As the lockdown days add up to weeks, digital content is in demand. The MultiChoice Talent Factory (MTF) in partnership with the Dolby Institute has launched an online learning channel, to ensure that Content Creators learn the magic of using DOLBY technology in storytelling.
The series of eight webinars cover a range of topics such Sound for video editors, Setting-Up a 5.1 Session & Mix environment, Dolby Atmos Content Creation and other sound engineering topics. The first session which kicked off on 16 April 2020 focused on Script Analysis and Planning for 5.1 Productions and is one of four webinars geared towards all content creators. The other four webinars are more technical and are tailor-made for mix engineers, video editors and system integrators.
In filmmaking, the sound is often overlooked yet it’s an important component of filmmaking. The Dolby Institute develops educational programming to help creatives advance in the art of storytelling, whether they’re making a film, mixing the sound for a sporting event, or designing the next-generation music experiences.
As the leading video entertainment provider on the continent, MultiChoice recognizes the importance of understanding sound in order to tell authentic African stories. The partnership with Dolby is set to benefit storytellers across the continent and support the growth of the homegrown entertainment industry.
The webinars will go live every Thursday, starting on the 16th April 2020 from 13:00 – 14:00 and will run until June.
If you wish to attend any of the webinars register on the MultiChoice Talent Factory portal and be part of the creatives who are expanding their network and showcasing their talent. The portal is a pan-African, film and television digital marketplace for information about all aspects of this creative industry.
