Sergey Karpenko is the sound mixer for the Russian production of the sci-fi film "Paragraf 78". Sounds were gathered from actual aircraft to give a realistic sonic environment, and part of the challenge was to use radio mics. In some cases, these were used onboard the aircraft. Although several brands of wireless mic systems were tested, only the Lectrosonics could provide an un-interrupted signal for the duration of a shoot.
Paragraf 78 stars Gosha Kutsenko (II), Vladimir Vdovichenkov, Yusup Bakhshiev, Anastasiya Slanevskaya, and Aziz Beishenaliyev. The film is directed by Mikhail Khleborodov.
