Post & Game Audio Production Diploma

12 MONTH – FULL-TIME – VANCOUVER, BC

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Post Production & Game Audio Program focuses on the technology and techniques used in the creation and implementation of audio for film, television and gaming. The five core components included are: dialogue, sound design, audio capturing, integration and mixing. The topic of dialogue covers location recording, automatic dialogue replacement and standard editing practices. In the sound design and audio capturing topics, you will learn how a detailed and immersive auditory environment can enhance a visual experience, and through lab work and mentorship will gain experience in recording, signal processing and synthesis. You will be expected to create compelling soundtracks for film, TV and video games demonstrating their understanding of the concepts presented, using industry standard tools such as Pro Tools and WWise.

Upon successful completion of the Post Production & Game Audio Program you will be able to create, manage and implement all the audio elements for film, television or gaming. Grads will be confident in designing and integrating sounds that react to user input and will leave Nimbus with a valuable portfolio including live action and animation shorts, as well as a working video game demo.
