Sound is an invisible, yet essential, craft—and every year a small number of students discover a love for this crucial dimension of film art. SVA Film offers an individually designed concentration built according to your interests on the foundation of our sound curriculum.
SVA is fortunate to have among its sound faculty Chris Newman, a three-time Academy Award winner for sound, to both teach and advise students in and beyond the basics—production and postproduction sound recording, mixing, booming, sound effects and scoring.
SVA’s state-of-the-art sound equipment includes everything you need to learn your craft for both practice and filming. Among the choices are multitrack sound design recorders and mixers, professional microphones from Sennheiser, Neumann, and others, as well as radio microphones from Lectro and Sennheiser.
A comprehensive Pro Tools, Foley, ADR and mixing facility is available for all sound postproduction needs.
