Audio 101      

6:30 to 8:00 pm
Instructor - Sam Russell

Good audio is essential for any broadcast. But what makes audio good or bad?  Audio 101 is a practical, hands-on introduction to everything you need to know. We'll talk about two types of microphones you would be using, their selection, handling and use. We'll talk about camera connections and proper setups. We'll minimize the technical details, so you don't need previous experience or tech knowledge. You'll gain an appreciation of what good audio is and how to get it.

Audio 201 

6:30 to 8:00 pm
Instructor - Sam Russell

Capturing good audio on location, without the aid of studio facilities, can be challenging. In this course, which will take place mostly outside of the studio, we'll demonstrate typical situations and challenges. We'll cover equipment needed, pre-shooting setup, and will go over a checklist of audio problems you may find in the field. Audio 101 is suggested as a pre-requisite but is not a requirement.

Tuesday, June 3

Looking for a volunteer to film the Girl Scout-PPPL STEM Fair on May 17 at Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory.  For more information, contact Hema Shankar

STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education but I am writing a press advisory about the STEM fair, which will have lots of hands-on science demonstrations, including robotics and fire safety demos (with real fire and firefighting equipment), and other science demonstrations. There should be plenty of cool stuff to film.
