Have you ever wondered what a sound designer does on a motion picture? How the falling of keys or the echo of a scream has a subconscious effect on you? This course will examine how sound design is created for film and how the role of a sound designer brings life to the story. Using Pro Tools software and clips from award-winning films, students will create soundscapes for short in-class exercises. We will discuss and witness the dance between music, dialogue and effects, and break down the motivations that go into creating an emotional and powerful sound design for a film. PREREQUISITE: A working knowledge of the Macintosh computer operating system. NOTE: Lab time is included in the instructional hours; additional lab time is not available.
