Panamic booms used exclusively, by sound recordist Paul Adlaf. On production of series Tank Overhaul programme.
Tank Overhaul – History Channel
Paul Adlaf, the award winning Canadian sound recordist from Toronto is the sound man for the show and swears by panamic. Tank Overhul was filmed at The Imperial War Museum at Duxford in the UK.
The series Tank Overhaul follows teams of military historians and enthusiasts as they restore military vehicles of historical interest. In the first series they covered work on several WWII tanks, a Sherman tank, a German Panther a British Comet, a US M18 Hellcat tank destroyer, a German Elefant, all of which anyone with even a minor interest in recent military history would have heard of.
About Paul and the Panamics he swears by
Paul is a specialist documentary sound recordist although he has also tackled several feature films. He regularly uses a Panamic Mini boom 5, Midi boom 4 & Maxi Boom 4 in his work and swears by the quality of their design. Almost all of the sound recording on the Tank Overhaul series uses boom recording employing Panamic booms. Paul has tried several competing products in the past and described them as “…so substandard…” in comparison to Panamic’s booms and accessories.
