Gig Diary – Fruit of the Loom

Sometimes on my production sound gigs, I get to learn new things and meet very interesting people. Leatrice Eiseman is one of those.

I had the pleasure of working as a sound mixer for this Hue For You project for Fruit of the Loom featuring Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. The project was produced by Plus Productions out of Boulder Colorado. We shot the videos all in one day at the Bainbridge Art Museum back on February 24th, 2016.

Sometimes my job allows me to learn new things and meet people I otherwise might not meet. It is always a pleasure to visit Bainbridge.

Hue for You – Colors of Confidence

Hue for You – Colors of Attraction

Leatrice is an amazingly informative woman. Although I was primarily focussed on recording great audio, it was great to think about color in a new and interesting way. It was a pleasure to work with director/DP Steve Capstick, producer Nathan Fulbrecht and fellow locals, gaffer Ryan Middleton and PA Katheryn Goddard. The trip over on the Washigton State Ferry was a joy.

Here is a link to Leatrice Eiseman’s website. If you need a sound mixer for your corporate, documentary or narrative project please get in touch. I have some state of the art sound gear, a nice resume, am a problem solver and a great addition to the community on set. At least in my own humble opinion, (I’m sure my mom would agree as well).

Running Camera for Track Meets at UW’s Dempsey Center

Update: Feb 24- Brooks PR High School Invite Track Meet

Two weeks ago I was running camera at the Dempsey Indoor facility for the Huskey Indoor Classic. This weekend I continue the adventure for the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation indoor Track and Field meet. The long shifts behind the camera are grueling. But the excitement of helping cover these talented young athletes is exhilarating. Some of the most talented in the country.

I’ve included some images from the event, taken with my iPhone 5 and edited with the Camera Awesome App from Smug Mug. Enjoy!

Here is a link to find out more about the race. Or potentially view it live on Feb 23th. On Feb 24th I will also be helping stream the Brooks Invitational featuring some of the best High School track athletes in the Nation. Live video stream at and archives from Flotrack.

The project was set up by the folks at Northwest Audio Visual Productions out of Portland Oregon. You can like there Facebook page here. I took a few more fun photos. I have to get up early for day two on Saturday. But come back soon. They will be here.
