Audio Workshop
Sunday, November 13, 2PM
Columbus Film Council
1021 E Broad St (carriage house in the backyard)
Columbus Ohio

Often the difference between a good indie production and one that is unwatchable is audio. Unfortunate but true. The Columbus Film Council, in its efforts to help filmmakers in Central Ohio, is offering a location audio production workshop with master filmmaker Tom Hayes. Hayes, of Foglight Films, has been working in the “industry” for over 30 years, as an audio tech, cameraman, DP, and Avid Editor. He currently teaches postproduction at Ohio University, but previous to that position Tom worked on many, many productions as the “audio guy”. Tom’s own independent films have screened around the world and have received too many grants, awards, and accolades to list.

In this workshop Tom will be covering "best practices" in audio production for video and film including basic equipment requirements, mike placement, booming strategies, double system and single system recording, and preparing audio for post production.

$15 for members
$35 for nonmembers

Act Two: Confrontation May 12
Picking up where the first session left off, the second act will present the lead character’s journey, its multiple obstacles and the plot reversals that place the protagonist nearest and farthest from attaining the objective of the story.

Act Three: Resolution May 19
The final workshop will focus on the culmination of the plot and climax of the story. Award-winning and critically acclaimed examples, adaptations and exceptions to the three-act structure will round out a review of the workshop series.

Columbus, OH, USA 43205

Parking is free in the Red Cross parking lot.

Other Info
This workshop will cover the general basics of being a producer on a short form movie project – covering: pre-pro, production and post. You will learn how to…

* turn your idea (or someone else’s) into a script
* hire a crew
* find a director
* organize the paperwork
* cope with setbacks
* build contingency plans
* barter
* everything in between.

In the end, you will have a basic knowledge on how to get a project started, keep it going, and see it through to completion.

The job of producer varies from project to project, person to person – but in all cases, a great deal of producing comes from personal experience and one’s own style of leadership. This class will show you what you, if you were a producer, could expect in any given project, and how you can take the things you already know and apply them to a movie project to make it successful.
