Los Angeles, CA (December 19, 2003)–Production mixer Glenn Berkovitz, C.A.S., recently employed the new Sanken CS-1 Short Shotgun microphone for the hit ABC series Karen Sisco.
“We used the CS-1 for dialogue inside a van,” explained Berkovitz. “We were using my favorite, the Sanken CS-3e shotgun, for exteriors but found ourselves in really cramped quarters and I swapped it for the CS-1. This new Sanken short shotgun worked perfectly and the dialogue from the two mics matched beautifully.”
Carla Gugino stars as a tenacious United States marshal on Miami’s Gold Coast in Karen Sisco. As she pursues dangerous fugitives from the law, the title character must navigate her way from the dark underbelly of South Beach nightlife to the sunshine and glitz of Palm Beach highlife.
“Both the CS-1 and the CS-3e have a nice targeted range without being too pinpointy like a hypercardioid shotgun where the mic really has to be on a very tight target,” added Berkovitz. “The Sanken shotguns are ideal for episodic TV, film, and ENG production sound.” For more information, contact Sanken’s distributor, plus24.
