What you'll learn in this audio software training:

This course is a deep-dive into the world of audio for production. Audio-beginners to experienced filmmakers will learn how to create powerful, immersive experiences for their audience by recording quality sound.

Wish you could compete with big-budget Hollywood’s audience impact? In the highly competitive world of multimedia production, the independent creative must seize every advantage to gain followers, make money, and get more clients. There may be no more efficient means to do this than having powerful and immersive sound in your productions. This course is a powerful introduction to the non-intuitive art of capturing excellent audio recordings of dialog, music and sound effects for multimedia and podcast implementation. 

Master presenter Mark Edward Lewis covers the essential and hidden-by-Hollywood aspects of professional recording on set, in studio, and in the field. He will show you how to maximize the equipment you already have to generate emotional and artifact-free sound. He will also expose attendees to the newest and and cutting edge equipment and techniques for streamlining the post production process by solving audio problems in pre-production.

This course is mandatory education for anyone who wishes to compete in the multimedia marketplace. It is an intensive, comprehensive deep-dive into the world of audio-visual immersion, and attendees from audio-beginners to experienced filmmakers will have a great deal of fun learning how easy it can be to create or ruin powerful immersive experiences for audiences.  

Empower yourself and witness your creative vision come alive following attending this course when you can execute the most important aspect of multimedia storytelling at the highest level: Capturing Sound.
