Becci Manson, Retouching and Restoring
Released On: 3/27/2015
Becci Manson is out to restore the reputation of professional retouchers everywhere. She wants to prove the work she does isn't merely corrective; it's creative too. This short film features Becci's work with photographers such as Claire Rosen, Annie Leibovitz, and Christopher Griffith, who rely on Becci's insights on set as well as in post. Becci also emphasizes the importance of balancing her professional obligations with charitable ones. Following the 2011 Tōhoku tsunami in Japan, she helped organize a network of volunteers to restore over 150,000 individual printed photographs. This ongoing project with All Hands Volunteers helps disaster victims reclaim their memories, one photograph at a time.
Drum Setup and Mic'ing in the Studio
Released On: 3/27/2015
In this course, filmed on location in one of the best drum-recording rooms in Los Angeles, EastWest Studios, GRAMMY-winning recording engineer Ryan Hewitt explains his techniques for capturing drum sounds. Ryan brings in the "Drum Doctor," Ross Garfield, Los Angeles's premier drum technician, and a handpicked kit from Ross's stash of 400 drum sets. Ryan and Ross work together to set up and mic up the drum kit, getting it ready for A-list drummer Josh Freese (of Devo and A Perfect Circle) to come in the next day to record. Like a virtual studio internship, this course offers the opportunity to watch the pros at work in a real drum-recording session in a top LA studio.
