Online Videos: Audio Post-Production

The post-production industry is now driven by the processes and applications of digital technology, and studies show that sound design is more important to the success of a project than visuals. This project-based, experiential, synchronous learning course explores the technology, creative application, and requirements for producing audio soundtracks for web videos. It covers audio post-production elements and the history and evolution of sound for online video, Pro Tools setup, location sound recording and Foley, production dialogue and ADR, working with SFX libraries, mixing music for video, the M&E Mix (Music & effects for foreign distribution), delivery and archiving. Students will create a sound design plan for a video project, create and edit sound effects, and use Adobe software to create a completed audio mix.
