Sound Design Course

Length: 15 hours (3 hours per day)

Overview: Sound Design involves the process of creating new sound elements through the manipulation of audio. In a motion picture we not only need music and dialog, we also need several audio elements that sometimes, we don’t notice they are there. Without these sound elements, a movie will turn into an awkward experience. We are talking about the Foley and the ambience sounds; for example, the sound of a fist knocking on a door, or even the sound of two laser swords colliding. Sound Design does not only explore real life sounds, but also sounds of the fiction world. Just think about this, how do you think the sound of a spaceship moving through space at the speed of light would sound like? That is why Sound Design is so important for a motion picture.
