The Imitation Game - someone just sent me a link to this article on the sound design for the film, on which some of my mics were used:
“The one they shot with on the film was just built for the aesthetics and had electronic motors, whereas the machine at Bletchley looks very similar to the one in the film, but makes the authentic sound,” Walpole continues.
“Together with Andy Kennedy [sound designer], Joe Beal [sound effects editor] and Forbes Noonan [ADR mixer], I went along to record the sound of that; we took along a couple of sound devices and recorded multi-track. The mics we used were a Schoeps CMIT 5 U, Neumann KM 104s, a RĂ˜DE NT4 and JRF contact mics. We recorded every whirr, click and buzz from multiple microphone perspectives with the machine on a full run.”
