    Troubleshooting Havoc 

    Yesterday was a very busy day. And not in the good sense. A great portion of our day was spent troubleshooting and pulling our hair out of frustration. This is what happens when you work in an industry that revolves around technology. Usually there is minor troubleshooting to do every day, but today was just wild. The session was not reading the volume or plug-in automation which basically means that all the work that was done on the dialogue audio (to make it sound better and to make it fit in better with the rest of the elements – music, effects, etc) was not coming through – DISASTER.

    The other intern, Nick, had some suggestions which our boss tried and things were better, but still not quite right. Richard (my supervisor and boss) chose to post something on a known audio forum with the hopes that an audio connoisseur would come to the rescue – no such luck. It was time for lunch.

    Moving Sounds for Moving Pictures 

    Although theĀ  audio technology program at American is a very close-knit department, we are all very unique students striving for different goals and often in very different directions. A new state-of-the-art studio was finished this past spring semester, opening a whole new window of opportunity for us… and with that, internships!

    A huge part of our program is focused on music and the recording arts, but a small group of the program’s students, including myself, are very invested in what comes after the recording is done – something we like to call “post production”. We are interested in the world of sound design – creating sound for film and television. This brought me to Takoma Media, in Silver Spring, where I am now one of three interns. So far, it has been an experience that has taught me much more than I expected. It has introduced me into the world of post-production audio, without having to serve coffee, file paperwork, or answer any calls. At Takoma Media, I’m getting the hands-on experience that will hopefully open the doors to many job opportunities in the future.
