On the 27th March my team Constant pictures, led a workshop which enabled others to learn different technical skills used in film making. The workshop was also utilised as a personal development opportunity for members of my team. We had to teach others a skill that we had learnt during the course of being on the Headstart programme. We each chose a skill that we would feel most comfortable to teach to other individuals. In which I felt most confident that I had mastered how to operate the sound kit.
The sound kit comprised of the following equiptment;
- Head phones
Before demonstrating to the audience, I explained to them what the sound kit is used for, and examples of when it would be used.
During the workshop, I demonstrated the basics of a sound kit:
- Turning the device on/off
- How to use the boom & boomstick
- How to record/pause/stop
After explaining the basics, I briefly illustrated them how to control the sound volume; recording volume and the peak levels.
I feel that my workshop went really well, as we received positive feedback from the audience. However, I missed out on explaining a few little details, as the time went by quickly. But luckily I got across all the information needed to be able to do the task.
Here are videos of some of the participants giving feedback on the workshop:
