RECORDING FROM HOME
ONE-DAY CLASS:
 
Are-U-Game Workshop includes one comprehensive 4+ Hour Class

 

Auditions, reels, and self-records have always been an integral part of game casting. Recent global changes have placed a greater need for virtual production and remote recording for games. Most projects require actors to re-orient their home recording systems to professionally engineer and perform remotely. In this 4+ hour class, we’ll discuss best practices for choosing microphones, preamplifiers, using reflection filters, addressing sound transference, evaluating room size and booths, and proper mic placement. We’ll also demonstrate PCB’s proprietary remote recording rigs, and discuss working with script on screen, video etiquette, ADR, and working from home. Students will learn how to orient their work space, mic techniques, and interfacing with game teams. This 1-Class Online Workshop is taught by the award winning directing/casting team of PCB Productions - the studio behind some of the industry’s biggest game franchises, including Call of Duty, Titanfall, Saints Row, Rainbow 6, and Persona.
