About the Workshop
A lot of attention goes to the visual aspects of filmmaking, but the impact of a film on an audience depends heavily on sound. Sound quality is often more important than picture quality.
This workshop will cover the key concepts of sound, types of microphones, and practical skills to use a shot-gun mic, lavalier mic, and a Zoom recorder.
This workshop will be accompanied by Rode Smartlav+ Microphone, Azden ECZ-900 Zoom Microphone, Zoom H4N Pro which are all available for rental at Modern Fuel. This workshop is open to anyone who is interested in the basics of "how to record sound" regardless of their experience.
