If you are unsure what equipment is right for you or your project, let our team of highly experienced sound professionals guide you. With over 20 years of hands on experience we can assist with sound design, renting the right equipment, and/or choosing the best gear to purchase to fit your needs.
With so many camera formats and shooting styles it is critical that your sound team is knowledgeable AND flexible. We love to talk about sound and build equipment. Nothing makes us happier than finding a solution to a difficult environment. No really, we get giddy, it’s pretty cute.
One of the perks of hiring Stickman Sound for your audio needs is our ability to match a freelancer with your project. We have dozens of mixers on speed dial and most of them share their calendars with us. It’s kind of like Charlie’s Angels around here, but with sound mixers, and smart phones, and…okay, it’s not really like Charlie’s Angel’s except for the part where Kristel really wants a Western Electric Speakerphone on her desk.
Stickman does the vetting for you. We know what our mixers are capable of and we know where they shine. Most of them have worked with Fernando for years and the new ones are put through the paces in our shop. We test their skills, knowledge of the gear, and occasionally their patience, and we don’t send anyone out that we don’t stand behind 100%.
Another bonus to hiring a freelancer through us is support. We support our freelancers any way we can. Gear problem? We can add another mind to troubleshooting. Still not fixed? We can bring a replacement if there’s not already one in the bag* (*common laws of physics and logistics apply). Our mixers know how to get a hold of us and aren’t afraid to pick up a phone. They know we have their back and in return they help make us look good.
We love sound equipment. We have Lectro and Zaxcom a-plenty! We have Sound Devices galore! You want microphones? We have…well, a lot more than 20. Can you see where we are going with this? Our inventory is full of Sound Devices recorder/mixers, Lectrosonics transmitters and receivers, Lectrosonics producer listens, Sennheiser shotgun microphones, Zaxcom camera hops, Riedel intercom systems, and an array of consoles. Honestly, we make Ariel look like an amatuer collector.
Whether you are doing a documentary focussing on one individual, a reality show with twenty plus contestants and 15 camera crews, a commercial, or a film shoot, we can design and build an equipment package that will not only meets your needs but will keep your show running smoother. Stickman can provide “run and gun” equipment packages as well as Fly Pack systems that can be built almost anywhere. Each project is unique in it’s own way and we specialize in making sure the design of your equipment package flows with the style of production you’re doing in the field.
All of our gear is tested and assembled in our shop before going out into the field. Stickman builds each kit specifically for every project and we pride ourselves on how we deliver our gear. We also provide support for our equipment so if there are any issues we aim to solve them as swiftly as possible.
