Fillmmaking requires several audio roles that work together to create great, impactful sound that adds to movies and video.
Achieving good microphone placement is a surprisingly straightforward process and one grounded in physics and engineering concepts. Technical aspects like the microphone type directly influence the design, sensitivity, sound and directionality.
When it comes to recording audio for video, there are a number of factors to keep in mind. We're here to cover everything you need to know.
The audio spectrum describes the functional frequency range of sound. In theory, this does include all sounds in our hearing range and beyond.
When it comes to audio, you have likely heard the terms mono and stereo. The question is: what are they? and how are they different?
Microphones are an interesting category of video tools, in a geeky sort of way. The primary goal of any mic for video production is the same: convert acoustic energy into an electrical signal for use in recording. But that's where the similarities end. From that point on, the variations...

Though REAPER and Audition are extraordinary audio editors, nothing can fix bad audio production. Good sound design paints a portrait of your film's world and bad sound design subtracts from that. Noisy or distorted audio is a primary culprit when it comes to ruined audio clips. Here's what you...
Acoustics is where the physics and aesthetics of sound meet. It's how we ascribe quantitative and qualitative meaning to a sound’s or environment’s properties. These distinctions allow us to appreciate why places are lauded for their acoustics, to demystify microphone placement, and to visualize how sound navigates its environment. Physics...
