Filmmaking (Sound Recording, Post-Production and Design)

Something happens when you add sound to an image. And filmmaking depends upon the strength of this relationship. Ultimately it's what makes a film work - it's what moves your audience. You'll learn the fundamental technical skills necessary to begin a career in screen sound, both as a location sound recordist and post-production sound designer. But equally importantly, you will gain an understanding of how a film's narrative relies on the precise partnership between image and sound. Within this programme you'll expand your existing knowledge of sound. Through recording and design you'll investigate what it means to listen with awareness and to translate that experience to your audience. And you'll study how sound is created, how you can manipulate its form, whether it's natural, synthesised, digitised or analogue, and how to work with sound as a storytelling medium. This course doesn't just deal with technique and technology and it's not about objective theory. We explore the space in between. Not only do we want you to acquire the skills and understanding to follow a career in professional filmmaking but also we prepare you to use your new-found expertise in the wider world of media and the arts.
