We will look at both "halves" of sound for film. Field recording during production and post production sound design and mix. We talk about the impact of sound for film from both technical and creative perspectives and discuss how directors are involved in the process. There will be a combination of lecture, demonstrations, hands-on with equipment and Q/A. No technical experience is required.
