Intro to Audio Post-Production

Intro to Audio Post-Production


for Film & Television

Technology is ever-evolving, and that includes innovations in audio post-production for film and television. This 12-hour course will give students a hands-on, in-depth look into the specific techniques and strategies used by working professionals during the post-production process. Topics include: audio editing, signal processing, sound effects and foley, basic scoring (for both musicians and non-musicians), and mixing using Adobe Audition.

The course begins with an accessible overview of audio post-production history through the digital revolution of today, while also touching on practical software like Apple GarageBand. Students will apply techniques learned in class projects to prepare for real-world situations they may experience while working on projects in the future, such as how to proactively ask questions, troubleshoot problems as they arise, and work together towards a common creative goal. This class features a small classroom setting, post-audio gear, ample 1-1 time with equipment (including iMac computer set-up) and lead by professional sound engineer and University of Texas lecturer, Todd Thompson.
