Sound Doctor Visits Media
Media students had a visit from Dr. Liz Dobson, a Senior Lecturer in Music Technology at the University of Huddersfield.
She delivered a session on the history and development of sound in film and the students learned about the process and creative practice of Foley sound creation. This is the process by which sound effects are performed live in sync with a moving image and is a fun, challenging and innovative media production discipline.
The session was a great success and gave students a hands-on and professional experience. The students also got the opportunity to think about their own progression, looking at the variety of job roles available in the industry.
Paul Nataraj, Media tutor, said: “Liz is a very fine practitioner in the field and her session was of immense value to the students who found it fun-filled and extremely informative. It was good to look into career paths as our students will soon be taking their first steps into a professional career of their own.”
