Video thumbnail for vimeo video Audio101 - What is a Submix - nofilmschoolJust as digital imagery can be manipulated in post with a number of approaches — combinations of which may be used to achieve pretty much the same effect — working with audio is a malleable exercise. It’s become even more malleable recently thanks to innovative sound manipulation interfaces which provide a powerful palette for painting, re-painting, and un-painting sound. That said, some tenets of the basic audio interface design haven’t changed much in decades. One such basic is the submix. Check out a great demonstration of the undiminished usefulness — and power — of ‘subs’ below. More »

Getting good quality sound on-set can sometimes feel like an impossibility, especially on lower budget productions. While the sound mixer can often go underappreciated on many of these productions, their job, if done correctly, is right up there with the 1st AC (or focus-puller). If your movie is not in focus it’s going to distract the audience, and at the same time, bad audio will be even more distracting. SoundWorks Collection has profiled professional sound people from all across Hollywood, and today we’ve got a video that goes in-depth with Nicholas Allen, who is the sound mixer on NBC’s Parenthood.

I’ll be live streaming/chatting the end of my Kickstarter campaign this Friday (September 23) here on NoFilmSchool starting at 9pm Eastern (the campaign’s deadline at 11:59pm). If you live in NYC or are here for Independent Film Week, though, here’s a great opportunity to meet and network with other filmmakers. With only 4 days left and a lot of ground to cover, I can’t say whether it will be a party celebrating the SUCCESS of the campaign — but either way it should be a fun time!

Come on down to the brand new bar/lounge/theater Indie Screen (pictured, though it should be a bit more full than in the photo!) in Williamsburg, drink and be merry, mix with other filmmakers and creatives, and share your own story (join me on-screen and let the rest of the NoFilmSchool community know what creative projects you’re working on)! We’ll kick it off at 8pm, start the stream at 9, and watch the countdown until midnight when we’ll see the Kickstarter ticker hit “0 hours left.” RSVP on Facebook please, as the venue wants to know how many people are coming and I honestly have no idea!
