“Comedians in Cars Getting Wired”: More Amazing Prizes From Our Sponsors at Gotham Sound
We at Fusion are very excited to inform contestants, festival enthusiasts, and fellow Fusionites alike of more amazing news from our sponsors – Gotham Sound has teamed up with the festival again to sponsor some incredible prizes. The company has generously offered five $200 certificates with a donation value of $1,000.
Gotham Sound and Communications, Inc. is the ideal one-stop audio shopping and service experience. The company’s services range from equipment rental to equipment repair. In addition to its up-to-date stock and talented technicians, Gotham’s knowledgeable staff is on hand to provide insightful advice. Whether a major studio film or a student project, Gotham Sound and Communications, Inc. is dedicated to providing reliable, expert support. Check out this real-life scenario, straight from the Gotham blogs, to see just how Gotham tools can aid you in resourceful filmmaking:
“Suppose you have a certain high profile talent who has a kooky idea for a show. He wants to take classic cars, pick up other high profile talent, drive them around the city (stopping at various locations), treat them to coffee, and drive them back home – all while seamlessly recording their entire conversation, without having a sound person present in the car as it zips around New York.
What would you do?
This is exactly the scenario presented to Gotham when director Jojo Pennebaker called us in 2012 about Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. The stipulations were that it had to be seamless, it had to be unobtrusive, and there had to be total coverage – with no retakes. Lucky for us, Zaxcom wireless provide a unique feature set that allowed us to accomplish exactly this.”

For Fusion winners, Gotham is an incredibly useful tool in creating independent projects. The rental inventory is diverse enough for any sized project and budget, from an Intermediate Narrative production to a first feature. Getting an independent project underway can be difficult, but the support of Gotham and their technical wizards can make the entire process a great deal easier, just like they did for Jerry Seinfeld.
Be sure to attend the Student Showcase and Award Ceremony at Cantor Film Center on Saturday, March 8th at 7pm to find out who will win this great prize.
