The day running from an 11am start through to approx 17:30 aims to inform and to promote participation both through discussion and via practical exercises. The overall aim of the day is improve awareness and practical skills in acquiring quality audio in your productions. This is an area of production which is often a weakness or is taken for granted as part of the filming process.

We will have a panel of four presenters (possibly five) taking the lead on particular areas of this broad-ranging subject, and also responding to questions and comments from the audience.
