Petrol Bags Keep Sound Mixer Grant A. Waters On the Move

When it comes to Sound Mixers, pleasing production is two-fold. You have to look presentable and be fast, mobile and unobtrusive, says Grant A. Waters, a key player in sound for high-profile productions from reality programs like TNTs Life Flight and A&Es Duck Dynasty to film/documentary productions like The Vegas Story and more. Key to many of my most recent productions is a new acquisition from Petrol Bags, the Large Lightweight Audio Bag (PS617). Petrol Bags is part of Vitec Videocom, a Vitec Group company.
