Creating Audio for Film, Television and Video Games

If you are interested in creating sound and music for film, television and video games, you owe it to yourself to check out our new Post Production Sound and Music Program. There are many fascinating and challenging aspects to master in the post sound and music field, from basic dialogue, ADR and sound editing, to foley recording, 5.1 surround sound mixing and sound design creating the signature sound effects for alien creatures, lasers, magic spells and the like!

Be it a fast paced car chase, a romantic comedy or a video game boss battle with a 12-story-tall dragon, music composition and songwriting of literally every style (orchestral, hip-hop, rock, electronic, dubstep, etc.) are in demand for today’s feature film, television and video game soundtracks.

A solid foundation in post-production sound is essential for careers in related fields like commercial work, online media, theme park attractions and location based entertainment. And best of all, here at the Recording Connection, you get our exclusive one-on-one hands-on mentoring and training, working side by side with top professionals in the field.

As a Recording Connection student, you will study as an apprentice (extern) under award-winning sound designers, mixers, and composers who have contributed to films like Black Hawk Down, The Prince Of Egypt and We Were Soldiers, as well as top video games like Batman: Arkham Asylum, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Guild Wars 2.

Why The Recording Connection Educational Model Works So Well.

Post-production sound disciplines such as dialogue editing, sound design, mixing, foley and music composition have all traditionally followed the same industry proven artistic/trade method of the master and his apprentice (extern). Getting good at this craft simply requires lots of hands-on time and “one to one” feedback specifically tailored to each individual’s talents and unique skill set. This is why we emphasize one-on-one training with a mentor, rather than the typical classroom setting.

Why Post Production Audio Is A Growth Industry

With an increasing number of independent films being produced each year, as well as the recent explosion of online entertainment and the move toward more content specific Internet media programming (Apple TV, Roku, Netflix, Hulu Plus, YouTube), there now exists a new and growing demand for post-production sound professionals to partner with and service these up and coming Internet broadcast and independent film production companies.

How To Make All Those Hours You Spent On Video Games Pay Off

The video game industry is all grown up and has become a rather substantial market. Along with this development, the experience level and technical expertise required for sound and music professionals seeking work in this field has also grown. Providing audio and music for video games requires a very specialized set of skills well-beyond post-production sound alone. Individuals seeking to work and succeed in this area often have to demonstrate knowledge and experience in all aspects of sound and music, as well as some basic understanding of computer programming and asset management. The fact is that there are very few places in existence where you are able to get the level or quality of education and hands-on experience that today’s video game companies demand.  The only way to get it is really to learn within the field—to apprentice (extern) within the industry itself.  And that's exactly where the Recording Connection puts you.

The Harsh Reality

Nowadays, a diploma or degree does not offer you a guaranteed way of getting your foot in the door in the entertainment business. Actually, it never really did, but this is perhaps more true today than ever before. Being successful in this industry simply requires skill, experience and connections, all of which can be easily gained through an on-the-job apprenticeship (externship).

The Best Solution

The Recording Connection’s mentor/apprentice educational model means you will learn post-production sound and music from someone who already has a track record of creating audio for film, television and video games. Your mentor will be an established veteran of post-production audio work with a client list you would die for. You will learn post-production audio inside your mentor’s studio or production facility. You’ll be trained in all required audio techniques and tools, you’ll learn how the post-production business really works, and you’ll meet and connect with the players you need to know to jump start your own endeavors. The Recording Connection enables you to start on the inside of the business, from day one. Apply now for free to learn more!
