Building Emotion Through Sound.
A poorly-mixed soundtrack can pull your audience out of the story as much as a good one can engage them. In the FilmSkills Audio Post-Production Course, you will learn every step of mixing dialogue, recording ADR, directing actors in ADR, recording Foley, adding sound effects, scoring the movie, working with the composer, and licensing music.
Taught by the innovators in the audio field, you will learn from industry professionals including the inventor of THX and head of audio at Apple, Tomlison Holman, the vice president of education at Audio Technica, Steve Savanyu, Hans Zimmer and John WIlliams' orchestrator Kevin Kaska, Emmy-winning Foley Artists, and over a dozen more.
Engage your audience, create the emotion, and make an experience that brings the audio for your movie on par with the visuals with the FIlmSkills Audio Post-Production kit.
"To say that they go to great pains to put together ever thing that they offer is perhaps a huge understatement. From the professionals that are on staff on to the people in the industry they interview and glean knowledge from for any and all of their products is phenomenal."
