The audio course for wedding filmmakers you've been waiting for.


It's time to elevate your narrative.

Great films have great sound.

Creating elevated wedding films is more than delivering compelling visuals. Your imagery needs to be supported by quality narrative and great audio. You can't expect to consistently charge a premium for your wedding films without a narrative that knocks it out the park EVERY time. That's where great audio comes in and we're going to teach you how to achieve great audio for your films EVERY TIME. We are professional audio engineers with over 30 years of large scale, real world experience and in this masterclass we will teach you how to prepare, capture, process, and mix audio specifically for wedding films. We will walk you through the fundamentals of audio from recorder setup and capture to post-production and mastering. We’ll dive into the pillars of audio that you need to be proficient in as a filmmaker such as gain structure, EQ, compression and limiting. What do you do when your primary audio source fails? We will cover that too. This masterclass will encourage you as a filmmaker, elevate your brand, and ultimately make your business more profitable.

Kaleb and Elaine are not only 2 of the most genuine and encouraging humans in the wedding film industry, they are also audio wizards. I've always known that my audio skills were lacking, but I've never been able to find any resources that have truly helped me - until now. KEJ's Audio Masterclass is NEXT LEVEL, and I know that the skills I've learned in the masterclass will take my films from *meh* to *amazing.* Thank you Kaleb + Elaine for pouring your hearts + soul into this Masterclass...it's what the wedding film industry has been needing!

I have been filming weddings for 3 years. Watching this class for just the first hour or so has already explained audio concepts and ways to capture it that I have never come across in any sort of free education (google, youtube etc).

To all of you thinking about this but not pulling the trigger: we spend so much $$ on senseless tech purchases.. upgrading cameras unnecessarily... etc! And when it comes to growing via new skills and education, we hesitate. DO NOT HESITATE here. I already bought the class and I’m flying though it and I’ve learned more about audio for filmmaking in 2 days than I had in the previous 2 years. This class is amazing. Don’t sleep on it. Audio is a thing that is SO IMPORTANT and that a lot of us just gloss over and barely get by doing! Sooooo GO GET THIS COURSE.

Audio has always been a weak spot for me. In filmmaking, I always wanted to know as much as I could about lighting, cameras, editing, and audio, but audio was definitely the part that slipped through the cracks for me. When I heard about a course that not only was dedicated to what I do now - wedding films - but focusing on how to make audio better, it was a no brainer for me. I'm hoping to turn this weak point into a strength, and now I have the tools to do it!

Elaine Jiminez

Instructor

Elaine is an Emmy Award winning technician and honor graduate of the esteemed Berklee College of Music where she graduated with a dual degree in Music Production & Engineering and Music Business/Management. She began studying classical piano at age five and her love for the arts and music has been the foundation of her career since. From working with Grammy winning artists on major record labels, to designing audio for world renown theme parks and cruise lines, she’s an immensely talented and accomplished engineer and storyteller. Elaine is KEJ’s primary editor and brings with her an incredible aptitude to craft stories with feeling, meticulous detail, and intention.

Truly a one-of-a-kind artist, you will be hard pressed to find a talent like hers anywhere else.

Kaleb Jiminez

Instructor

They say Lubbock or leave it… well, Kaleb left it. Finding himself in Orlando, FL at the fresh age of 17, this young musician discovered he loved making music sound beautiful just as much as he loved playing it. Kaleb’s career has been anything but one-dimensional. He has had the honor of working with artists such as Garth Brooks, Tricia Yearwood, Lady Antebellum, Willie Nelson, Marcus Miller, David Sanborn, Pink, to name a few, as well as having traveled internationally to work on shows such as the MTV European Music Awards in Belfast and a USO Tour through the Middle East and Africa. If you’re wondering how he has managed to accomplish so much in so little time, we’d say it’s due to his incredible work ethic and trailblazing optimism. Kaleb is the adventure in KEJ. He is the epitome of a creative director and is constantly looking to push our team into new avenues of storytelling. He is the friend you want to have in your corner, especially when you’re about to step into something big. He will push you into the greatness he knows you’re capable of, even when it means sacrificing his own aspirations.
