Looking for professional audio (for video production) workshop/classes in the New York area. Ideal would be something slanted towards documentary field recording, esp for HDSLR workflow, for someone with basic audio operating experience. So not for a total novice, but someone who learned on the job and so doesn't have a very good handle on the fundamental whats/whys/hows.
I know about DCTV in Chinatown. Any other suggestions would be great.
