Students are invited to learn with professional sound designers for a behind-the-scenes experience of the award winning Hardball series.
Join us as we answer these questions and much more in video sequences together with specifically packaged, structured teacher learning resources to draw from.
- Why is sound so important in television and film?
- How does sound help bring audiences into a screen world?
- What is the workflow followed by screen professionals when creating, capturing and editing sound for a production?
Suitable for Years 4-6, this learning resource shares interviews with creatives and behind-the-scenes footage exploring sound design from the award-winning children’s television program, Hardball. It is structured so that students can work through the resource independently or as a class. By working through the short learning tasks and video interviews, students discover the importance of sound design first-hand from Hardball sound designers Serge Lacroix and Liam Whiting. After learning all about sound design, students can download our Foley Kit and create their own soundscape.
