Developing Diverse Screen Sound Practitioner Futures

Project Name: Developing Diverse Screen Sound Practitioner Futures

Funding Recipient: Alicia Butterworth

Activity: With Griffith University and SAE Brisbane’s support, sound recordist Alicia Butterworth and sound designer Tfer Newsome will oversee a series of training workshops for under-represented emerging female and non-binary screen-sound professionals to teach critical skills and encourage career development and longevity. The workshops will focus on sound for drama, location sound for documentary and unscripted TV, future sound, post-sound, and the sound business. Each workshop will be delivered to 15-20 attendees to allow hands-on access to equipment. In conjunction with these workshops, a kit of equipment will be made available to emerging sound practitioners on low to no budget projects so that they can access industry-standard equipment as they learn the craft and establish their networks.

Listen to Alicia Butterworth discuss the project with Annie McLoughlin for 3CR’s Showreel program here.
