Sound Design Stream
Theme Leader: Iain McGregor firstname.lastname@example.org
The sound design stream is designed to prepare students for a career as a sound professional within a variety of creative industries. Within the field of sound it is common for professionals to work in a variety of fields concurrently, such as movie sound design as well as game sound design. So the emphasis of the stream is to prepare students to work within the following industries as a sound specialist: 2D/3D Animation, Computer Games, Interactive Applications, Movies, Music, Products, Radio and Television. Students start by studying sound theory in general terms, then progressing onto production methods for each of the different industries, finally they concentrate on advanced design practice in both practical and theoretical terms. The assessment for the stream is entirely coursework based, so that students can develop a substantial portfolio to help them when seeking employment upon graduation.
Key learning outcomes:
The ability to perform all of the tasks associated with the design and recording of sound for a wide variety of creative industries.
