RTVF 120 - Sound Design for FilmSemester Hours: 3
This class will explore sound design from historical, technological and practical perspectives. Examples of professional sound design will be screened to give students the opportunity to learn from the work of classic and contemporary filmmakers. Screenings will be related to the development of their own work through discussion, analysis and consideration of technical and creative choices made by filmmakers to achieve their goals as storytellers. Students will be introduced to the tools of the sound designer though lectures and by participating in numerous exercises, quizzes and projects. They will become experienced with the theory and profession of creating sound for film from the conception stage, through the recording and initial editing, and to the final mix of their projects. By becoming familiar with, and using the tools of the sound recordist/designer (microphones, recorders, pro-tools) in practical and creative ways, students will gain a familiarity and confidence in the process that will be carried into their professional careers.
