March 2018

Learn to Lav 'Em and Leave 'Em

Award-winning sound mixers Chris Newman and Peter Schneider, aided and abetted by professional sound people Jeannie Gilliland, Gregg Harris, Kira Smith, and Julian Townsend, demonstrate how to hide wireless microphones and transmitters on actors for film. The demonstrations will be followed by hands-on breakout sessions, so you can try out what you've learned.

Please note that the event is free and open to all, but you must register here by 11am on 4/14 so we have your name for entry into the building.

Sponsored by the School of Visual Arts, the Cinema Audio Society, and Gotham Sound.
