Course Description

Sound design is at the very heart of a film, theatre or TV show, when done well it has the power to make us feel a wide range of emotions from fear to sadness and joy to pain.

This 2-day course will immerse you in the world of sound design. You will learn both the technical and creative skills required to create sounds that enhance the drama on stage and on screen. Using synthesisers and existing sounds you will use Logic Pro X to create your own original sounds and soundscapes to enhance the action in a theatre production (scripts will be provided). You will learn how to communicate emotion and meaning through sound design whilst working in state of the art facilities using industry standard equipment to create mind-bending sounds and soundscapes.

Activities

• Learning about and creating the elements of a soundtrack
• Reading, understanding and working from a script
• Storytelling through sound design
• Audio recording, manipulation and sound design
• Qlab – programming and performing sound for theatre
• How to work well with Directors and other production team members


On completion of this course, participants will have created a short showreel that may be submitted as part of an Arts Award or ASDAN qualification.
