This course will cover the fundamental elements of producing, designing, and editing sound for the moving image. Students will learn the basics of audio recording, editing, and using the multi-track software Pro Tools. Topics to be covered include microphone applications, experimental recording techniques, application of audio effects, and building creative layers of sound to create an impactful design. We will be screening, studying, and critically analyzing the historical to present-day works of sound in the moving image. We will also complete weekly practices for Foley footsteps, dialogue replacement, and creative sound design that will be the building blocks towards your final projects for the second session.
The second half of this course is dedicated to post-production using Foley techniques and field recordings to capture original audio clips. Each student will be assigned a 1-minute sound design project and will be required to mix and reproduce the dialogue, Foley, effects, and music. Collaborative work is expected and can be done remotely by sharing media files online with classmates. Instruction, screening, and critique will continue to happen throughout the second session.
