In this highly practical, workshop-based subject, students explore the use of professional microphones, professional sound recording devices, and working with professional sound editing, mixing and design software, such as Pro Tools. A broad range of technical and creative aspects of microphone selection and use, location recording techniques, boom operation, dialogue editing, track-laying, effects editing, foley-effects, automated dialogue replacement (ADR) and the various stages of sound design and mixing will be examined. Students actively engage with creative problem-solving through classwork and bespoke assignments.
