A Ron Hynes Documentary (that I worked on)

I worked as the sound recordist for the upcoming feature-length documentary, Ron Hynes: The Man of a Thousand Songs. We wrapped a few weeks ago and the film is due out sometime in the fall of 2010.

I’m eager to see how the final cut comes together. There were more than a few moments during the shoot when we knew something extraordinary was happening — I think the film will tell a compelling story no matter what. It was a pleasure to get to know Ron and to work with director Bill MacGillivray and everyone on the crew. I’d work with any of them again any day. It’s the best experience I’ve had working in film.

Updates on the film can be found on Facebook, MySpace and at TheManOfAThousandSongs.com.

If you don’t know Ron Hynes, here’s his Wikipedia entry, his website and his MySpace page.
