Sound and film workshops now available

In recognition of the need for more sound professionals in the Northern Territory, Screen Territory has partnered with the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) to provide sound recording workshops.

Screen Territory is currently calling for applications for two Introductory Location Sound Recording Workshops being held in Alice Springs and Darwin this month.

Director Screen Territory Penelope McDonald said this was a great opportunity for film enthusiasts and professionals to take advantage of and develop their skills.

“The workshop will be held over three days and those involved will learn the latest sound recording techniques used to capture speech and sound effects using portable recording equipment,” she said.

The workshops will focus on:

  • Sound propagation and capture
  • Microphones and mixers
  • Analogue and digital signal paths
  • Recording Environments
  • Recorder operation

“Every good film needs good sound and this is a great way to help develop and hone knowledge in this industry,” Ms McDonald said.

“By the end of the course you’ll be able to set up and operate a range of portable sound recording equipment commonly used in film and television production.”

The workshop is taking place in Alice Springs on 20 to 23 June and in Darwin on 23 to 25 June.

Applications close on Wednesday 15 June so get in quick!
