Stage II – Interdisciplinary Projects, Media and Cultural Studies
In Stage II you will be working in simulated project groups where you are working towards large scale deliverables each trimester. Within Stage II we will not only get you to apply your Stage I skills in a deeper context, but we will also help you work within the contemporary creative media workforce.
In Stage II we show you how your work contributes to and interacts with broader culture and media practice. This knowledge will enable you to work with a variety of other disciplines and artists and expand your potential on the global stage.
You will complete a number of real-world projects with students not only in your own discipline, but in all other SAE disciplines.
In Stage II, you will be given the opportunity to work as project specialists within the following areas. The types of projects and project roles you choose to undertake will determine what area of specialisation you fall within. Stage II has three studio modules with projects based on the following areas;
1. Studio Production
Students wishing to extend their studio production skills will work on large-scale commercial audio desks in both analogue and digital format from both engineering and producing roles, acoustics, outboard effects and microphones.
Develop a complete understanding of the sound aesthetic from a technological level to a production level and use your skills to mix and master tracks from recording through to the final product.
In addition to large consoles, you will use a variety of equipment found in current industry practice, including in-the-box systems and cutting edge hardware and software controller technology to achieve the same outcomes expected in traditional studio environments.
2. Post Production
Students with a post production focus will incorporate audio with the moving image. This includes audio for film, games and animation with creation and manipulation of the entire sonic environment of multimedia.
Explore location audio using various microphone techniques for ambient sounds as well as dialogue and sound effects. Develop skills in automatic dialogue replacement (ADR), Foley and sound design.
Students will look deeper into the aesthetics of literal and nonliteral sound and the techniques of mixing for immersive sound formats and environments.
Stage III is the final part of your studies. Here you will undertake an interdisciplinary project of your choice to be the final and most ambitious portfolio project that you will undertake.
You will also finalise your studies by undertaking an elective module and completing a compulsory internship.
By the time you graduate, you will have; a professional online presence that you will have begun building at the start of the program, a wide range of interdisciplinary projects present in your portfolio, and a deeper understanding of the creative media fields and real-world experience.
Upon graduating, you will have a sound knowledge of audio for many applications in the music and creative media industries. You will be proficient in the use of a variety of industry standard hardware and software, allowing you to use your skillset on large or small scale projects across many facets of the audio industry.
