The Sound Of Game Of Thrones

Emmy-nominated production sound mixer Ronan Hill is on set in Belfast for the third season of Game Of Thrones, HBO's fantasy epic adapted from the novels A Song of Ice and Fire.
Mr Hill is using digital audio recorders by US company Sound Devices.
The series is full of challenges for a sound mixer, including the fast pace, some remote locations and the fact that more than ten principal characters may speak in a typical scene from the series.
Sound Devices's 788T recorder has become a mainstay in Mr Hill’s cart-based and portable sound rigs.
In order to keep ADR to a minimum, Mr Hill is tasked with capturing all the dialogue on location as well as recording ambiance.
A loyal customer of Sound Devices, he first used a 744T recorder for the feature films Kings and Hunger, which earned IFTAs (Irish Film and Television Award) for Best Sound. He also used the 744T to record Five Minutes of Heaven and The Eclipse, which also garnered IFTA nominations.
Mr Hill used Sound Devices 788T on the first season of Game of Thrones, which won CAS and IFTA nominations for Best Sound. At the start of season two, Hill invested in a Sound Devices 788T-SSD, which became his main recorder on the cart, with the 744T used as a cart-based, two-channel backup. His original 788T became his dedicated portable run-and-gun recorder and is fitted with a Sound Devices CL-8 mixing controller. It is always on stand-by for when Hill is on-location.
Mr Hill said: "I have always found the Sound Devices recorders to be very flexible, reliable and user friendly, but most of all they sound fantastic. They get used in all conditions and always perform well. I can't wait to hear what they come up with next."
