Workshop EAW'17 | "Audio Post-Production for Cinema"
Audio Post-Production for Cinema
This workshop addresses aesthetic concepts inherent to audio for cinema and also methodologies (workflows) associated with ProTools, used in the cinematic post-production industry.
Objectives and methodologies
1. To develop a greater understanding of the function of sound in cinematic narrative
2. To present different work methodologies for use in post-production
3. To introduce a variety of ProTools editing techniques
4. To introduce the Foley process
5. To introduce the fundamental elements of the mixing process
The workshop will have a theoretic component that will explore the aesthetic, technical and methodological concepts, in addition to a practical component in which each participant may apply the theoretical knowledge acquired through a series of exercises using sound editing, the Foley process and mixing techniques.
A basic knowledge of acoustics is recommended. Familiarity with Protools is an advantage but not a requirement.
