By manipulating what you hear and how you hear it and what other things you don't hear, you can not only help tell the story, you can help the audience get into the mind of the character.

– Walter Murch. Apocalypse Now editor. 

Sound is what truly convinces the mind is in a place, in other words hearing is believing

- Jesse Schell The Art of Game Design

Dates: 2nd - 4th April 2021

There is no understating the importance of good sound quality in a film. Anything less distracts your audiences and instantly lowers the quality of your film, no matter how much you invested in the quality of the picture. Good quality sound engages your audience for longer, enhances your video and enriches your narrative.

In these practical workshops you will learn to work on the sound mix and what needs to happen for your films to sound great. From sound theory to dealing with badly recorded takes, you will learn the foundations of sound post production and improve your understanding of audio in general. 

This is a hands-on workshop for filmmakers wishing to improve their all-round skills to improve the quality of their films or for people wanting to start a career in audio post-production for moving image. The skills taught in the workshop are applicable to audio work for gaming and for the stage as well and for helping understand the creative possibilities of sound and image.

You will be also have a one-on-one session with the workshop leader to discuss issues and find solutions with your project.
