Audio for video: Sennheiser launches online tutorial for filmmakers

“If you’re asking me ‘What is the most underestimated power of filmmaking?’ that would be sound,” says filmmaker Geert Verdickt. To remedy this situation, the multi-award-winning video journalist has joined forces with audio specialist Sennheiser to develop a series of tutorial videos dedicated to the subject of audio for video filmmakers. In a total of five episodes, Geert Verdickt shows ambitious filmmakers how to record perfect sound for their videos, and does it in a way that is both professional and entertaining. From 19 September onwards, a new tutorial video will go online every two weeks at www.sennheiser.com/audioforvideo.
