During my filmmaking career, I’ve run the gambit on all different sides of production. Back in Baltimore, I worked with skeleton crews writing, directing, and doing sound on my own productions. Since moving to Los Angeles I’ve found a lot of work on set sound mixing, and I wanted to give some easy, actionable steps that can help all filmmakers, at every budget level, get the best sound possible.
1) Knowing The Tools
Most sound mixers start with what we call a “basic kit.”. (More details from Cory Baker here…)
2) Sound Problem VS. Location Problem
3) How to Properly Budget for Sound
4) Things That Sound Can Do
5) What Every Production Can Do To Improve the On Set Sound Experience
