The Importance of Good Audio

Having high quality audio is just as important, if not more important than the picture quality. Most people can put up with a couple of camera bumps, or out of focus shots when watching something (not saying we slack of on picture quality!), but if the audio is bad people we switch if off very quickly.  That’s because it is really hard to know what any video, movie or TV show is about without audio, what’s communication if we can’t here it.  Just think about how often you’ve stopped watching a YouTube video because the audio was shocking.

Aperture Films take both the audio and video quality of our productions very seriously and we put just as much effort in to both. We have a range of microphones and audio recording equipment that allows us to capture high quality audio in almost any situation.

Not only do we have high quality equipment, we also have the expertise to operate it properly. We also often spend just as much time editing the audio as editing the video to ensure that our videos are easy to hear all the way through and that you are not turning the volume up and down throughout different parts of the videos.

When you are getting a video produced of your next big event, Aperture Films will have everything sorted including excellent quality sound.


$4 Accessory that makes any car faster (Guaranteed)

I drive on the Geelong Ring road freeway every day to get to and from work.  One thing that I frequently noticed is something that some cars have that make them go faster than all the other cars.

I set my cruise control to exactly 100km/h, and I must say that Ford have done an excellent job on the cruise control as it holds the speed perfectly in my Ranger.  Now, nearly every day I see a car coming up rapidly behind me and then they pass me and quickly disappear out of site.  How could this be?  I wonder!  I know I am doing the speed limit, so what makes these cars faster than mine.

Then I noticed what it was, all these cars that go past me seem to have the same accessory applied to there car, you can buy it from any service station for around $4.50 or so.  It comes in 2 different colours, red and green, but that doesn’t seem to make a difference on performance.

I guess I should reveal what these cars have that mine doesn’t, and it seems to be the common factor that makes them faster – P Plates!  that’s right those plates that are put on the windows of cars so we know they are on a Probationary licenses.  These thins seems to add so much performance to any car, they all travel faster on the freeway, they accelerate faster, they stop faster, they corner faster.  Maybe I should invest in some, although their are downsides.

Here’s some information I got from the TAC website

  • As soon as newly licensed drivers switch from their L’s to their P’s they’re 30 times more likely to crash.*
  • Road crashes are the single biggest unintentional killer of young people aged 18-25 years in Victoria.
  • Young drivers are at greatest risk of dying or being seriously injured in the first six to twelve months of probationary driving.
  • Young drivers tend to over-estimate their level of ability and are more optimistic than they should be about their chances of not being involved in a crash.
  • Parents have also been found to over-estimate their child’s safety as a new driver.
