Diploma of attendance

Live sound is a fundamental and irreplaceable piece of a cinematographic work and constitutes – together with the voices of the actors and the music – an indispensable narrative element for the perception of the work as a whole. Live sound touches the viewer in of itself but also forms part of  the general intention of the film work.

Through this course, you will get the know the narrative and dramatic importance of direct sound and to deepen the techniques and practices of recording, post-pro sound and mixing.
