Robbie Carman & Rich Harrington

About this course

Audio shouldn't be an afterthought when it comes to video production. Its "half the picture." But many people who shoot with DSLRs don't monitor or supplement the sound that comes from their camera.

  • Why does my audio sound so bad?
  • How do I use a dedicated audio recorder?
  • Which type of microphone should I use?
  • What adapters do I need?
  • How do I sync sound—in the field and in post?


Instructors Rich Harrington and Robbie Carman offer simple solutions that will help you capture high-quality audio without a lot of expensive gear. Plus, get run-and-gun techniques for getting clean audio in noisy settings, syncing audio with video in post, and using click tracks to capture great live music performances.
