"Images and sounds, like strangers who make acquaintance on a journey and afterwards cannot separate." - Robert Bresson. This is a course in sound design for film- taken in its broader sense, as form, and explore through creative practice, the introduction these strangers- of light and shadow/of pitch and timbre- one to the other. The course takes as foundational that there is no "no natural and preexisting harmony between image and sound" (Michel Chion), that affinities among sound and image are elective and require the guidance of skilled hands, critical eyes and attuned ears. The class covers all aspects of audio post-production are engaged in the sound design process- synchronization, effects, music recording and production, ADR (automatic dialogue replacement) and mixing for picture. Students first work with examples and move on to working with filmmakers in the process of finishing their films projects. The course is part of a collaborative studio that will bring together Sound Designers and Composers with Filmmakers in a "reel" world environment, with independent film in mind. It is in this environment, which blurs distinctions like new/old, digital/analog, real/rendered and which offers opportunities, that the learning sound designer, and/or composer, and/or filmmaker with a variety of platforms and opportunities to hone her craft and make art.
