CINCINNATI, Ohio — Celebrated actor and director George Clooney recently spent several months in Ohio and Michigan shooting scenes for The Ides of March, a new film scheduled to premiere later this year. Both starring and directed by Clooney, The Ides of March is based on Beau Willimon’s play, Farragut North, about a governor campaigning in the presidential primaries.

Bill Deavers of Cincinnati-based Loud & Clear, Inc. was hired by the film’s production team to serve as a political consultant and provide sound reinforcement for the pivotal Democratic debate scene, which was filmed in early March at Miami University’s Hall Auditorium in Oxford, Ohio. As he had done for many “real” presidents and presidential contenders in the past, Deavers chose to specify an L-ACOUSTICS system for the event. more
