Film Chattanooga “Sound For Film And Video” Seminar

Tuesday, November 06, 2012

Film Chattanooga is holding a seminar that focuses on sound recording techniques for film and video production on Thursday, Nov. 15  at 6:30 p.m. at the downtown Chattanooga YMCA. Attendance is free for Chattanooga Film Society members and $5 at the door for non-members.

“Sound is fifty percent of any movie, and it is often the most neglected part of independent film,” according to Chattanooga Film Society founder Dave Porfiri. This seminar is geared toward independent filmmakers interested in improving their projects by increasing their knowledge of sound production and is an opportunity to network among local film industry professionals and peers.

The seminar will be led by sound professional Keith Nolan, who will demonstrate proper techniques and use of sound equipment on set and in post production.

A native of Chattanooga, Keith Nolan began his career at the local news station WRCB Channel 3. In 2007 he moved to New York City and became a quality control technician for a post production facility in Manhattan and began assembling his location sound rig while working with film students from NYU and Columbia University. He has been credited as the location sound mixer on over 40 independent films. In 2012 he returned to Chattanooga and established Awen Audio Design, a full service post audio facility located in Soddy Daisy.

Film Chattanooga, an initiative of the Chattanooga Film Society, promotes film production activity in Southeast Tennessee, and aims to raise the professional standards for the film and television production community in the region.

Tom Dugan Was A Good Man
