- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Scott Hirsch, and welcome to Audio for Video: Production and Post Sound Techniques. This course if for any film or video maker who wants better sound. Or any sound engineer who wants more insight into how to work with sound for video. My goal is to cover simple, yet effective, techniques to improve the audio of your video documentary or narrative film project. (background noise) We'll go through production tips and guidelines, post-production techniques, and how to adopt an audio post production workflow that best suits your project.
Along the way, we'll be exploring best practices for capturing the best production sound possible in any shooting style or location. We'll discuss how far to take the audio tracks in your video editing system and what to leave for the audio-specific applications, as well as how to professionally hand-off the project to an audio post house, if that's your chosen workflow. We'll dive into noise reduction and restoration possibliities for problematic audio. I'll show you editing, effects, and mixing techniques to make your audio smooth and listenable.
