Students are introduced to a combination of radio and audio production skills over this course. What will be achieved is exposure to fundamental skills required for broadcast radio including producing, on air presentation and how to use effectively the range of facilities contained within the broadcast software. Voice production and the use of pro-tools becomes central to this course. Copywriting and effective delivery of radio commercials and community service announcements is a key element. Through audio production, students will explore enhancement to video production audio tracks and the skills required to re voice for narrative work. This course builds on the earlier course to further build theoretical and practical knowledge.
Media producers must have the ability to pursue projects from conception to completion. This course requires students to produce a set of significant and innovative radio projects which will involve adherence to demanding production schedules. The completed works are intended for broadcasting. All students are expected to contribute to regular "live" broadcasts as scheduled throughout the teaching period. In addition students will use audio production to enhance video production.
On successful completion of this course students should be able to:
- demonstrated a high level of conceptual and production skills in audio communication
- the ability to conceive, plan and execute a radio project to professional broadcast standards and to a set deadline
- identify and apply several radio production elements, and their contribution to the final result, through the medium of their major completed project/s
- use pro-tools in a video/audio mode and demonstrate necessary industry professional communication skills for the purpose of enhancing or re-voicing video production.
