My father has an audio-video production studio that I wanted to inherit. However, I majored in computer science and have no clue whatsoever about how audio and video production works. The problem here is that I already have the equipment, but I do not know how to use it to produce the expected results. Unfortunately, my father doesn't have deep knowledge of the equipment either. He did his jobs by a conventional wisdom (usually trial and error) and did not take any complicated jobs that required professional knowledge.
My purpose is to extend my father's studio with my computer skills. However, I am still a total beginner in this audio-video production. Can anyone suggest me where should I start?
What I want to know is the pipeline behind the production, and all the terms and concepts.
For example, I want to know the purpose behind different features in a camera, and the meaning behind all the terms that I've seen on the labels or in an editor software (midi, damping, etc.).
