Holistic approach to sound

Without music, film lacks a huge piece of the story. Sound is responsible for telling the viewers how to feel: happy, sad, scared, lonely. Its an integral piece of the story, and therefore, we take a holistic approach with our students. Our program covers dialogue, sound effects, mixing and mastering. You’ll become familiar with technology and a variety of other devices you’ll encounter in the workforce. From Foley recording, to production audio techniques, background and sound effects, and more, this program explores a variety of aspects involved in creating the best sound and becoming an industry professional.

Work with a directors, editors and producers

If you’re interested in audio recording, that means you’re interested in becoming a part of a team who brings stories to life on the big screen. The best and most difficult of filmmaking can be bringing all of the pieces together, and working together with directors, actors, and producers to create a film. At SFI, we understand that, and prepare you to do that throughout your time at school.
