This will be achieved by exploring the concept of film sound through lectures, tutorials and practical’s. In particular students will examine a range of practical techniques such as: ADR, Foley, effect’s creation and film music composition, through producing all aspects their own short film soundtrack.

Skills in production will also be developed, including sourcing and clearance of sound materials, mixing, delivery, management and quality assurance. In order to promote investigative learning and research, students will complete readings and listening’s and perform practical exercises. The course has the following learning objectives: facilitate new understandings and exploratory approaches in sonic arts practice; extend knowledge and develop new artistic and technical skills in sound creation and design; and promote a learning process and reflexive skill set with regard to future practice, thus enabling students to adapt to the ever expanding and rapidly changing area of sonic arts and related areas of sound design.
