hsr/ny’s George Meyer mixed the Court TV thriller pilot, The Chase: Track Down, which had its network premiere on April 11th; the segment will repeat on the network.

  The Chase: Track Down features a new concept in reality television, a 21-mile desert manhunt of two contestants playing the role of runaway fugitives chased by a team of four professional trackers. The scenario demonstrates, dramatically, the tracker's ancient skills, use of modern-day forensics and footprint analysis employed in typical manhunts. It's a real-time, 24-hour escape and track-down played out over the harsh terrain of Southern Nevada.

Red Brick Entertainment’s Rob Dustin, creator and executive producer of the pilot said, “ I have collaborated with George Meyer for 15 years and he is not only the best mixer I have worked with, he is also the quickest. And in terms of audio post that is  crucial. The audio I heard in the editing suite sounded great to me but once I got into hsr and George’s studio and he cleaned it up and brightened the sound it was a totally different show. Great coming in but absolutely unbelievable when he finished with it. There really was a stark difference in the quality.”

“The Cedar DNS1000 digital equalizer was invaluable in cleaning up the very noisy dialog tracks as the audio was recorded in the middle of the desert, on the fly,” added  Meyer.  Both Pro Tools and Audiofile were also used to mix the pilot.

Representing Red Brick Entertainment (Ridgefield, CT), which created the pilot, were creator/executive producer Robert (“Dusty”) Dustin, producer Tom Coppola, coordinating producer Margo Halle, DP Ken Woo and field audio mixer Elliott Fisher.

In The Chase: Track Down, Red Brick’s on-air consultant Tom Brown Jr., author of 17 definitive books on tracking and survival, and arguably  America's best outdoorsman and survival tactician, leads a team of his protégés to stop the fugitives before they reach the Colorado River.

The offline and online editorial and color correction was handled by Jeff Shook of Betelgeuse Production (New York, NY).

hsr/ny and George Meyer currently mix the audio for both Whoopi, NBC-TV’s Tuesday night half-hour comedy entry starring Whoopi Goldberg, and for Hope and Faith,  ABC-TV’s Tuesday night  half-hour comedy starring Kelly Ripa and Faith Ford. In addition, Meyer has just completed mixing, for Red Brick, the International Skating Union (ISU) series airing on Lifetime.
