Prague, Czech Republic (March 21, 2014)—Radim Hladík, a location sound engineer, sound editor, mixer, and sound designer based in Prague, used Lectrosonics Digital Hybrid Wireless technology on The Don Juans, a new feature film loosely based on the opera Don Giovanni.
The film, a comedy about sex, love and infidelity by Oscar-winning Czech director Jiri Menzel, stars Jan Hartl, Libuse Safránková and Martin Huba. Hladík handled both location and post production audio for the MediaPro Pictures and TV Nova film project.
Hladík was tasked with a myriad of audio production responsibilities on The Don Juans, including ADR, Foley, sound design and mixing. All location sound for the film was collected using a combination of six Lectrosonics SMQV super miniature beltpack transmitters and a pair of HM plug-on transmitters.
On the receiving side of the equation, Hladík used the Lectrosonics Octopack portable multicoupler outfitted with four SRb dual channel slot mount ENG receivers. This system was augmented by the use of Lectrosonics ALP500 log periodic dipole array antennas, the RM remote, and the LectroRM app for Apple’s iOS-based smartphone.
All of the Lectrosonics equipment used on The Don Juans was procured through Bystrouka s.r.o. in Prague.
