- To expand my technical understanding of professional practice for sound production for Film and Television.
- To be able to record and edit crisp, clear dynamic sound for use in our third year productions to make myself a commodity; a go to guy for sound recording and engineering.
Shredder original sample
My biggest learning point with this module has been the continuing series of experiments borrowing sound equipment i have not previously had access to and the range of scenarios, locations and types of sound that I have recorded whilst completing my two mini projects and the accompanying experiments.
I feel that in combination with my contextual research and workshops that i have attended i have a competent understanding of how to record high quality audio in almost every situation possible, that i know what equipment and specific placement, operation etc is best for each scenario. For example one of the areas i know is extremely difficult to get right and vary often troublesome is shooting on location externally as there are so many variables and sources of interference the most common of which is wind, traffic, and crowds I feel that I have learnt to minimise these issues.
From this module i would like to take my now developed sound recording and engineering skills and be able to apply them to myself or a range of other students projects, and make sure their project has the best possible sound design it can have, people will often forgive bad filming but bad sound design immediately turns an audience off a film.
I would like to be able to demonstrate my previous statement that i feel comfortable and competent recording high quality audio in a range of challenging locations/scenarios and be the go to guy people think of when looking for a professional high quality sound recordist and sound designer.
