, for his part, invited several colleagues for a few demos and for sharing his impressions after the shoot of Diane Kurys film C'est le métier qui rentre
(You learn from your mistakes

, fearless sound mixer, is working on a made-for-tv series since mid-May. He is helped, when he has trouble "tying the belly", by Quentin, our preparator, and by Pascal Grillère, software engineer at Aaton Digital, a company which shows exemplary reactivity.
, who distrusted stage technicians and particularly sound mixers, finding them grumpy and cranky (he nicknamed them "it won't cut
"), had found a trick when he had to film a complicated shot, announcing "dream sequence
". He gave the explanation over lunch
with his friend the English director Henry Jaglom
"You have to understand, these are people who work hard for a living. They have tough lives. Structured lives. They work all day, then they have dinner, put their kids to bed, go to sleep, and get back to the set at five o'clock the next morning. Everything else in life except for dreams has rules. The only place they're truly free is when they fall asleep and dream. If you tell them it's a dream sequence, they will be freed of those rules to be creative, imaginative, and give you all kinds of stuff that they've got inside of them.
With the introduction of Cantar X3, many sound engineers will discover they are no longer captives, in their sound recording, of a machine designed in Merovingian times. At last, they will fully express themselves and work in a different way; be more inventive, more creative and especially get away from the monotony of repetitive sound recording.
To support your shooting with the Cantar X3, DC Audiovisuel will soon bring to market a new 8-24 track paper sound report, also convenient with many other recorders.
