Great Audio in Your Video -- Part 1 Acquisition | Shooting
About This Workshop
Audio is one of the most important parts of your video. It is what transports your viewer into the world of your story. We often spend so much time focusing on the visuals that we forget to think about the audio. In this two part workshop, Brett Savaglio will take you through what you need to know to have a great audio track in your video. In this first part, Brett will teach you how to acquire great audio. After all, you can’t have a great audio track on your video unless you acquire great audio when you are shooting. We’ll look at the techniques of getting great audio: from nat sound to soundbites and dialogue, as well as the best equipment to use — particularly when recording with your smartphone. In Part 2 we’ll look at perfecting your audio in the edit. Brett will teach you how to do a professional audio mix no matter what editing software you are using. The professional audio mix is broken into two steps. First is mixing all your audio to industry standard, and the second step is the relative audio mix — that is how your clips sound relative to one another and perfectly engross your viewer into your story.
