Verso University, Video Sound,Post-Production


This Verso University workshop is for budding filmmakers and hobbyists trying to get their sound to the next level, using industry standard Adobe Audition software.

The class will meet for four sessions, from 9:30-10:30 am on Thursdays, February 29 through March 21. The course will meet in the Library's McCall Conference Room, on the upper level.

The workshop will cover all aspects of audio post-production: from prep, dialogue editorial, sound design, music selection and editing, and mixing. Using a short 1- to 5-minute video of yours, that you will bring to class, you will gain the introductory skills necessary to optimize your sound and create a video fully mixed and ready to upload to YouTube or share elsewhere with family, friends, or customers.

Prior experience in Adobe Audition or Premiere recommended. Participants are to bring a video of their own to work on. Participants may consider enrolling in Verso University’s Introduction to Video Editing, offered January 16 through February 6.

Note: Class size is limited. Registration fee of $25 and registration is for all sessions. The Westport Library wants to ensure that all interested students are able to participate in Verso University courses. If the registration fee is a barrier to entry for you, please contact [email protected].

Requirements: a laptop with an up-to-date version of Adobe Audition.
