Thanks, Volunteers!

We are proud to conclude another successful run at the Marin County Fair! A heartfelt thanks to all of the volunteers who represented CMCM. Your time, energy, and support mean the world to us. Simply put -- we couldn't be the wonderful organization we are without members like YOU. We would also like to thank local artist Dickens 44 for lending his captivating "Selfie Hipsters" for our animated photobooth. His art stole the show and inspired children and adults alike!

We also owe a big shout out to John MacLeod, the executive director of XRlibraries (formerly VARLibraries), without whom we wouldn't have our prime location in the Exhibit Hall! Thank you for inviting us to share your space year after year.

Finally, thank you Marin! Your participation and enthusiasm make public media possible. We're so glad you stopped by. Hopefully, we'll be seeing some new faces around the center soon.

Don't Settle for Bad Sound. Like Your Mic!

"There's a reason the A is listed first in AV. It's audio/visual not visual/audio," says Master Communications Group, a highly experienced team of Minneapolis video production professionals.

"Amateur producers often focus too much on the video side of a project and forget the importance of the audio. Poorly recorded sound will kill a video more than poor video quality. When you watch a video and the audio quality is not good, the first thing your brain says is, 'The picture looks bad.' Here is just a short list of what can make an interview sound like Charlie Brown's teacher:

• Using a camera mic for the interview
• Improper placement of microphone
• Wrong microphone chosen for the task
• Using a phone to shoot the interview

The bottom line is: your video is only as good as your sound.”

Our friends at PhillyCAM (Philadelphia Community Access Media) have created a few short videos that will help you choose and use the best mic for your video. Watch and learn!
