Thanks to everyone who attended the insightful Microphone Workshop with Daniel Birch.
Dan has been recording film and television sound for over thirty years. His experience ranges across documentary, drama, live sound, and also post production sound. His most recent credits include 'Vikings' (Best Sound - Canadian Screen Awards 2017); Jim Sheridan's 'The Secret Scripture' & 'In America'; TV comedy drama 'Damo & Ivor', along with a host of other titles. Dan has worked in OB and also as a music engineer.
The workshop was practical in nature. Along with an overview on the many types of microphones, we also had four to five different 'recording scenarios' that were suggested by members, followed by a personal 'Sound Clinic', where Dan went through different recording gear and 'ironed out' any queries.
