This course offers students interested in the practical application of sound design techniques in a post production environment the opportunity to work collaboratively with student film composers on real-world projects. Students in this class will work with all non-music aspects of film sound including dialog, ambience, foley, and sound effects. Special emphasis will be placed on finding creative solutions to post production challenges as well and the interrelationship of music and sound design. Work for the course will include one project using an existing cut scene from a major release and a second project that will be a student film from a local college. Lectures and discussions will cover analysis techniques, and work flow examples, and in-depth critiques of work in progress. The class will meet concurrently with FS-481, Film Scoring Practicum, and combined class meetings will be held throughout the semester.
