Here Comes the Boom

Once Upon a Time on the set

Boom Operator Jason Lecky was sporting an exceptionally fuzzy, new boom mic on set this day. What’s different about it? He said the Sound Department was testing the new mic to see how it performed in weather conditions typical to shooting outside in Vancouver: wind, rain, etc. Oh, and it’s heavier. So, bigger biceps then, I wondered, while flexing mine? "No," he said, with a laugh. "More like this," as he hunched himself forward as if he was carrying a huge weight.
