Day 31-34

1. Sound Editing 101

Problem: The sound is only playing in one of my headphones!

Solution: We hear sounds in stereo (i.e. our left ear and right ear). The Saramonic records in mono (i.e. a single channel, left if captured in port 1, right if captured in port 2). We simply need to copy the sound from the Saramonic from one ear to another. I’ll show you a trick so that you can make the audio track play in both ears, not just one.

2. Open Studio

We will have open studio over the next four days to complete the Conflict through Dialogue project, so plan for a total of four to five hours of editing. If you need to finish or reshoot scenes, please do so as soon as possible and with the knowledge that it will take away from your post-production time.

If you finish this project early, you may use your time to catch up on any other overdue work. We will do a final review for the export and submission process at the start of the block on Thursday and will be completing our first formal self assessments that day. We will hopefully be screening the “Shoot the Shots” films at the end of the week!
