Il course for video-audio maker will allow the students to sharpen their ear the video shooting techniques and learn those concepts that will lead them to deal with audiovision. To this end the great cinema, the sequences of the great films, help a lot, precisely because of the narrative and sound characteristics, will be a starting point for the students to learn to dominate the sound universe, to segment it and to reason about the short time of a scene, on the long time of an entire film, and to learn to deal with a great sound polyphony that cinema, and audiovision in general, present.

In a film there are different sound sources, ranging from the sound of the voices, to the sound of the music, to the sound of the effects, and to the special effects, and we also have a creative composition within a scene or sequence or a whole movie. It is often thought that a film or an audiovision is in general a visual product, in reality they are an acoustic and visual product, in which sound plays an exceptionally important, extremely important role. The experience ensures that teachers are able to achieve extraordinary results from an educational point of view. In fact, the ear of a student, who thinks he knows everything about music and sound, subjected to this type of intensive intervention that takes place within the course, improves his perception of the sound of a percentage that goes from 70% to '80%.

The objectives of the course for video-audio makers

The sound is one of the most precious and least known among those available to the video maker. The object of the course is therefore the identity of the sound in its relationship with the assembled image, starting from the cinema and more generally in the narrative audiovision.

The sound of cinema tends to reproduce the typical characteristics of human acoustic perception and of the listening dimension. It reproduces them but does not duplicate them as for cloning.

In which way does it reproduce them? Through a selection and simplification process that reduces the three (plus one) categories for reasons that are both conceptual and practical: dialogue-effects-music (plus the relational dimension of silence).

With the aid of the audiovisual analysis of some exemplary cinematographic sequences, the students approach the comprehension of the characteristics and specific values ​​of the sound when it is in a structural relationship with the assembled image, in the narrative reconstruction of a reality, of a " world". The continuous and discreet of the sound chain, the off-field mechanism, the double vectoriality of sound / image, the synchronous and the desynchronization, the extensibility of the sound field, the frequencies involved in the construction process of a soundtrack: these are some of the focal points dealt with in a course that aims to stabilize in the participants a basic awareness about the composition of the sound universe that accompanies the "visible" of the cinema.

The lessons will take place in a practical way and with the use of the appropriate technical equipment.

"Sound is one of the most precious and least known tools available to the video maker. The object of the course is therefore the identity of the sound in its relationship with the assembled image, starting from the cinema and more generally in the narrative audiovision. "
