UK - The Guildhall School of Music and Drama will host short courses on sound design and video projection at the end of July.
Taking place concurrently from 25-29 July, Sound Design for Theatre and Introduction to Video Projection Mapping are available to anyone aged 16 or over for a fee of £525 (£1,035 inclusive of accommodation). Teaching will take place daily and the training will be given in person only.
Led by Video Design lecturer Angeline Ferguson, Introduction to Video Projection Mapping is aimed at beginners. Learners will find out how to prepare and project video onto a 3D structure using industry standard video projection software Resolume Arena 7 and Adobe After Effects. They will also be introduced to the basic principles and techniques of digital video mapping, including designing concepts for projection mapping, creating content and sourcing material online, preparing digital content (file types, resolutions and codecs), setting up hardware (computers, projectors and real-world objects), keystoning, image correction and distortions. The course is for anyone interested in video projection, or those who would like to try something new, though ideally, learners would have an interest or experience in digital art, graphic design, video editing, technical theatre, gaming etc.
Sound Design for Theatre is for anyone with an interest in sound design, its manipulation and use in a theatrical or narrative context. The course will introduce learners to the practical, creative and technological aspects of sound design and management for the stage. Topics covered will include the purpose of sound within theatre and roles within this (e.g. sound designer, principal sound engineer and sound operator), as well as an introduction to relevant software and equipment (QLab and Pro Tools, mics, cables, desks, speakers, computers and interfaces FX recording and editing, as well as aspects of sound design such as atmospheres, spot FX and reinforcement). The course is taught by Guildhall School Production Arts lecturer, Grant Shalks.
