Chapter 3. Shooting > Sound Coverage

Sound Coverage

It's important to think of sound as its own entity, like video, and not as an essential component of video. You can look at images with no sound (snapshots, silent movies), and you can listen to sound with no images (radio, CDs). Keep this in mind when you watch your video: You are actually doing two things at the same time—seeing the video and listening to the audio recorded with it.

Consequently, when we discuss coverage, there are two kinds: There is sound coverage you need to get, as well as the video coverage we described above. The first (and most obvious) sound you need is the synchronous, or “sync,” sound that goes along with the video you've been shooting.
