Citizen Doug records Muhammad Ali’s friend George Foreman for NBC Nightly News


The always gracious George Foreman spoke to NBC Nightly News at the death of his friend Muhammad Ali at his home in Huffman, Texas . Thanks to Kurt Kuykendall of KKMedia for the hire.
Foreman Ali
I have had the pleasure of working with Pastor Foreman on several occasions including In Depth with Graham Bensinger: George Foreman

This was a satellite truck feed with SDI audio embed from the camera, IFB and intercom, all in a fifteen minute setup. The palatial mansion foyer is an all white marble entry with a round, domed sky lit atrium immediately adjacent, yielding a significant reverb time in combination with Foreman’s booming voice.

Citizen Doug Records 360 Virtual Reality Audio for Spike at Bellator 149

Use the YouTube app on your mobile device. Douglas Robertson provided location audio services as recordist for Bellator and Spike’s first venture into virtual reality. Sound was recorded at the Toyota Center on February 19, 2016. You’ll see a lot of Houston sound pros in the video supporting the traditional coverage, but not me. This project was recorded while a live ‘linear’ traditional broadcast and fight event was in progress. Five dressing rooms and one mobile camera were covered with support for 360 GoPro arrays. Tracking was recorded to Avid Pro Tools and Sound Devices 633 via Behringer X32 and Audinate DANTE, and with time code support. Thanks to GoToTeam for the hire!

During the shoot there was a parade of executives, top card fighters, and a Bloomberg news crew were floating through.

Here’s an interesting discussion of virtual mic arrays, none of which were used on this project.

Check out Citizen Doug’s other 360 projects!

Location Production Audio Mixer for Unsung H Town

Had a lot of fun and picked up some firsthand H Town lore doing the Houston interviews (backdrop sitdowns) and B-roll including the rather sly capture of the H Town studio session with Joel Hinrichs shooting for GoToTeam for Unsung Htown. It is always an honor to meet the families and visit the homes and neighborhoods of any Houston Artist.

Location Sound Recording and Mixing Expanded!

Photo Jan 17, 4 33 21 PM

X-DANTE_P0AZR_PFI1-I_PAs part of Citizen Doug’s Behringer X-32 package, we now have an SD16 in addition to an S16, combined with 32 channels of 2-way transformer isolated split and up to 300 ft of Cat-5 AES50 snake. Combined with the DANTE card, DANTE Via and ProTools, we can now capture each channel with backup recording of a concert,  event, conference, reality cast, political rally, webcast, whatever, without harming the house mixer, or we can provide a mix.

The SD16 has already made several appearances just because it’s so much easier to run a single network cable then make home runs from video land to the mixer.

And with the iPad mixer control app, most trouble shooting, setup, room tuning and routing jobs are completed without all the running back and forth. This is a well though out and well implemented system.

Audio for Webcasting, APM Works 2016

Photo Feb 04, 5 22 11 PMMy mom called me the other day and asked me what I was working on. I told her lately a lot of wedcasts. They have become a growth segment of my business. She asked, “What does that mean?” The very next day I was working for a new client, APM, a wholly owned subsidiary of an old client, GE. Both of these are served through Flying Colors and Sirius Video. The general public doesn’t usually get to see these because they are either highly proprietary or have registration requirements for viewing.

Photo Feb 04, 12 09 47 PM

A typical webcast audio setup fits on one cart

Called townhalls, all hands meetings, quarterly reports, product launches, press conferences, they may not be very stimulating viewing for a general audience, but these multi billion or million dollar corporations take them very seriously because they know that their investors are watching closely as well as the business press. They can be single camera (this event), multi camera (switched or posted), or audio only events.

From an audio point of view, short of television event broadcasting, they represent the greatest combination of the various crafts that I provide. Skills include, broadcasting, public-address (PA) systems, high wireless channel counts, two way video and telephony feedsand press pool feeds, intercom, remote feeds, IFB, single and multi camera synchronization and audio support. APM was wonderfully prepared, hospitable, and  pleasant to work with. Still these type assignments may have all the challenge and chaos that executive relations, last minute changes, large audiences, and short setup times can often bring. If you want to know the value of the words you are passing along, just wait for that CEO you just put a microphone on to state the annual profit number and the CFO next after him say the annual earnings. Then look at the stock price of the company before and after the show. This is why people call Citizen Doug.

Some of the clients I have done this kind of audio for:

Microsoft, NFL Films, The Houston Texans, GE, Fidelity Investments, HP, Sysco Foods, Wayne Fueling Systems, APM, Neighbors Emergency Care, Points of Light Foundation, Houston First , Expo Expo, IATSE Local 51

Location audio for KHOU’s “Buffalo Bayou Park, Where Houston Begins”


Photo Aug 17, 9 39 40 AM 300My family has had a long association with Buffalo Bayou between Shepherd Drive and Sabine St, so it was neat to be asked to work a day with my location sound kit doing field interviews on KHOU’s Buffalo Bayou Park Where Houston Begins, ably directed by David Norton. The majority of the dialogue was done by my longtime friend Erik Kolflat (Disclosure: neither of us did the sound edit or post.) The piece is a comprehensive tour of Buffalo Bayou Park and covers the opening day ceremonies and the special features of the park. The piece is hosted by Chita Johnson. Videography by Trent Wittenbach. There is also a Buffalo Bayou Guide App for iPhone and Android.
