AU: 4.0
Programme: ADM

Sound is one of the key elements of a film. It plays an important role in sculpting its emotional landscape and its formal qualities are especially relevant in the support of filmic narrative. Through a combination of lecture and practice, this course will examine the fundamental elements of sound and the aesthetic principles of sound language and design in the support of a film. A component of this examination will be a study of significant precedents in the genre. This will include a technical examination of the processes of capturing sound in various recording media and environments and manipulating it in post-production audio engineering facilities. Students are reminded that ADM rules on attendance and plagiarism are in operation within all ADM courses as laid out in the ADM Student handbook
