Introduction

The Audible Eyeball blog will cover the tools and techniques needed to create vibrant multimedia presentations, in addition to showcasing examples of outstanding multimedia presentations for inspiration.

Tools: the blog will discuss equipment options for audio capture (e.g., digital recorders, microphones), image capture (e.g., still and video cameras, lenses, lighting & light modifiers), and software to edit both audio and images for multimedia, as well as software to blend those audio files and images together into a coherent whole.

Techniques: it’s not enough to understand the equipment. ┬áThis blog will also discuss techniques for using that equipment to gather high-quality audio and images for multimedia (e.g., optimal placement of microphones for clean audio).

Inspiring Ideas: The blog will also seek out interesting & effective examples of multimedia today.  More than anything, this blog will strive to be a source of inspiration and ideas for people who want to learn and improve their ability to combine images, sound and graphic elements into a single package to communicate ideas and emotional experiences.

I hope you enjoy and contribute to the conversation.
