A Crash Course on Sound Design!


CrashPad director Shine Louise Houston created CRASH COURSE, an educational program for new adult producers. In addition to free resources such as how to videosarticlesnewsletters (with casting calls and festival submissions), and an international adult film calendar, there are workshops covering everything from affiliate marketing to camera work.

The next workshop is with Shine's collaborator and sound designer C. Daddio, who has worked on her films SNAPSHOT and BIRTHDAY, and CrashPad "spin-off" PUT the NEEDLE on the RECORD.

Quiet on set! Gain the basics and best practices of sound recording and editing for picture. In this special course with guest instructor C. Daddio, we’ll discuss the two most common types of microphones, learn how to get the most from your camera sound, and gain an overview of field and production recording. Then, we’ll cover editing sound with dialogue, ambience, sound effects, and go over common mistakes — and how to avoid them.

About the instructor: C. Daddio is the owner of Oakland Hi-fi DIY recording studio Donut Time Audio, and a guitarist for the post-punk garage quartet Everyone Is Dirty. He has been active in the Bay Area art and music scene for over 20 years, having worked on numerous film projects, music recordings, and sound design. He was the Sound Designer for Shine Louise Houston’s films SNAPSHOT and Birthday.
