The History of Sound at the Movies

The inclusion of sound at the movies was one of the most dramatic changes in all of film history. Dive into the early experiments of Edison trying to incorporate sound from film's inception, through the experiments in the early 1920s, the Jazz Singer and the industry sound overhaul, and finally the multi-channel surround and modern movie sound technologies.

The Science and Engineering of Sound

Take a closer look at the science of sound and the basics of how microphones convert sound energy into electrical signals. We will also run through the different kinds of mics used in video and film production.

The Basics of Recording Audio for Digital Video

We now turn our attention to the audio signal chain as John P. Hess defines the different components needed when recording on set for digital video.

The Fundamentals of Sound in Post Production

It's time to open up the digital audio workstation and look at the basics of common tools used in post production audio from Equalizers, Compressors, Noise Reduction, and Delay effects.

Introduction to Automated Dialogue Replacement (ADR)

Sometimes it's just not possible to get clean dialogue on set - that's when ADR comes into play. In this lesson we'll look at the history of ADR or looping and tackle the process of doing ADR or a short film.

Introduction to Foley and Sound Effects for Film

Very little of what you hear in the movies is real - in this lesson we take a look at the art of Foley, how to classify it, the history of the man who started it all and take a crack at doing our own Foley work.
