This MasterClass is aimed at sound designers, sound engineers, musicians, composer, directors and producers and offers the unique opportunity to gain practical experience and personal feedback on one’s own work in close collaboration with one of the most renowned sound designers of our time. In the run-up to the workshop, the participants will receive a homework assignment to create their own sound design. The results will be part of the discussions on the last day of the workshop.
Randy Thom is planning to make some “on location” recordings, so we ask all participants to bring their own audio recording equipment. There is a ProTools workstation for each participant, own laptops/MacBook can be brought along.
