Updates Sound and Music Class for June 2015

Due to the low number of applicants and work related assignments, we had no option but to reschedule the sound and music in film class at a later date which will be communicated. We continue to urge all the practitioners in the filmmaking industry  to give more emphasis in sound and music in their production either in short film documentaries, send-off parties, weddings, news reporting etc.

Customized Lessons Ongoing

We have a well outlined curriculum for the master classes even though we are very flexible to accommodate participants’ recommendation that we can deliver on. Currently we are running a customized training for individuals’ from15th to 26th June 2015. In the customized training model, the participant has 80% to select what they need to be trained on that is within our capacity while we also provide 20% insight on what is entailed on the options they have selected upon.

A case in point we have Mr. Alex Mkemwa from Iringa, Tanzania where he works for  Furaha radio station as a radio presenter. Mr. Alex has subscribed for 2 weeks training that entails sound and technical editing starting 16th June on 26th June 2015.
