Interview with Michael The Sound Guy: Justin Lacroix is a production sound mixer based out of southern Maine. He’s worked on the reality TV show Survivor and on projects for MTV, Nat Geo, HBO and Vice. He uses a Sound Devices 633 mixer/recorder, Lectrosonics SRc wireless receivers, Lectrosonics SMWBs and SMDWBs wireless transmitters, Sanken COS-11 lav mics, Sennheiser 416 shotgun mics and Sennheiser MKH-50 for interiors. Justin also uses Tentacle Sync time code boxes.
During this week-long shoot in Japan, we went from Tokyo to Okayama which included the hottest day in Japan’s recorded history at 106 degrees (41.1 Celsius). I have invested in the best gear on the market because it can withstand the change in environment – even with extreme temperatures and high humidity in rural Japan on a fishing boat my equipment functioned flawlessly.
