About this Unit
This unit is the final stage in the Composition and Music Production sub-major sequences. The unit is also available to Media Arts Production and Creative Industries students. The unit aims to prepare students creatively and technically to undertake self-directed sound composition projects for screen media. The areas to be examined include: sound studio techniques, mix processing for sound recording and screen media, an introduction to surround audio techniques, sound composition (score-based and/or sound-scape) for screen, film spotting for sound, audio-visual interactions, and professional communication/pitching of sound composition proposals. Each student produces a complete sound-composition for screen package including sound composition, sound recording, screen media product (including film), and promotional documentation and samples.
