This workshop introduces students to the fundamentals of sound, audio recording and sound design for film.  Working with Avid Protools, the week-long class teaches acoustics, proper microphone skills, multi-track recording and sound design for film and video.  In Point Park’s state-of-the-art recording suite, students will participate in recording a music artist, as well as recording dialog and sound effects for a scene from a film.

Through this workshop, students will be able to understand the processes of recording multi-track music and post-production sound for film, understand the basic uses of Avid Protools in post production sound work, refine sound recordings using editing, filtering and mixing techniques, design, build and mix a textured, multi-layered sound track consisting of dialog, sound effects, and music.

At the end of the program students will have created a mix of the song that is recorded during the week, as well as an ADR-FOLEY-FX PROJECT.  This project will consist of a full sound edit, design and mix of a scene from a film.  All existing soundtrack will be removed and the dialog, foley and music will be recreated by the student.
