A 2-1/2-hour, entertaining, funny, and immersive romp into what you need to know to start getting great sound. You’ve heard it said — in video and film, AUDIO is 70% of what you see. The sound you record on set can be the biggest obstacle to achieving truly professional results in your production. But it’s also one of the easiest things to get right! This 2.5-hour course is ideal for beginners, excellent for intermediates who want to better understand the topics, and great for professionals as easy reference. It will be a program you come back to again and again. Through detailed explanation, hands-on demonstration, and tongue-in-cheek sketch comedy and cinematic vignettes, Barry Green and Matt Gettemeier guide you through fundamentals for getting great sound in your film or television project. They’ll get you on your way to professional-sounding audio, from two very simple but extremely important recording techniques which will solve nearly 80% of your audio problems, to choosing the correct microphone for your project and the right way to handle your microphones on set, to building a basic audio kit and using it properly, to choosing and managing locations to get the best possible sound recording environment.
