Week Six

Audio Post Production Course Curriculum

Our Advanced Diploma in Audio Post Production for Film and TV is a 5-month long part-time course, taught across a 2-day per week timetable with further study and practical time expected on top. The course follows the workflow of a real industry project, from recording through to editing and mixing a variety of material.

The curriculum is made up of 14 weeks of teaching and is structured so that each week you’ll focus on a specific topic within audio post-production with each topic building on the knowledge and skills from the previous week.  Much of your time will be spent in our dedicated post-production studio alongside classes in our new teaching spaces at Angel.

Each subject addresses the practical and technical skills you need to develop a rounded knowledge and skill set within each area. The course curriculum is structured as follows:

Week Six

Dialogue Editing

Week six is completely dedicated to dialogue editing, starting with an overview of what a dialogue editors role is. We then add the specifics of each element of a typical workflow for a scripted drama. We cover the first steps of dialogue editing, cleaning the AAF/OMF, conforming and then organising the clips before moving onto editing. We address noise reduction, time and phase alignment and ADR.

The curriculum is fantastic, extremely comprehensive, contemporary and relevant to today’s industry.

I had an incredible experience. The staff have so much to offer and cover so many different areas of music.

Luke Glazewski, Graduate 2019

The course taught me what it means to be a producer and engineer in the industry, I learned things I couldn’t have learned anywhere else.

Marta Di Nozzi, Graduate 2019

It’s a unique experience in so many ways, the location, the calibre of guest lecturers and access to Abbey Road Studios for classes is pretty amazing. There aren't many places you get to record a full orchestra!
