A location sound recordist is a critical member of a film crew or television
crew whose function is to capture relevant sound and sound effects from a
television or film shoot location for later inclusion in the finished
product, or for reference to be used by the sound designer, sound effects
editors or foley artists.
A boom operator is an assistant of the production sound mixer. The principle
responsibility of the boom operator is microphone placement, sometimes using
a "fishpole" with a microphone attached to the end. He or she will also
place wireless microphones on actors when it is necessary.

production throughout Arizona, are sponsoring the workshops.
