Membership is easy! We offer three levels of membership that suit the various ways people interact with Ed Video. The process of becoming a member is as simple as completing a form and paying the membership fee.
In this workshop, we'll get hands-on with Ed Video's audio gear to record a voice-over or narration. Learn how to operate an audio recorder, microphone and reflector shield to capture studio sound. We'll also cover important techniques to keep in mind when working with performers, and how to work with the recording in post.
