Erin Fisher Wright “Salynkas Blues” at KUHT 4-29-04

Erin Fisher Wright performs her jazz composition for two basses “Salynkas Blues” at KUHT 4-29-04. With David Craig acoustic bass and David Parker drums. I probably met Erin and David Parker at their regular gig at the River on Montrose with this band. David Craig graduated from HSPVA two years after me.

I am still blessed to work with Erin and John Calderon on occasion at The Bridge Fellowship In Sugarland, TX.

Case Study II Radio Appearance Audio: Drive Houston Home: With the Rod Ryan Show at 94.5 The Buzz


The crew followed Justin Furstenfeld of Blue October to Rod Ryan’s radio show on iHeartRadio’s 94.5 the Buzz the first day that Don McGill Toyota gave away a car as part of their Drive Houston Home campaign. Audio for video during a radio appearance is one of the many services Citizen Doug Productions can provide. Our experience with radio production, both in studio and on location provides insightful successful results that have little to no interruptive impact on the in-progress radio station partner.

A Sound Devices 633 and Lectrosonics package was used.

This event and social media campaign was produced for Don McGill Toyota through Fountain Forward by Moffett Productions

Case Study: Don McGill Toyota: Drive Houston Home with Justin Furstenfeld of Blue October

I’ve been building a rig capable of covering a music event and the BTS elements of the performers in a seamless way. This is the first time I have begun to see that potential. During this surprise car giveaway to a cancer patient by Don McGill Toyota, a day of ENG, a radio interview and appearances culminated in a secret attended performance by Justin Furstenfeld. At the end of the evening they gave away the car.

Three rigs were in play. A Sound Devices 633 and Lectrosonics package had all the lavs and handhelds in play iso recorded. A Pix 260 recorded the audience mics, all the wireless mics in and a PA feed. The digital PA system recorded a multitrack capture of the stage elements.

Bag Drop Car Audio for Don McGill Toyota Houston – High Up Highlander

Among the skills that must be mentioned is the bag drop. Often audio pros cannot safely ride in a vehicle and stay out of the shot. A common solution is to guess at the levels, pull the trigger and drop the bag in the car. This means that anything you get is very zen. This technique is not without its problems and things don’t always come out 100% perfect, but since the advent of the GoPro, talent driven cars have become a regular thing.

It was a hoot working with the Rockets Power Dancers. Don McGill Toyota is doing amazing things with this campaign. More to come!

Produced by Moffett Productions, this Social Media campaign was shot with two Sony FS7 and some GoPros. Location audio utilized Sound Devices 633 and Lectrosonics wireless.
