Sound Recording for Motion [motion picture] Indiana U Audio-Visual Center

Indiana U Instructional Support Ser 1960
Brief Annotation:
Portrays the work of the motion picture soundman in arranging the set and recording acceptable sync-sound on location. Contrasts the features that make a sound studio ideal for recording to the problems inherent in recording on location. Emphasizes three major recording problems and their solutions--acoustical treatment of set, choice and placement of microphone, and controlling unwanted noise. Some of the sources of "electrical hum" in recording equipment and ways to eliminate them are indicated.
