The documentary Out of Nothing is my first feature, and the first feature for our entire P-51 Pictures team. It’s more than just a story about motorcycles. It’s a human story. It follows four men who follow their passions and dreams, and it tells one of many stories that are a part of a larger community of individuals and teams involved in motorcycle land speed racing.
When looking over the footage that Director Chad DeRosa had shot over the course of two years, one word came to mind. Scope. It was Chad’s and Producer Andrew Lahmann’s goal that the film should look and feel large. We wanted Out of Nothing to be experienced as more of an action/drama narrative than an informative style of documentary
I’m really stoked by the way The Tonebenders Podcast has been jumping onto our monthly topics when they can. This time, they’ve got a spectacular roundtable conversation with Rob Noke, Watson Wu and Max Lachmann. Give it a listen, and make sure to visit the Tonebenders webpage to find out more information about their guests in this episode.
Thanks for the contribution, guys!

I’m very proud to announce the launch of the new sister site to echo | collective - echo | collective: fields!
The fields project will take me out of the comfortable confines of the studio and have me in the real world gathering ambiences and other sounds in high res surround.
We launched with three libraries: pro hockey ambiences, hospital ambiences, and Texas rodeos and ranches.
I’d love to talk a bit about the biggest of the three libraries – Pro Hockey Ambiences.
Episode 11 starts with the hosts answering a backlog of listener questions, including inquiries on recording fire, large file transfers and more. Then we try something new as Rene builds a huge laser cannon blast on the fly while the creative process behind a sound effects is explored. Plus, we announce the first Tonebenders homework assignment…
