Hi, I’m Ken Martini from Northern California. I have been in the film industry for 25 years. I started out as a commercial photographer and did products, architecture, portraits, and forensics.
For the last 15 years I have been involved in video, first as a gaffer, then incorporated sound and shooting.
While doing sound for a Shark Tank episode with 4 people on lavs, I lost a connection in my sound bag. It was a horrible experience to hold up the entire crew while I frantically tore through my bag to find the problem. Having a background in design I thought of how to make a better sound kit and that has been brewing in me for several years.
I finally decided to build my ideas on sound and other equipment and so I created “Filmdevices.com”. There are several products already made and the sound support kit I envisioned is now in the final stages and patents are being applied. The sound kit is sure to be a game changer. Photos and specs will soon be available.
I love the creativity in this industry in content and equipment. To be able to actually make the gear is a dream come true.
Looking forward to being a part of this forum.
