Filming and microphone placement in courses
When artists are being filmed plying their craft and explaining techniques, it would be great if all the offscreen participants asking questions would speak into a mic. Often you see the artist stop to listen, the viewer hears mumbling in the background and then the artist just answers the question. Being able to hear the question is sometimes imperative in understanding the answer. Matt Winston always seems to speak into a mic and those videos are great, especially when Matt seems to know a lot about the processes and brings up interesting observations, questions or even additional information that enhances the understanding of a technique that an artist hasn't necessarily explained adequately or has inadvertently skipped over.
