The GearNex geared camera head is already gaining plaudits from the film industry and was most recently endorsed by Director of Photography Robert Reed Altman, son of director Robert Altman, who says: “I fully endorse the new GearNex Head. I used the GearNex head on a Short film that I shot using the Canon 5d system. There is nothing better than a nice more

Soho audio facility Hackenbacker has been helping Peter Dickson, one of the UK’s most famous voices, to capture his trademark voice-over style while he is ‘on the road’.

With a voice that is so immediately recognisable, Peter is the first person TV producers and big name stars turn to when they need a voice that truly delivers. His dulcet tones are now well and truly cemented in the public conscience thanks to his work on Award-winning TV shows and stadium events like The X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent, Family Fortunes and The Paul O’Grady Show.

One drawback of being so busy is the amount of time Peter spends traveling, which means having to record voice-overs ‘on the hoof’.

“I have always been pretty successful at delivering a good vocal sound when on the road,? he explains. “It’s a bit of a black art. I have recorded more
