Tech Workshop: Location Sound

Fall 2018

Taught By: Theodore Robinson

Section: A

CRN: 7585

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 tech workshop 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. 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.

This course is open to MA in Media Studies, MS and graduate certificate in Media Management, and Documentary Studies Certificate students only. All other graduate students may request permission after August 1st by emailing mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu.
