J.T. Takagi Sound recordist, filmmaker

This is an introductory workshop on sound recording for film/video production. It will cover the how and why of sound, acoustics and human hearing, microphone types, recorders and mixers. We'll discuss how documentary and dramatic sound is recorded, and cover the "must have" gear. Students will be introduced to boom operation, using lavaliers and wireless microphones, and best practices. The workshop will involve a great deal of hands-on activity using industry standard sound equipment, including the Zoom Recorder and 633 mixer, as well as HD camera gear. Students will come away with an understanding of the field, as well as the skills and techniques to apply to film productions, podcasts, music, and other audio work. Beginners and emerging recordists welcome.
NOTE: Students cannot take equipment out or use equipment and facilities outside of class time.
