Wilhelm the Ubiquitous

This has been making the rounds again lately. If you've never heard of it, you've most definitely heard it. Known as the Wilhelm, it is one of the most famous screams in movie sound history. You can read more about its history at Hollywood Lost and Found.

This is merely a placeholder.

Eventually, I will begin to post links to articles, tutorials, and news releases concerning production and post-production audio for film and television. As this blog is a glorified hobby, one shouldn't expect regular postings.

About me: I'm lucky enough to get by doing production audio for a living. The paying gigs are mainly reality TV, infomercials, TV docs, industrials and corporate videos. The unpaid are short films, both DV and 16mm, and the occasional indie feature.

Being somewhat new-ish to the pro side of things, I certainly don't know the all the answers. When I find a link to someone who does, I'll gladly post it, and I welcome submissions from all of you crazy kids.

And, well, there you have it. Use in a well ventilated area. :)
