Newton, Massachusetts based technology provider Talamas is holding a seminar conducted by audio specialist David Missall on the best practices in recording sound for a wide range of motion picture productions including sports, news, digital cinema, or even a wedding.

In this seminar Missall will cover microphone basics, demonstrate microphone pickup patterns, booming techniques, shotgun microphones, when to use a lapel microphone, the best interview microphone, as well as wireless microphone applications and tips and tricks for eliminating unwanted noise during production.

The seminar will be held at Talamas’ new 1,400-square-foot meeting space at their Newton, Massachusetts, facility from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on Thursday, November 20. There will be a break with light refreshments.
