The official blurb:
Pinwheel explores the story behind a moment when two mismatched strangers share a glance during the morning rush hour. The stare holds something familiar, an innocent romance from the past, relived through a series of short vignettes. But as the moment collapses, the memory fades and the two very different lives must carry on.

This past summer, I had the chance to get “into the pit” with the good guys at Raging Indifference for a new TV series called “P1”, which documents a season of the Canadian Touring Car Championship races.
I was originally brought on as Post-Production Supervisor, but what joy is pushing schedules and deliverables and all that stuff when the real fun is hanging around a bunch of high-performance race cars going mach 5?? When producers Geoff Davidson and Marcus Matyas needed a sound guy in a pinch, I jumped into my gear and headed up to Mosport to get my slice of the action.
As you can imagine, a speedway is hardly the ideal location for sound recording and I had to keep my kit pretty lean as there was a lot of following different people around. I tried mainly to use the Sennheiser MKH416 boom and backed up any interviews with a wireless lav, all channeled to a Sound Devices 788T multi-track recorder. Seemed to work pretty well. The post audio was handled expertly by Roman Zebik.
On a side note, my esteemed producers forgot to tell me that you couldn’t wear shorts in the pit, and of course I didn’t bring any pants. A lovely fellow from the Media Racing Team was kind enough to lend me a pair of very small and very tight black jeans. Somewhere out there, there’s a picture of me looking very “fashionable” in the world’s skinniest black jeans….just needed a trucker hat to complete the hipster outfit….
