AUDIO FOR CINEMA

Requirements:
 

Hard drive (at least 256GB)
Laptop
A good set of over-ear headphones

This is a course meant to impact and expand the students’awareness of one of the most important human senses: Hearing.

During the five-week course students will be introduced to the physics of sound, types and uses of microphones, using mixers and wireless mics, choosing a location, and basic DSLR audio. Students will learn how to record great tracks with the latest portable digital audio equipment.

After all, we as viewers, can tolerate an image that is soft focus or shaky, but unless one can understand the soundtrack, the driving force behind most narrative, the film is meaningless.

Students will be tasked to create both diegetic and non-diegetic audio for a short film as well as creating an audio site-specific installation work.

ART AS PROCESS: CONTEMPLATIVE FILMMAKING

Requirements:

Video Camera
Laptop

Filmmaking and photography are so technologically intensive as to dominate the artist’s perspective and discussions of their craft. This course seeks to redress this balance by looking at the How and Why we make art. Using a unique toolbox of artistic challenges, questions, and readings the student will gain a distinct awareness of the process in their work, and how to use this to achieve their vision.

Erika Houle & Gordon Arkenberg
