Overview

This course teaches students basic fluency in the use of sound for film. Students will gain an understanding of the way that sound works, it’s aesthetic and formal qualities, and specific ways it works in film language. Students will then learn to apply sound concepts to the writing, recording, editing, and mixing of film projects. Specific skills taught in the class include: recording techniques for dialogue, sound effects and ambient sound; dialogue editing; foley and dubbing; sound effect creation and mixing; ambient sound design; use of music; audio processing, and mix‐down techniques. These skills will all be taught within the conceptual frameworks of their roles in storytelling, point‐of‐view, and focalization. The class consists of a mixture of lectures and analysis workshops, as well as weekly recording sessions and in‐class editing exercises.
