Droneward Bound: An RJFS Original Short

Taught By:

Kevin Senzaki


Ashly and Lauren end up frantically chasing Matt's escaped drone across Los Angeles after borrowing it without asking... and learn something about themselves along the way.

An original short by RJFS, shot in locations with the crappiest sound possible, all for your education.

Lesson Plan

We shot this original short in specific locations around Los Angeles that had problematic sound– all so we could demonstrate how audio repair works.

Watch the related tutorial on noise reduction!

Wondering just how bad the location sound was? Watch the short with its untouched, original production audio!

Featuring: Ashly Burch, Lauren Haroutunian, Matthew Arnold, Joey Scoma, Cherish Chen, & Freddie Wong
