Professional Practice: Location Sound Recording For Artists
Tue 3 Nov 2015 / 10am - 6pm
Number of participants: 10
A one day course, led by Edward Lucas, that will introduce participants to location sound recording practices. The techniques and concepts learned will be fundamental to artists working in film, and mixed media, or others seeking to improve their experience and understanding in sound.
During the course of the day, participants will be given a practical overview to a range of microphones and recorders, many of which can be cheaply and readily available. This will include time spent making recordings outdoors in the surrounding area (weather permitting), and experimenting with the range of equipment that will be to hand. There will be a brief introduction towards audio post-production and working with video, though the main focus of this session will be on location work.
Professional Practice is a series of LUX talks, seminars and courses exploring practical issues for artists working with the moving image.
