Recording Options for Convention Attendees

Posted June 28, 2011

Just because you're attending a national convention, that doesn't mean the auditions or the jobs stop coming in!  We've all heard stories over the years of delegates setting up makeshift recording booths in closets or corners - basically anywhere they could hang a few bath towels to help deaden the acoustics - and cutting on-the-fly spots using portable equipment.  It's not ideal, but when you've only got a few minutes between plenary sessions or workshops, sometimes it seems like it's the best that can be managed.

So, we're excited to be able to offer a couple of decidedly more professional options for both audio and video recording services while you're visiting Seattle!

Our good friends at Bad Animals Audio Post (an AFTRA signatory recording facility) are a mere three blocks away from the Convention site at 2212 Fourth Avenue, and have graciously offered the use of one of their professional sound recording studios to AFTRA members attending Convention at a reduced rate of $75.00 per half-hour, including a non-origination ISDN connection or phone patch - a $187.50 value!  Longer sessions are also available at a discounted hourly rate.  Delegates are asked to contact Bad Animals Studio Manager Wendi Willis at 206-443-1500 to make an appointment.

In addition, the AFTRA Northwest Office has an in-house audio/video recording facility avaialble for free use by members in-good-standing.  Our resource room is equipped with a Canon Vixia HG20 HD digital camera, a Rode NT1A mic, and a full suite of Mac-supported software for video and audio recording and editing.  The AFTRA office is located only a short distance from the Convention site (less than 10 minutes by taxi) and will be staffed during normal business hours; after hours sessions may be scheduled by-appointment during Convention.  Seattle Local staff will be on-site at the Westin Hotel during the week and can assist with scheduling and logistics.
