      I am a novice movie maker and I am making a video about homeless youth in my community. If I uploaded a wav of the audio could someone edit it for me and send it back? (IE normalize the audio so its consitant, take out background humming ect.) I tried really hard to do this myself and I couldnt do it.

      Thanks and God Bless,

      Try using Audacity – they have a noise reduction feature and it’s free.

      You’ve learned a good lesson – GIGO – Garbage In Garbage Out.

      Getting good audio is just as important as getting good video.

      Only use a video camera which has an audio in jack so you can use a microphone

      rather than the camera audio.

      What needs to be done to your WAV? Is there crackle/static/hum? Or is it too loud, quiet, affected? I could do it if you really don’t want to. Email it to
