MPFV300 Sound Design for Film 3 cr.


This course will offer an in depth look at the use of recorded sound within the context of moving image production. Live sound and expanded cinema experiments will also be encouraged. Students will be expected to produce 2-3 sound film/video pieces during the course of the semester and are expected to come prepared to develop their own work under guidance of the course instructor. Time each week will be allocated to technical demonstrations of studio equipment (including various workshops exploring Pro-Tools audio software), recording and mixing experiments, and discussions on the many aesthetic and conceptual frameworks of cinematic sound. Examples from the history of cinematic sound will be screened on a weekly basis throughout the semester. In addition to weekly course meetings, students will be expected to meet certain scheduled benchmarks in the production of their projects.
