Communication in the camera dept. communication walkies By Vince on 2/19/19, 9:31 AM • 1,360 views Because communication is vital, tell us how you implement walkies on set. What brand/kind of walkies and is there any improvement possible? Any "in-ears" you prefer? Tell us! Gunnar Mortensen On 2/20/19, 4:27 PM Not that it adds to communication but the hot ticket item in Hollywood are walkie woogies. This is how you can personalize your earpiece to a variety of colors and patterns https://dependableexpendables.com/products/walkie-woogie
Gunnar, thank you so much. As of today,, me and my team will be wearing the pink ones. And Vince, it will be with black in-ears and its the Motorola walkie we use here in Holland. But, actually i prefer the headsets with an 'open' line. No pushing buttons. you can always talk. Just make strickt rules about when to talk during a take.

I have invested in my own wired earpiece system which has a series of adapters to connect to the 2 way radio with a mic & a clear acoustic tube, similar to the secret service types. I find I can wear the earpiece all day without any fatigue or pain. Works for me!

Arne van Wunnik On 10/13/19, 5:47 PM Don't know if it's full on topic, but I prefer to use the Radio chest harness from conterra (https://www.conterra-inc.com/collections/rescue-radio-carrier/products/tool-chest-radio-chest-harness) That way you don't have the walkie danglin on your belt when you have to run. There's also a little strap on the top right so you can pass your cable through it so it doesn't bother you.
