This workshop concentrates on the foundation and principles of audio post-production and the effective manipulation of dialogue, music, and sound effects to create a unified soundtrack. We will also explore the power of sound design as an integral part of storytelling in film and video productions.
An overview of audio production and post-production, combined with a discussion about the relationship between them will be explored to determine how the quality of sound elements affects the overall experience. A strong focus will be placed on the elements that make up a soundtrack and its importance in film production. We will also deconstruct and recreate our own sound design track for a scene.
Upon completion of this course, students will have learned the best post-production practices involved in bringing audio from the set to the screen, as well as the basic approaches to sound design.
