Are you pretty sure what a compressor does, but not quite sure how to pick a threshold? Especially if you're only working in Premiere? In this video I try to clear up some confusion about how and what to set your threshold to for nice, smooth, buttery dialogue in premiere pro.
Have you ever felt confused about video loudness? What are the standards for that? And if you find that out, how do you even find out how "loud" your video is? It can be very confusing. In this video I hope to break down this issue into very digestable nuggets of info that you can use to achieve consistent loudness over time! Premiere Pro has a handy tool called the "Loudness Radar" which analyzes in real time the average loudness of your audio. You can then use that data to make important mastering decisions to get your video to the correct loudness!
How do you protect your precious audio from getting destroyed by wind?? Well, in this brief Friday show I talk about it and there’s also a flower in my hair lol.
Last week I had a last minute opportunity to fly out to Salt Lake City, Utah and film a series of videos with Moment Lenses! If you don’t know Moment, they are THE premier mobile photography company. They make lenses and other filmmaking accessories that seamlessly integrate with your smartphone. They also have one of the most entertaining and informative filmmaking Youtube channels you could find!!
SO, naturally when they called me I said “YESSS OKAY SURE YEP JUST LET ME KNOW WHEN WHERE AND HOW”
We spent the majority of the trip filming a short that’s meant to show off what good sound design can do - and that’s below: (And yep, I worked on this!)
After filming the short, Taylor and I sat down and had a wonderful conversation on camera about the importance of GOOD SOUND in your films! Something I’m obviously passionate about. That video is below:
AND FINALLY I made a bit of a vloggie recap from the trip. That’s below!!! THIS WAS SO MUCH FUN!
If you ever need to go record a commercial voiceover on location for a client, what do you do? Well maybe you need to focus on the space you're in before you buy a nice microphone!
