You may know me as Brendo from the band Scott & Brendo, or from the cinematic duo Bytheway-May

I've been working as a sound engineer and music producer for more than ten years. In that time, I've made lots of filmmaker friends, many of which operate as a one-person production. They handle everything themselves, including sound. Even if they are working with a small crew, there often aren't enough resources to hire a dedicated sound person. If you find yourself in a similar situation, The Filmmaker's Guide to Audio is for you. I'm passionate about sound and I want to help you improve.

"I was Brenden's first student. In that span of time, I learned so much that it completely changed the trajectory of my life. I had a career change and everything. I feel like I've become a valued collaborator and contributor. But for me it all comes down to the core ideas that are contained in this course."

- Doug May


"I have had people tell me how much better my content looks, which it doesn't. It looks exactly the way it always did, it just sounds better. And somehow that makes them actually think it looks better."

- Mya F.


"One of the areas of post-production I knew I was lacking in was sound. I have the basic average gear, but I wanted to really make that stuff sing.... This course has been invaluable for that"

- Gabe Casdorph


"I spent close to $20k in sound gear.... and I still wasn't satisfied with my videos. Looking back, it kills me I didn't buy this course ages ago. Gear lasts at best a couple of years, but training lasts your whole life"

- Robert J.


"Before taking this course I only could add sounds in my video, but now thanks to this course I can add human voice, ambient sounds, and music and I can mix all of them"

- Seigo
