Sound Recording & Design

This course introduces the aspiring filmmaker to film sound language, knowledge, and techniques. More than just hanging a microphone over a set and recording what the actors say, sound design ensures that the narrative comes across to the audience; in fact, one of the points emphasized in the class is how to use film found as a device for telling stories.

What will be covered
  • Brief history of film sound in the world and in the Philippines.
  • Introduction to film sound terminologies used in the industry both in Hollywood and in the Philippines.
  • Techniques, workflows, and practices of professional film sound practitioners in all the stages of filmmaking (pre-production, production, and post-production.)
  • Basic technical knowledge of all the recording devices and sound editing software used in the film industry.
  • Tips on how to properly record sound during film production.
  • How to fix your production sound recordings during post production and what to do if you really can’t fix it.
  • Tips on how to survive in the industry as a film sound practitioner.
  • How to use film sound as a device to tell our stories more effectively to the audience.
Who should attend

Anyone who wants to be a filmmaker should have at least a basic knowledge of film sound. Film is an audio/visual medium. Lack of knowledge and skill in film sound will limit your chances of getting good sound on set and prevent you from avoiding sound problems in post production.


Background in music is an advantage but not required. As long you you have a pair of ears and they are still working, you can learn film sound.
