Perfectly Sync Your Audio in Adobe Premiere Pro

Hello everyone, today I wanted to share with you a way to perfectly align you audio in Premiere Pro.  I know this seems to have been covered by a lot of different people, but unfortunately most of them did not show how to do it correctly to this degree.  (I actually haven't seen one video with this method yet)  So feel free to watch this video and prepare to be amazed!

This method is excellent for all purposes, but comes in extremely handy when syncing multiple clips together that you plan on using both sets of audio.  This will help avoid weird vocal distortion or echo.  Thanks for stopping by and feel free to check out my YouTube channel for more great videos!

Zalman ZM-MIC 1 as a Lavaliere Microphone

If you are looking for a cheap yet very effective microphone with a long cord and can record in both channels, then look no further.  The Zalman ZM-MIC 1 is very impressive for its price and will save me from performing an extra task in post.  Since it records in both the left and right channels.  Give this a watch and hear it for yourself!

Cycles - Directed by Chad Bredahl

Cycles was an interesting short that I had the opportunity to make.  The idea behind it was conceived on my drive down state.  Upon arrival I started laying out shots on paper and in my head.  The story and concept grew from there.  It was shot in a pretty short amount of time only consisting of a late night and a portion of a morning.  Yet I was figuring out my shots on the fly and the angles I wanted as well.  I used my DIY led lights to create atmospheric lighting.  Mainly just the individual lights themselves and scattered them around the room and areas we shot in.  So here it is, give it a watch, and let me know what you thought of it!  Thanks!
