DPA Microphones Suits Up For The Accountant

Production Sound Mixer Whit Norris, CAS, used company's d:screet 4098 and d:dicate 4017 on the set of 2016 Warner Bros movie starring Ben Affleck

Sometimes a microphone's versatility is just as important as the sound quality, especially on a movie set where anything can happen.

In order to capture the dialogue of the upcoming Warner Bros. film, The Accountant, freelance production sound mixer Whit Norris, CAS, decided to plant a variety of DPA Microphones' d:screet 4098 Supercardioid Microphones near the actors and within the environment for different scenes. He also used the d:dicate 4017B Shotgun Microphone as his main boom microphone.

Scheduled for a 2016 release, The Accountant is a thriller written by Bill Dubuque and directed by Gavin O'Connor. The story centers on a mild-mannered accountant who moonlights as an assassin, played by Ben Affleck. Since the film is heavily based on dialogue, Norris and his team, boom operator Doug Cameron and sound utility/second boom operator Alana Knutson, utilized the d:screet 4098 mics with a Lectrosonics transmitter in order to plant them in various scenarios.

With their low profile, courtesy of a nearly invisible cable and integrated gooseneck, the 4098s provided Norris and his team with the ability to properly and easily aim the mics into any required position.
