4-Week Cinematic Audio Workshop Starts This Wednesday

What's in it for you?

Help build the Video Club's audio production capabilities by becoming part of our “audio team” (so essential on every shoot). Or just learn techniques to improve the sound in your own videos. Or, ideally, do both!

Dr. Tom Nash's new workshop will emphasize recording audio outside the studio. The 4 week course begins this Wednesday (April 13, 2022) and will meet each week (no class on May 4) from 10-11:30 am in the Video Studio, between Clubhouse 2 and the pool. Learn about audio recording goals, microphone types, digital recording standards, how to avoid audio problems, and more.  

Taking the full series is highly recommended. The COST is $20 for 4 sessions (club members) or $5 per session, payable in class (cash or check). Non-members pay an additional $15 for residents and $20 for non-residents, which includes 2022 club membership. To enroll or for more information, contact Dr. Tom Nash,

It will be produced by the club's Video One Productions team during 2022 (pre-production in summer, shooting in early fall, post-production in later fall) for broadcast on Village Television, possible submission to film festivals, later streaming on YouTube, and other distribution.

Submission is open to residents of Laguna Woods Village and members or past members of Village clubs registered with the Village Management Services Recreation Department. The contest deadline is Friday, June 24, 2022.
