VIEW THE FILM (90mins)
Brief outline and explanation of the roles of each member of the Sound Team, the location recordist, the supervising sound editor, the sound designer, dialogue editor, effects editor etc
Pick 3-5 key scenes from 'Frank' and break them down into their key layers, dialogue, production effects, sound effects, foley track, ambiences and music, and explain how the sound of each scene evolved from the script to the final mix . This will demonstrate how the sound design aesthethic evolves from the script through pre-production to the cutting room to the mix. We will do these break downs with examples of work-in-progress and final mix audio sessions from 'Frank', therefore giving the particapants a real insight into the many stages and layers that are combined to create the final mix track of a film. At all times we will be open to questions.

(2PM – 4PM)
We will delve into some other films that we have worked on that demonstrate different sound design aesthetics. The films chosen below may change but we will have examples and break downs from the films to demonstrate
From 'Mister John', sound design by Niall Brady (dir. Joe Lawlor, Christine Molloy) - Creating a sound design aesthetic from the first frame  From 'Citadel', sound design by Steve Fanagan (dir. Ciarán Foy) - Designing Fear

Open discussion with participants about where to go for more on sound design.
