Emmy-nominated Production Sound Mixer Ronan Hill, currently on set for the third season of HBOs Game of Thrones, has once again tapped digital audio recorders from Sound Devices to help record dialogue and ambiance for the fast-paced dramatic series. The companys 788T recorder has become a mainstay in his cart-based and portable sound rigs.
Game of Thrones, a medieval fantasy television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels chronicling the violent dynastic struggles among several noble families for control of the Iron Throne. With a character count of more than 300, a typical Game of Thrones scene can have more than 10 principal characters speaking. In order to keep ADR to a minimum, Hill is tasked with capturing all the dialogue on location as well as recording ambiance.
