My experience producing my podcast was actually pretty difficult, considering I’ve never used GarageBand before. I had no previous experience with audio editing so that made it extremely tough. I found myself learning for an hour how to at least use GarageBand because I had used it before. However, after a while of learning how to use it, it actually got a lot easier and I became a little more comfortable with using GarageBand.
On RedLetterMedia.com I watched the Ghostbusters review video. I first noticed all of the background sounds in the video, before the reviewers even spoke. The camera angles were pretty simple because it kept showing the three guys who reviewed the film talking, or the camera panned to one of the guys. The camera angle was straight for the most part and it wasn’t shifting really. I like how they showed different movie reviews that popped into the screen. They zoomed in on the movie reviews by using different kind of effects. There were also different scenes from other movies that they showed in this review and there was a nice transition of different audio sounds. The guys doing the movie review, most likely have small microphones attached to their shirts to make their voices heard loudly. Then, the audio team probably is going to take what they say and increase the volume more. There are also parts of the review, where they are showing a video of Ghostbusters with no sound, while the reviewers are talking over the clip.
I never knew how much audio and editing is involved in all of the shows and entertainment that we watch. A simple movie review, like the Ghostbusters one really showed many different areas of audio and editing that I would have never realized if I wasn’t paying attention to it. It’s easy to forget about zooming effects, microphones, camera angles when watching shows.
