What does the program offer?
Engineers from around the world participate in our program to benefit from mentoring with staff engineers and technologists; and classes with audio staff and internationally-renowned visiting guest faculty. Participants work on post production projects initiated by all artistic programs at The Banff Centre including audio enhancement and mixing of lectures and presentations by visiting artists for online dissemination. Engineers will also have the opportunity to work on projects from Marketing & Communications and the Peter Lougheed Leadership Institute. As part of the practicum, engineers will work with staff or faculty producers and engineers on commercial post production projects; interact with other international audio engineers as well as artists in other disciplines; and have full access to professionally-equipped studio spaces.
You’ll be able to demonstrate a combination of formal training and/or professional experience or aptitude in audio post production engineering. Working knowledge of ProTools is essential; basic to intermediate knowledge of Media Composer, Final Cut, Pyramix, Soundminer, and File Maker Pro is desirable. You’ll possess a practical understanding of file creation and management and be able to manage resources and produce to schedule. The successful applicant will have strong multitasking, diplomacy and time management skills.
Please note that in addition to this late winter opportunity, there will be summer (May 2016 – September 2016) audio practicum programs that will be open to applications shortly.
