We also hold weekly sound for video sessions online where we discuss your questions so you won't get stuck out on your own.

This is an online video course that will teach you what you need to know to fine-tune your dialogue sound.

What if I have questions or need help?

Each week we hold an online sound for video session where you can ask questions or discuss your projects with Curtis and your fellow students. The sessions will rotate days and times to accommodate various time zones or you can always submit your questions ahead of time and watch the session later.

What Students Say

Curtis, I just have to thank you for these fantastic videos. They're are always so jam-packed with information, with great delivery. Even topics I thought I had nailed down, you've provided bits of bonus info to go along with them. There's never enough preparation one can do before a production day so I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate these. I'm sure I'll have a question for you at some point but until then, I'll be watching! All the best.
