Creating Sound F/X for Video Games


Via Zoom

Note: This program is not hosted by the Courtenay Elementary Community School Society, but Beau Stocker has done events at Courtenay Elementary in the past, so I'm passing this along as this program looks like a lot of fun!

Ever wondered how the sound of horse hooves were created in TV or film? Or how the sound of a creaking door opened at just the right time was made? All the sounds you hear in films, TV and video games are created by foley artists, who reproduce everyday (and not so everyday!) sound effects.

This set of workshops will explore the world of a foley artist – from sound creation and recording, through to sound manipulation. Each participant will create their own library of sounds and apply them to an existing video game on the Scratch platform.

This is a 5-session program, running April 17 thru May 15 (NEW DATES), (5 Saturdays), from 10am-Noon, on Zoom.

Designed for ages 14-17.  There are 10 spaces available, to allow for maximum interaction and collaboration within the cohort.
