Old Fashion Mixed by Marlowe Taylor, CAS Sound Mixer!

Ok, Wow I haven’t had a chance at all in 2013 or 2014 to post anything! I m very sorry, yes i mixed a lot of movies last year, so far a record high(8). But anyway that’s another blog conversation, lol! It was a wonderful union  working year!!!

 

But lets talk about the movie Old fashion directed by Rik Swartzwelder and shot in Southern Ohio in a very very small town! It was a very cool experience for me, because i had to do all the wiring of the lavs and things on the talent plus plant mics and other tricks, which was fine until i realize the director had to play the lead role in the film due to unforseen circumstances,,,!!! Soooooo Holy smokes, your kidding me right, now there is no room for mistakes right!! You called it, so lets just add to my already nervousness to mix at the cart and run out to adjust wires, boy ohhhh boyeeee, lol! Well as you can imagine i lived up to my rep for being a Good Sound Mixer and it went off without a hitch, built a wonderful relationship with the producers and the director and was able to help with voice over work and all the ADR needed to really add more life to the scenes in the near future. Lets talk about the adr session for a minute, i understand why most sound mixers just stick with doing sound on set and not stepping into the post world especially if it’s a film you mixed and you get a call about ADR!! You cringe like what did i do wrong , all man i thought i covered this and that, adr for whattttttttttttt?? Rik  Swartzwelder marlowe Taylor Studio 76

Yep the director is chilling watching his monitor!(up top)

 

 

 

 

 

 

This session proved that Adr isn’t all about what the mixer did wrong or planes, trains and lawnmowers being to loud, sometimes there is dialog that needs to be added or voice over from the characters thoughts, or a few quick lines when the camera cuts behinds the actor head and you can slip in a few extra words that just make the scene jump right at you emotionally!!! Wow , what do you know, this is how Adr is also used, i have to tell you i felt 1 million times better,, good grief, hahah lol! This was one of the most exciting ADR sessions i have ever had and the cast that stop by were all amazing and like family! It was all smiles and lots ,, lots and lotsssssss of laughing that week! I have to say Rik is an awesome director and I pray to mix his next big adventure as well! Speaking of big adventure, check this out Old fashion the feature has been released Valentines Day Weekend 2015 and for a small indie film only  in select theaters it reached $1.1 Million Dollars at the box Office and has now gotten selected to open in 100 more major cinema’s. Old fashion is a true love story of how relationships come to life and should take their time to blossom which is the grounds for a strong and lasting marriage with a prosperous future!!!

Yes he is mic'sand boom in the ADR booth for his added ghost lines while his head is turned to build the scene! so awesome

Yes he is mic’s and boom in the ADR booth for his added ghost lines while his head is turned to build the scene! so awesome

Underdogs the Movie is here!

Underdogs the movie is available now 2014! Marlowe Taylor Sound mixer

Ok, if you didn’t know, Underdogs the movie is finally out and available for purchase. It is at both Best Buy and Walmart for only $9.96!! That’s  amazing price for a such a good movie which sold out every night of its screening at the Cleveland Film Festival  “CFF” and in Akron, Ohio leaving standing room only.  I just can’t begin to tell you how amazing it was to be the Locations Sound Mixer for this  movie. It was exciting and full of energy ranging from cheerleaders and pump up football players tackling and running and the director needing my mega phone to talk over the crowds screaming! How did i mic all this stuff, well sometimes i ask myself that same question, lets say it had some non repairable outcomes, but i did get the audio and that’s the most important part,lol!!! I chose to capture the stadium crowd cheering and yelling with stereo schoeps mic on x/y set up,  hidden plant mics on certain benches throughout the stadium , 1 senheiser mkh60 and mkh 70 all  recording  8 tracks of audio at one time using my  Zaxcom Deva recorder and 4 Smqv letrosonics wireless transmitters. It was a fun and awesome sound and you can hear it in the film ,my actual location recording of the real fans reactions and stomping their feet,so digital!
This movie is full of major cast including all time great  NFL champ Joe Namath, head coach played by D.B. Sweeney, quarter back played by Logan Huffman and Maddie Hasson his possible love interest. Other actors include William Mapother, Richard Portnow, Maddie Hasson, Keith Loneker jr and Natalie Imbruglia plus many more to name, just get the movie and you will see.
It’s a must see and enjoyable Pg13 rated film, Underdogs was the first film i learned i had to upgrade my antenna’s to reach across the football fields and further into the beyond,,lol. There was a lot of challenges and that’s why i was excited everyday onset! So cool of film to be part of once again with such a warm hollywood cast , including my kool photos with Joe wearing his super bowl ring which was amazing.
Joe Namath and Marlowe Taylor with NFL championship ring on my hand!

Yeah i am wearing Joe Namath super bowl ring! awesome, so digital

The movie was directed by Doug Dearth who did a extraordinary job making this film one of the most talked about movies in Ohio to this very day! I have film crew folks  still bringing up Underdogs and how it was the best film and a must see movie, from story line, to struggle along side life’s frustrations from  being an Underdog at the bottom riding to the top as Joe Namath later explains in the film.
The film debuted at the Cleveland International Film Festival in April and won the Local Heroes Award for the best movie about or by Ohioans. I have to tell you, watching this film for the first time over the holiday was so refreshing and Digital, aka that means awesome if you’re not hip yet!
I have to say in closing we had so many locations, one of my favorites was mixing in this wonderful mansion with a custom-built indoor bowling alley and golf simulator suite! yes i said it, plus amazing indoor pool with waterfall rock wall and arcade, you dream of it and its there!
Check me out below in the photo, yeahhhhh!

Marlowe Taylor mixing in a mansion Underdogs the movie

I have to say shooting a scene with richard in the private 747 jet plane was so amazing, make sure you see the movie Underdogs its one heck of a good film with awesome actors and cool locations if you can’t tell from my few photo’s! So make it a Underdog year and join the club with a dvd!! It’s a must have in your collection!!! until next blog, Stay Digital folks!!!1

Dr. Marlowe Taylor Mixes Katherine Heigl Indie with
RF Venue Antennas
Katherine Heigl, Tom Wilkinson, and Linda Edmond are in Cleveland shooting the indie comedy “Jenny’s Wedding,” until the end of November. The mixer on set is veteran Dr. Marlowe “Mauly T” Taylor, a producer and sound mixer based in Cleveland and member of IATSE 209. Dr. Taylor chose to outfit his cart with RF Venue antennas for all the talent and crew wireless audio, and hasn’t looked back.
“The Diversity Fin and CP Beam are my superman antennas,” Taylor said. “These antennas have simplified some very complicated issues. We were having a lot of RF static and the signal strength was very low. We were basically running our previous antennas out on 50 to 75 feet of cable all the time. Plus we were getting attenuation with these long cable runs and had to use all sorts of boosters. It was getting crazy.”
Taylor is now using a Diversity Fin to receive the Lectrosonics Venue + UCR411 A HM plugs and talent packs on the “Jenny’s Wedding” set. A CP Beam pulls stereo from the Mix 12 and feeds to an ARRI Alexa via Senheiser IEM recievers. And he uses an additional CP Beam for the Lectrosonics T4 IMB com system used to communicate with the boom operator and crew. Taylor is also using a Zaxcom mix suite including Mix12 and Deva IV plus ZOOM H6 with Timecode safety.
The Diversity Fin is a hybrid antenna with one LPDA and one dipole element oriented at 90 degrees for optimum polarization diversity, and elimination of multi-path interference. The CP Beam is a high gain circularly polarized helical antenna that is lightweight and collapses for compact storage.
“Earlier we had a scene in a fire station,” Taylor continued. “Katherine and Tom were inside on the second floor, and I couldn’t get my cart up the stairs. I was able to raise my antennas up and shoot right through the brick wall without a problem, full strength. We started using both Diversity Fins and CP Beams rigged on a boom popped up 12 or 15 feet above the cart to get a clear shot to wherever they are. My cable just sits coiled up on the cart.”
Taylor has mixed countless features, docs, and TV shows, including the Sundance indie hit “Kings of Summer,” football feature “Underdogs,” and the 2014 made for TV movie “Love Finds You In Sugar Creek.” Dr. Taylor gets his title from PhD work at Ohio University, where he also received a Masters in sound. In addition to sound work, he has also taught at Cleveland State University.
Dr. Taylor was introduced to the RF Venue line by Pro Sound’s Rich Topham. “And let me tell you,” Taylor said. “For the ‘Underdogs’ football movie we made with Joe Namath using the RF Venue antennas, all the audio went back to L.A., and the director and post mixer told us that 99% made it into the final film. They needed almost no ADR and said it was the cleanest and sharpest audio they’ve ever had. They actually thought I was a mixer from California, not from Ohio!”

“3 Day Test” Directed by Corbin Bernsen. With Megyn Price, Corbin Bernsen, George Newbern, Taylor Spreitler

"3 Day Test" Actress Megyn said something funny, I bust out luaghing!!LOL

I haven’t had a chance to blog in a while, it has been a very Hollywood fun filled year for me as a Locations Sound Mixer!!! Yeahhh, i am so please to have met so many great and super cool folks among our film crew from all parts of the world. Some have been grumpy and allot very happy, film sets brings the best out of every one when it comes to doing your job with long hours ahead of you, in the end at the wrap party everyone is smiling and laughing about

Megyn Price" So COOL"

We would Laugh all the time on set of "3 Day Test"!

things, just like family. I wanted to talk about the feature i mixed for actor director Corbin Bernsen called “3 Day Test” which debut top of this year. It was a funny family driven feature where the dad Martin  played by George Newbern comes up with the idea of isolating his entire  family from the outside world for 3 days of endurance to survive off of nothing, yes nothing!!! No water, no electric,  no gas for 3 days never to leave the house right at christmas time in the winter< and yes i said no gas which means noooooo heat and don’t flush to much either, hahah lol! The mother was played by Megyn Price  and oldest daughter Taylor Spreitler along with little sister Francesca Capaldi and little brother Aidan Potter. This feature was difficult for sound because the actors had to dress in layers of coats and hats and under garments to play the roles, and how can you mic a kid with layers on, wuuu weee it was tough. But in the end  my team knocked it out and we finished with success and it turned out great.

 

I am very happy i had the scheops cmc series 4 with interchangeable heads and senheiser mkh 70, we had some challenging situations outside which is where the 70 shines, even for the shouting scene where corbin is yelling about the toilet hitting the dads car in the movie, it captured his dialog  perfectly at 35feet away. I believe you have to choose the correct microphones when your on set, it really helps your job go allot smoother.  Trust me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

When you have a chance, please check out the film, it was so cool to catch the premiere , one was in LA and Akron Ohio. While Corbin was here i had the pleasure of working with him again on another project, I hope he returns soon! So check it out folks, “3 Day Test” directed by Corbin Bernsen with plenty of cool  hollywood stars, what a pleasure!  My favorite actor had to be Francesca Capaldi, she was wonderful and full of energy everyday, with smiles and all! She is currently  on the show “Dog with A blog”, so check her out. I have to give a super shout out to Megyn Price for all her comfort during the stress out moments onset, she made my day every time , check her out she is on “Rules of Engagement“  on tv now.

 

see you guys later,,,,, on the next cool movie set!

Toy's House deal with CBS Films 2013/Studio76

cool cast of Toy's House/Studio76

Three days after CBS Films acquired domestic rights to Toy’s House at the Sundance Film Festival, QED International has scooped up non-North American rights to the coming-of-age comedy. It’s the first deal for John Hegeman, the former New Regency marketing boss who was appointed QED’s president of worldwide marketing and acquisitions just ahead of Sundance. Park City was his first task with the new title. Here’s today’s release on Toy’s House:

LOS ANGELES (January 25, 2013)  – QED International has acquired international distribution rights to TOY’S HOUSE, it was announced today by Worldwide President of Marketing and Acquisitions John Hegeman. Under the agreement, QED will distribute TOY’S HOUSE in all markets outside North America. The film premiered to rave reviews at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and has just been picked up for US distribution by CBS Films which is eyeing a 2013 release date.

Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts from a screenplay by Chris Galletta, TOY’S HOUSE follows three teenage boys as they head into the wilderness with a plan to build a house and live off the land. The film marks the feature directorial debut of Vogt-Roberts and stars Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, Moises Arias, Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Alison Brie, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Erin Moriarty, Marc Evan Jackson, Thomas Middleditch and Tony Hale. Tyler Davidson of Low Spark Films, Peter Saraf of Big Beach and John Hodges are the producers with Richard Rothfeld and Jordan Vogt-Roberts serving as executive producers.

“QED shares our belief that comedy can be hilarious while at the same time beautiful, cinematic and full of heart, and we can’t imagine a better international partner for our film,” director Jordan Vogt-Roberts said. “They have consistently brought compelling entertainment from great filmmakers to the worldwide market, and after hitting big with critics and audiences at Sundance, TOY’S HOUSE is a great addition to their lineup.”

“As QED continues to expand its global footprint, we’re looking for outstanding filmmakers whose movies have a strong international upside, and Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ exciting directorial debut fits the bill perfectly,” Hegeman said. “Our team at Sundance was completely captivated by TOY’S HOUSE, and our international sales group looks forward to implementing a global roll-out for this hilarious and affecting film.”
The deal with QED was negotiated by QED VP of International Sales John Friedberg. John Sloss and Cinetic Media repped the filmmakers.

TOY’S HOUSE will be part of QED’s Berlin sales slate which also includes TEN, directed by David Ayer and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger; the romantic comedy FADING GIGOLO, directed by John Turturro and starring Turturro and Woody Allen; the romantic comedy ARE WE OFFICIALLY DATING? starring Zac Efron and Imogen Poots; and Mac Carter’s supernatural thriller HAUNT starring Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver.

Toy’s House

By John Anderson

Nick Robinson, Moises Arias and Gabriel Basso in “Toy’s House”

A Low Spark Films presentation of a Big Beach/Low Spark Films production. Produced by Tyler Davidson, Peter Saraf, John Hodges. Executive producers, Richard Rothfeld, Jordan Vogt-Roberts. Co-producer, Robert Ruggeri. Co-executive producers, Andrew Brickman, Michael Razewski, Jeffrey A. Green, Susan Wasserman, Allan Marks, Alyson Winick. Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts. Screenplay, Chris Galletta.

With: Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, Moises Arias, Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Alison Brie, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Erin Moriarty, Eugene Cordero, Gillian Vigman, Marc Evan Jackson.
Although it acknowledges that a real world may, in fact, exist, “Toy’s House,” Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ debut feature, is a full-on fairy tale, and one that could win plenty of friends with its absurdist, caustically funny take on adolescent agitation. The fantastical premise is far-fetched — three pals, sick of their parents, build their own house in the woods and learn, with no lasting damage, how not to survive — but nothing else in Chris Galletta’s script can be taken too seriously, either. Still, there are enough laughs and bright performances that neither viewers nor distribs will likely mind.
Anyone who’s been a teenager will see that Joe Toy (Nick Robertson) is being driven mad by his widowed father, Frank (Nick Offerman, “Parks & Recreation”), who has apparently forgotten how excruciating it might be for an adolescent boy to have his father tell the girl he loves (Kelly, played by Erin Moriarty) that he can’t talk now, because he’s grounded and has to go to bed at 7:30.

But Frank is too likable (Offerman’s grumpiness is quite charming) to provoke so much unrest that Joe would really want to live in the woods. The family unit is slightly dysfunctional, but affectionate: Frank even tolerates Colin (Eugene Cordero), the painfully inappropriate boyfriend of daughter Heather (a terrific Alison Brie). And he doesn’t get that mad when Joe scares off Frank’s own new girlfriend (Gillian Vigman).

A better motivation exists for Joe’s best friend, Patrick (Gabriel Basso), whose noodgy parents (Megan Mullally, Marc Evan Jackson) would test the patience of the Dalai Lama. When Joe finds a pristine spot in the woods near their suburban enclave, he decides that he, Patrick and their strange little non sequitur-spouting friend Biaggio (Moises Arias) will all leave home, build their own house, become men and live in the woods. Patrick and Biaggio agree. Luckily, there’s a Boston Market nearby.

Vogt-Roberts, who has worked mainly in TV (“Mash Up,” “Funny or Die,” “Single Dads”), also made the very smart short film “Successful Alcoholics” in 2010. Like a lot of television comedy, “Toy’s House” is much more interested in the laughs that can be mined from character rather than plot. Galletta’s script, Vogt-Roberts’ direction and the distinctive play of the actors, notably Offerman and Mullally, lets the viewer know who everyone is right away, and the gag lines flow.

Belief, of course, has to be suspended. The spot the boys live in can’t be more than a mile or two from their homes; the most incompetent police officer, like the one played by the reliable Mary Lynn Rajskub, would find these kids in about an hour. Their friends even come to visit them — including Kelly, who makes a play for Patrick, thus sending Joe and their friendship over the edge.

While a movie with the straining-for-wordplay title of “Toy’s House” isn’t even pretending to be serious, the film has real visual chops; at the beginning, the camera movement, the unusual framing and the editing suggest the untidy workings of an unstructured adolescent mind. Later, matters turn a bit grimmer, but not so much as to totally wreck the mood.

Tech credits are tops, with Ross Riege’s lensing well supported by Ryan Putz, Marlowe Taylor and William McGuigan’s soundwork.

I am just sooo pumped right now, sorry, this camera operates looks and feels like a traditional video camera, not to  heavy, layout is  kool, allot of features and switches, (make sure to take the manual with you okkk, it never hurts to cover your but when your out shooting in case you get stuck on a menu or you wanted  to vari your shooting speeds for that really glass slow motion look, of the fly girl walking byy, cum on fellahzz you no what ahmm talking about,lol!!) But really, back to the fun side,,,, The  koolest feature is  the fact that this loaded flyyyyHD camera  gives you 35mm like DOF( Depth of Field ) for its price  like a HDSLR and it accepts 35mm still or PL mount lenses.

maulyt break down of Depth of Field just as a refresher for those who are getting started, its all good! read this  so your familiar with some jargon!

* ***DOF=  is a distance range in which objects appear to be in focus. Deep DOF means more of the scene will appear in focus, shallow DOF means the range will be smaller and objects closer or further will appear blurred. Also known as selective focus, it’s artfully used by DPs to naturally draw the viewers’ attentions to the primary subject****

AF-100 camera is so flyy that you can shoot in very low light and crank it adjusting to get more light in and the image really doesn’t break up in the dark!  You still can see, its like amazing! so you don’t need a ton light if your budget doesn’t call for it, try and rock allot of daylight with bounce cards and such, but this camera is my next toyyy! For commercials, music video,documentary, clubs shows/performances this is the winner hands down for me anyway! I have supplied 2links 1 in Hd hi res and other in little lower res to show you what this cameras and image quality is made of when your counting on it! Just be smart with your locations and get your film mind rolling ,a good dp can really take this camera there for you cinematically  and bring to life what your hoping to “capture”,, itz all about the ,motion!!! no punn intended!!! thankz to Capture Motion, my man john Lorince is a great filmmaker!

Mannn i promise you will love it, reallllllly luvvvvv it! This is a all out Professional Film-like Digital Camcorder with all the features we expect to have on a camera, like  white balance,zebra stripes, cine-gamma settings, time-code recording, balanced XLR inputs with Phantom Power, 48-kHz/16-bit two-channel audio recording which sounds very good, trust me with a headphone out! It can record at 1920 x 1080 full HD images highest seting  recording on SDXC cards which are really cheap! I didn’t mean to get all serious on you with the jargon and stuff, but in closing you can get a 16gb card for like $30 bukz and shoot at the highest ph setting 1920 x 1080 for about *90 minutes of time! wowwwwwwwww, you can jus t throw in more cards and shoot all dayyyyyy long , are you kidding me!  So kool, anyway , before i start getting more detail seroius,and going over more features,  this   camera is mos def worth you checking out, besides the red one, or the clumsiness feel of the cannon 5d,,,,,,,, consider the Panasonic AF-100 , you cant go wrong! please hit me with questions or comments, if you have shot with this camera, let me know what your experience were like, all ite!!!,

I like the 3.45 inch lcd display with brilliant definition and awesome colors, inputs and outputs hdmi , usb 2.0, AV out, index, Headphones, hd/sdi and the  ability to connect several manufacturers lenses to the camera with an adapter,i mean wow!! And no stress on shooting storage like you would have with the red or cannon, cheap and it goes a long way without worrying bout your shooting ratio!!! I could go onnnn an onnnnnnnnnnnn  for dayzzzzzzz talking about the af-100,, sorry, i am rambling again, just sooo pumped!
