”Alex drew on his considerable experience of real world projects to illustrate points that arose. He pushed me hard and encouraged me to excel, while maintaining a sense of fun throughout. I would give these lessons the highest possible recommendation to anybody who is thinking of embarking on a career in audio post.”


Brian Lane Sound Designer & Composer


”Completing this course has provided me with an in-depth understanding of the audio post process, and the different roles within the industry. The instruction is clear and engaging. Building upon the techniques I have learned on this course, I feel confident moving forward into the next stage of my career.”


Jack Hughes Sound Designer & Composer


”When I first started, it

was a new world that I hadn't breached into much at all. I'd just messed around with synthesizers. Now I feel like I could pretty confidently go out and work with clients, take my field recorder with me everywhere, and create a

whole new universe between two speakers.
