I met Mike Henderson (pictured above holding a boom mic) for the first time last week. We chatted at his house and recorded the conversation. What resulted was an extraordinarily fun, lively discussion about – and this is not an all-inclusive list – the band Cannibal Corpse, the films of Ed Wood (Mike’s own company is called Plan 9 Studios), how those who work on a lazy Adam Sandler film feel about the quality of what they’re helping to put out into the world, the decline of Robert DeNiro and Jack Nicholson, and, oh yeah… we talk about his work as well.
It’s fun when you meet someone for the first time and connect like you’ve known each other for years, and this is one of those chats. We’re immediately at home with each other which accounts for us basically going all over the map topic-wise, and for the larger-than-average volume of profanity in this week’s show. There’s a ton of interesting info about how to make it as an audio engineer in both music and indie filmmaking, but trust me, the riffs alone are worth tuning in for.
