One of the most important elements of any video is the quality of the sound. A clear recording made in the field can make or break your production.
This workshop is for people with an interest in developing skills and an understanding of how sound recording works for video and film production.
The most important elements and skills of sound recording will be taught and practised "hands-on" by participants. This will include how to hook up your sound equipment to various cameras, microphone techniques and types, and how to get the best sound possible. The course will also touch on best practices when working in professional situations.
Previous experience and a basic understanding of Digital Video production is a suggested prerequisite for this workshop but not required.
