I recently purchased a new Sony handycam model 755E. I am planning to make a documentory. I would like to know which equipment I need to keep ready with me to produce a really high quality film. There will be some charectors in the movie and I would like their conversations to be recorded with high quality. There will be sound effects like man walking on the floor, knocking the door etc. I would like to have all these sounds in the documentory with real quality.
I have done some research and thinking that I need to have adobe premier pro 2.0 for video editing audition for sound mixing. I would like to know whether these are sufficient enough or do I need to have some additional hardware. I went to one video editing and sound mixing training institute and they said that the training is for 20 days and I need to purchase one hardware for sound mixing. They did not reveal what hardware it is and what software they are going to teach me. The fees is expensive. But I will go for it if it is not possible for me to learn everything by myself.
Please share your thoughts.
