Some time ago I talked with David Sonnenschein (author of “Sound Design” book) about giving clases and seminars online. We do some research and started to try some platforms and a see what would be the best way to do something like this. Last Thursday David hosted the first online seminar. The announce was a little private, because it was the first time, but… the platform worked great and the attendes were satisfied with the session, so David is now announcing a public seminar, where all of you can participate. Here’s the info:
ONLINE SOUND DESIGN SEMINAR SERIES
With over a decade of teaching Sound Design in film schools throughout Europe, the U.S., Asia and South America, David Sonnenschein, is now offering the Sound Design Seminar series for all who have online access.
Sound Design Seminar is open to professionals and students, so please feel free to forward this announcement to anyone that may have interest. We will limit the number of attendees to 25 for each seminar to give everyone a chance to ask questions, so reserve early. If we’re already full, you’ll be on the list for the next seminar. In the meeting you’ll get the core ideas and applications from the book “Sound Design”.
WHAT WE’LL DO
In the second half of each unique 2-hour seminar, David will screen, analyze and discuss video clips pre-selected from submissions by the participants (max. 5 min., 100mb file size). If you have something ready or a work-in-progress, send info on the genre, length and any particular area of sound that you’d like to discuss, to dsonn22[at]gmail[dot]com.
SEMINAR TOPIC: PSYCHOACOUSTIC TOOLS FOR CREATIVITY
Do you desire to produce really effective soundtracks that reach your audience through neurobiological resonance, tapping into how they subconsciously perceive the world through sound? Would you like more access to your own brain power for finding innovative approaches and solutions? Every professional sound designer can benefit from understanding and experiencing the science of sonic storytelling. In this seminar we will explore the neurobiology and psychology of hearing and how these underlying principles can support creative sound design.
HOW TO SIGN UP
Fee: Regular $50, May Seminar Discount $40
