Together with your creative vision.

Because knowing is half the battle.
A project can be dead on arrival due to a lack of or absence of auditory spatial awareness. It takes a dedicated audiophile to make the most mundane visual an effective experience for the viewer and it all starts on day 1.
Every word and breathe count.
It takes a skilled sound engineer to know where to place a microphone on subject depending on the what they are wearing, the surrounding environments, and actions they are performing.
Attention to every atmosphere.
No space sounds the same and every space has two characters. It is key that every surrounding be captured properly. Not capturing the sound of a space correctly can result in hours of extra time in the post-production process.
Efficient. Orderly. Structured.
It is vital in the methodology of capturing sound on set that every file be named and categorized with the correct metadata to effectively save many hours in the post-production process.
Hear it all as it happens.
Be in the moment with what is being shot and truly feel what is being captured.
Experience in the process.
Accomplishing a professional recording is not just in the moment, it is in the knowing of what moment is to come and where it will go. Having knowledge of equipment and frequencies can save days of work in post-production.
And just like that, it's all in sync.²

And there when you want more.
Sometimes unique sounds are required for the sound design department. There is nothing that cannot be recorded.
