Post Production (Sound Design)

Our Post Production Training Program give the student the skills required to work in the post production sector of the audio industry. Here the student learns how to create sound fields, sound effects, sound designs using sample libraries.

Basic Video Editing

We also include basic Video editing in this training program, here the student learns how to use video editing software to create transition effects, video effects, text rendering, video packaging into different video formats (AVI, MOV, MPEG etc).

Sound design is not just about placing audio samples in time to a movie but exactly what its name says 'Sound Designer'. Sound designers are constantly creating sound fields or creating sounds never heard before like the Pod Racer sounds in Star Wars or the drop tone in Battleships.

Without being able to analyze your sound design, recognize the elements required in a sound and constructing it layer for layer you may just find out what an uncontrollable monster you have created.

All training is individual, hands-on training, no groups. To enhance the students training it would be advisable for the student to have their own laptop PC/Mac.
