Course summary

Through this forward-thinking course, you’ll explore the creative use of sound within film and other visual media at an advanced level. The course focuses on the more creative aspects of sound design and post-production, while providing you with the necessary technical skills.

You’ll develop your work within your areas of interest without stylistic boundaries. Interdisciplinary collaboration with related fields of practice is encouraged.

Overview

The course delivers a mixture of advanced technical skills related to sound design and audio post production for film and other visual media. It also provides creatively-oriented insights into contemporary sound design practice and encourages students to push the boundaries of the field. Subject areas include:

  • Sound sculpting, processing and synthesis
  • The language and aesthetics of sound design
  • Storytelling and dramaturgy.

How will I be taught?

The delivery of the course involves a mixture of teaching and learning activities, including lectures, workshops, seminars, online study materials, and guest speaker sessions.

The workshop/ seminar sessions will include ongoing peer review and tutor support opportunities. Some parts of the course are delivered using a "flipped classroom" model, where students independently work through online study materials and tasks, which are followed up by practical support workshops.

Careers

You can use the course to develop an individually-tailored portfolio of skills. This will equip you for the current employment landscape, where a combination of traditional audio post production roles are required alongside broader practice in sound, music and other media.
