Students Mix Audio & Video in Studio Club

  • Recording Studio
  • Recording Studio

By Hannah Kelly, Music Specialist

One of our most popular clubs this term is Studio, which teaches students how to record and edit sound in our in-house recording studio through a range of activities. Projects include editing celebrity interviews using audio effects and adding Foley effects to famous film scenes using everyday objects. Some participants even had the opportunity to record and edit an interview with Andrew Roitstein, our mentor for The Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Programme, as well as portions of the first-ever music recital at our new campus.

Through these activities, students have grown increasingly comfortable with using audio software. So, we’re expanding their skills by starting work on a stop-motion project, which will lead us through the end of Autumn Term. Stop motion is a cinematographic technique in which the camera is repeatedly stopped and started to give the impression of movement. To start the project, students researched the various types of stop motion and planned exactly what they need to bring their concept to life. Now, students are in the process of executing their plans. Their work thus far has been incredibly inspiring and creative. Once they finish creating their videos, the students will add music, sound effects, Foley and dialogue using the skills that they’ve learned through previous club projects.

The club has been great fun, and we look forward to seeing the students’ final stop-motion products!
