This intensive one-day Location Recording Course is designed to give you an introduction to the professional practices used in recording professional quality sound on location.

The course starts with a session on the underpinning audio theory, and moves on to a ‘hands on’ practical session to become familiar with the characteristics of a variety of commonly used microphones, and to gain experience in everything is connected together. This session also looks at how to recognize common interface problems and how to resolve them.

After lunch we move on to record a variety of scenes, shot in both interior and exterior locations, and a variety of situations, both static and dynamic. Course delegates have the opportunity to work with a variety of microphones such as rifle, personal radio, hand-held and PZM.

The material recorded is then critically reviewed in a debriefing session, and the course ends with a question and answer session.
