This month at the Tech Table we will continue our mini seminar on dubbing techniques. We left off with an introduction to the split-thread method and will discuss the varied ways it can be used for different effects. We will also be covering some different designs of dubbing blocks for creating dubbing brushes. There will be some great information to be shared so don’t miss this one right after the tying demo.
