Tech Workshop: Location Sound

Fall 2022

Taught By: Theodore Robinson

Section: B

CRN: 15193

Credits: 1

The importance of capturing high-quality sound when filming on location cannot be overestimated; the inconvenience and expense incurred as a result of poorly recorded sound are considerable. This intensive course, taught by a veteran of the TV and film industry, introduces best practices of recording and mixing sound on location. Students learn to achieve professional-quality results with the equipment widely used in the industry today. Practical challenges introduce students to the basic skill of conducting informed "field diagnostics"; assessing the location and choosing the best recording technique and equipment for the situation. After an introduction to the principles of acoustical theory (what is sound, and how does it behave in different environments?), students engage in recording and listening exercises. Lessons include training in the use of microphones, recorders, and mixers and instruction on line-up, levels, indicators and monitoring, compressors and limiters, boom operation, recording to camera, noise, and set protocol.
