With a strong mobile entertainment and gaming industry in North America, there’s an increased demand for sound designers. Modelling standard industry workflows, George Brown College’s Sound Design & Production program focuses on creating sound for film, television and games. Students work in collaboration with other media programs to create sound for shorts, animations and games.

Whether recording audio in-studio or in the field, as a Sound Design & Production student, you will learn to master technical skills and refine your artistic style.

Without a sound designer to create the perfect soundscape, the film, television and game industries are incomplete. Applying the technical and conceptual aspects of sound, you will become audio storytellers working alongside visual production artists to re-create the real world in a digital context.

You will learn how to create sound from scratch through capturing real-environment sounds as well as Foley creation. At George Brown’s studio production facilities, you will learn mixing, video game audio, dialogue editing and ADR, sound design and recording to re-create audio landscapes.

What You’ll Learn

  • Create sound files for live action dramatic short films, animated short films, video games and interactive media.
  • Produce a score recording session and arrange a provided composition to fit a given visual sequence.
  • Collaborate with key principals and production personnel in the creation of complementary sound design for a storytelling environment.
  • Design sound for the appropriate medium and genres considering the cultural and social significance of those designs.
  • Plan audio design and production projects that reflect scope and vision for pre-production, production and postproduction.
  • Apply entrepreneurial strategies relevant within the field of sound design to develop a viable business plan for freelance sound design professionals.
  • Assess existing and emerging market trends in sound design products and services for production project purposes.
  • Adhere to legal principles, government legislation and regulations, copyright and contract requirements and professional and industry codes of conduct.

This program is all hands-on all the time. The lessons and strategies I learned in the classroom helped prepare me for the exact challenges I faced in the classroom. Instructors were dedicated and empathetic. Best of all, there were more available field placements than there were students. Early childhood educators can't go wrong at George Brown in my opinion.

I had to adapt during a hard year of learning online at GB. I'm better at studying and learning and I had to practice discipline but I got a lot of support this year from teachers and support staff. The staff were doing their best. I just want to say thanks for that as an international student in Brazil. I'm hoping to see everyone in downtown Toronto next year!
