Here are seven things I learned from the Sound Advice Tour – recording and mixing audio.

 

 

Sound is not the most glamorous part of filmmaking. But as I begin to appreciate the creative side of filmmaking, I can’t help but see the huge value that sound plays in keeping the audience on board. We’ve all heard that ‘sound is 50%’ and ‘audiences notice bad sound more than bad visuals’, but do we ever live that out? Do we spend an equal amount of time and money on sound compared to visuals?

    Hi Simon, I have watched your videos previously as well and I think you’re doing a good job.
    i find it slightly distracting thought, to hear that you speak in smaller bursts like a scat and that your pitch varies greatly within a single sentence itself. I know this may sound very weird. But, I just feel that the appeal of your videos will increase maybe 300% if your speech is a little smoother.

    • Tony Babarino

      Well, that IS a reasonable point. But for me, honestly, he just sounds “himself” and this voice and manners are soothing and sound honest. So, if he doesn’t change, it’s fully okay with me. I like the site and videos overall.
