From “Action!” to Screening: Getting the Best Sound for your Production

Sound is a key part in taking your film from “eh” to “holy $&@! that was AWESOME!” From capturing the best recording on set to adding sound effects and scoring, this session will be your quick introduction to getting dynamic sound for your 48 project. Audrey Martinovich will show examples from films she has worked on and explain how certain sound effects came to be. 

Maybe if she is in a good mood she will provide a library of sounds you can take home with you.
