Old Lyme, CT (October 10, 2012)—Multi-award-winning video journalist Geert Verdickt has joined forces with Sennheiser for a series of tutorials on audio for video filmmakers.
"If you're asking me what is the most underestimated power of filmmaking, that would be sound," says filmmaker Verdickt, a Belgium-based video journalist. In a total of five episodes, Verdickt shows ambitious filmmakers how to record perfect sound for videos, and does it in a way that is both professional and entertaining.
"The video series is packed with useful tips on every aspect of audio for video, ranging from everyday situations to particularly challenging filming environments," explained Oliver Ohrndorf, marketing manager professional at Sennheiser. "The tutorials are aimed at video journalists, video filmmakers and amateurs who want to enhance their video images with excellent sound. Geert Verdickt is not only an outstanding video filmmaker but also an entertainer who is able to inspire and motivate his audience."
The subjects dealt with in the tutorials include wireless audio recording, choosing the right microphone, recording with DSLR cameras and using shotgun microphones, as well as tips and tricks for avoiding proximity effect and reducing wind noise.
The tutorials also provide participants a chance to win a prize by answering a question on the subject. For each episode, there will be a chance to win three combinations of an MKE 600, Sennheiser's new video shotgun microphone and a set of HD 25-II headphones. The winners will be drawn from all the correct answers submitted.
New tutorials will be uploaded to www.sennheiserusa.com/audioforvideo every two weeks through November 14.
