Audio for Filmmaking presented by MOFA +Midwest Photo!

Join Midwest Photo's video consultant and class instructor, Mat Marrash, for this introduction to using audio for filmmaking. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to: 


  • Learn the different types of audio sources used in video
  • Discover how to setup and position different microphones for the best audio possible.
  • Learn how to integrate audio into their current video workflow
  • Handle some of the latest pieces of audio technology, courtesy of Rode Microphones


All students are encouraged to bring their current DSLR, mirrorless, or video camera with them for questions and hands-on microphone use. Even if you’re shooting videos using a smartphone or tablet, there’s still a lot you can do with audio!
