Recording Room Tone - Indy Mogul
Russel from Indy Mogul's Friday 101 show shares with us this week what room tone is, and why we should be using it in our short films. Basically room tone is the sound of a room when everything is completely quiet. For example in a silent room there may be a flickering sound from a light bulb, slight hissing sounds from plumbing or buzzing sounds from computers or electrical products. These sounds can be hear when recording dialogue audio for your short films. If you record the room tone separately, it can be used to cover up jump cuts between the audio, making your audio seem smoother.
