„Films are 50 percent visual and 50 percent sound.“

David Lynch

The workshop will give students the opportunity to explore the possibilities of sound design, dialogue recording and editing, foley and sound mix. They can choose to enhance one one their own films, or to recreate the sound layer for a short piece of a commercial movie from scratch – maybe changing the perception entirely.
