You’re a content creator and you’ve got the video figured out but you might not have considered audio when you bought your camera. Understandably so, audio is an easy thing to overlook… let’s talk about why it’s important not to.
It’s commonly known in today’s world of digital media that it’s easier to watch content with poor video quality than it is to watch content with poor audio quality. That’s because audio is what deliver’s the message—audio is what tells the story. This session will focus on three essential application areas that every creator should be familiar with to capture great audio in any situation: on-camera mics, wireless lavs, and boom mics. Greg and Robb will take you through some of the fundamentals to get you started and provide you with tips and tricks that you can reliably use on every shoot. Beyond the basics, they’ll talk shop on a variety of microphone options available from Sennheiser and will dig deeper for those that are looking to fine-tune their sound.
