Sound recording is an essential part of production, yet often finds itself outside of the ideal situations of a controlled environment. This hands-on workshop will dive into the basics of audio recording designed to help capture the best quality audio and build a sense of readiness and flexibility within various situations. Topics include microphone choice and properties, placement and boom techniques, and silent communication with the cinematographer during observational documentary scenarios.


Tyler Trumbo is a documentary filmmaker/editor at Fourth Line Films in Richmond, VA, and co-founder of RVA Documentary, a monthly meetup and social forum that encourages and resources documentary storytellers in the greater Richmond area. A proud alumnus of the Media Center, his work has been featured in The Atlantic and shown around the world including screenings at Sheffield Doc/Fest, Slamdance Film Festival, and the Virginia Film Festival. He holds an M.F.A in Documentary Film and Video from Stanford University and has served in the past as an adjunct professor at Old Dominion University.
