, and it is fascinating to read of his approach & philosophy to film mixes, especially towards the end of the interview.

CAS Journal

The issue also has an invaluable article on dub stage etiquette & relationships, as well as handy advice as to gauging potential issues (& allocating time accordingly) via the music editor.
Have a read here

But I also didn’t realise all past issues of the CAS journal are available online here

> working remotely? some invaluable tips (although having to have a chat app running at all times sounds like a permanent distraction. I used to have ichat running all day, to be available to talk to other people working on current film project, but I grew to hate it – its basically a distraction… and I am more productive via monotasking)

 

> Short films are such fun to work on, but this is interesting re Oscars & short films this year

 

> interesting new platform & model for supporting artists, musicians, film makers & other content creators Patreon (thank Rene)

 

 

 

> ever wondered why the drummer in The Muppets was called animal? Science, that’s why (thanks Michael!)

 

> Johnny Greenwood and modes of limited transposition

 

> Fascinating read: attempting to find the source of the ska (& later reggae) chop on the offbeat

 

> great photo series, of grandparents & their grandkids side by side… but then they swap clothes

 

> Interesting chord explorer Max for LIVE plug

 

> Do you ever ACTUALLY USE CAPSLOCK? I CAN NOT REMEMBER A SINGLE TIME THAT I HAVE, BUT SOMETIMES IT ACCICDENTALLY GETS LEFT ON AND THEN IT SEEMS LIKE I’M SHOUTING!!!! Turns out it is incredibly easy to disable it in OSX

A visitor checking out my Firstman synth, shot today Feb 19th with Canon 5DmkIII and 100mm macro lens…

BTW does anyone in NZ have a reccomendation for a good synth tech, who might have a look at the Firstman for me? It was dead when I bought it & I’ve had someone have a look at it, but we only got so far without a circuit diagram (got it to power up but no sound) – I have a PDF of circuit for it now… email me?
