This is part 2 of making your project. Sound effects can make or break a performance, be that a movie, advert, song, radio play, blog or soundtrack. How do they do that stuff where they record, edit, enhance or distort sounds in the background like Star Wars? The industry term is foley sound.

Develop your skills as a foley artist or performer using voice and sound effects and/or tech wizardry to capture and edit a work for digestion by ears.

We will explore great and horrible examples of how radio advertising works and how a narrative play is structured for a radio audience. Listen to awesome and forgettable soundtracks.

We will look at using apps like audacity or garage band to become a sound guru. So if you are a performer or IT savvy or technical like a muso then this is the course for you.

Bring your imagination as you develop make foley soundtracks using props, instruments and everyday items. Discover how sound FX can mess with an audience.
