Past Workshop Descriptions

Introduction to Sound Recording

The biggest technical shortcoming of many videos and independent films is the sound, give your project a boost with one of the most important jobs on set. Learn the foundational theory of sound recording in this three-hour intensive workshop. Participants will explore the different types of recorders, microphones and mixers used in a low budget independent film production and DIY projects. Professional recording techniques, the responsibilities of the sound team, as well as on-set and location tips will be covered.

This course is recommended as a companion to Introduction to Post- Production Sound for Filmmakers and Producers and Sound Design workshops.

Please note that a workshop does not substitute the need for LIFT members to perform a proficiency test in order to rent particular LIFT equipment and/or facilities from our Technical Department.
