location sound for tv and film
Capturing clean and usable dialogue seems simple, but it has been the downfall of many productions. Advances in technology have led to more equipment and greater choices but the fundamentals have stayed the same, good audio starts on location.
What equipment is needed to do the job? How is it operated to capture acceptable sound? Is a team needed or can one engineer do the whole job? Will post production be able to use the audio and not resort to ADR?
This workshop is designed to educate aspiring audio engineers, independent filmmakers, and multimedia specialists on the selection and use of audio equipment in a professional environment. It will be a hands on class and participants are encouraged to bring their own equipment for demonstration, evaluation and optimization.
Participants will be introduced to techniques, equipment and workflows that will aid in the capture of clean dialog on set.
