Nice...Simple...Effective.
I really would have liked to be able to hear the drill on the video though.

Gwyd,
I didn't even think of that. Maybe I should mic the drill?

Tim,
This wont, but blockhead might.
But I will be doing the chainsaws though!

I would definately mic the drill. Sound can do so much to enhance.
I watched a performer do a razor blades routine. It was really good, but when he put the mic up to his cheek so you could hear the blades clacking aginst his teeth? There was a collective audience shudder!
In a recent show where I actually had a Mic (Very unusual for me), I set it down right next to my glass box for glass walking.
Amplified crunching glass...The crackling and popping of the glass breaking was phenominal.
And please...Keep posting videos!
thanks,
Gwyd

It's pretty hard to find the right drill that makes the best whine that will pick up on a microphone. I use my 18 volt cordless Ryobi and it hardly makes a sound. You really have to turn the mic up for that.

oh and watch your side to side play when doing the stunt.

Sadly I am using a Robi in this clip and it was the pirfect size and speed for it but it died and I had to throw it away. I need to find one of those old heavy metal workman drills, the kind that you can hear the gears-a-turn'n.

Hi,
Been pondering this for a while, so decided just to ask.
What do you guys use for the blockhead drill bit?
I understand if you don't want to post any answers here, but if you'd like to pm me that'd be awsome.
Cheers,
Ros
PS
Yet another beautiful vid Larry

At Sloss, we mic the drill, the glass walk, the mouse trap on the tongue, and the light bulb eating. In fact, for the drill, I unscrew the windscreen and hold the raw mic right against the motor housing of the drill while Rok does the blockhead bit. A stunt that plays visually for the first 2-3 rows gets thrown to the back of the joint. It screams and whines like a stepped-on cat. Much better! Smile
