This course will introduce you to the process of designing a “soundtrack” for film. This can be anything from a short movie over a TV ad to an animation project. The goal is to create an understanding of how sound can be used to support and enhance the overall visual entertainment experience.
Amongst with some technical aspects that will be dealt with the focus lies strongly on the effect sound can have when it is applied in a creative and pro-active way. During the course you will create your own soundtrack to a visual medium of your choice using your favorite software.
Basic knowledge of how to operate a recording/sequencer software is recommended although not necessary.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this on line course, it was a real big eye opener. The information available from both the on line resources and from the comments that Bastian has made over the past 4 weeks have been invaluable to me. Battle Bee was indeed a challenge, but not an impossible one to achieve. Working on the animation had it's ups and downs for me... there were times I thought "this is a bit much for 10 hours per week"... so I did what I thought was the right thing to do... I put in more than the required 10 hours. In week 3 I think it was pretty close to 20 hours in total. I would like to thank the SAE on line course staff for all their hard work on putting such a comprehensive program together. A personal thanks to Bastian too... his advice was taken in the manner it was intended as constructive criticism. I took his advice on board and noticed how much of a difference it made to the overall sound and feeling of the animation. Thanks Bastian, you are a good guy!
