SQIFF 2019
Workshop: Sound for Screen with Seamus Stewart-Skinner

Sun 6 October 2019

Join Seamus Stewart-Skinner as he delivers a Sound Department 101 for beginners, combining a brief history of sound in cinema with hands on teaching of how sound is captured on set. Explore and be inspired by the ingenuity of early sound designers who created the language of sound in modern cinema. Then get to grips with the basics of location sound recording and boom operating, testing your skills in a practical environment. Use industry standard equipment and learn how to run your own sound department for independent film. Give yourself a running start to gaining entry to the sound department on commercial TV and film sets. You will leave with a new or renewed passion for cinema sound and the skills to get yourself started.
