This workshop is presented as part of The Incubators program. Click here for more info on the other workshops in this series >>
Join Sound Recordist, Sound Designer and Composer Gilles Maillet to discuss strategies to successfully incorporate sound and audio design into your film. In this workshop, we will look at the nuts and bolts of getting your dialogue recorded properly on set, and thinking about what it takes to get your sound the way you want from script to screen. The primary endeavour of this workshop will be to explore the inevitable intersection of Production and Post-Production sound, and the importance of capturing performances that help filmmakers tell their stories. We will provide a first hand look at the audio components of some larger-scale film and television productions, aiming to help you think about how to achieve top tier sound design with your own projects. We will also explore techniques and strategies from professional sound and picture editing rooms, to help set you on the right path in post-production. Some of the topics to be covered in Production include; microphones, mixers, recorders, wireless audio devices, sound recording techniques, and working with sync audio to video equipment. Building on these fundamentals, we discuss Post-Production topics such as sound design, ADR, Sound FX, Foley and mixing. This workshop will get you thinking about sound as an integral part of storytelling, and to help you think about your film’s production audio before you roll camera.
