About The Presentation:
Production sound for live action motion picture and episodic television has changed dramatically over the last several years. With the ever-increasing pace of production, plus more unscripted dialog and multi-camera shooting, production sound has had to evolve their techniques, workflow, equipment, and knowledge to successfully record location sound.
Jon Tatooles of Sound Devices will discuss the practical considerations of sound recording on a live action motion picture production. He will discuss the need and application of multi-track audio recording, including automatic mixing for unscripted dialog. Timecode synchronization, metadata management, file workflow, and file management will also be discussed. Representative products will be on-hand.
