How Does It Work?
This is both an asynchronous and synchronous program. You do not need to sign on at a certain time each day for class. You will complete the classes and modules at times convenient to you and your schedule. The 9 provided recording sessions are scheduled and distributed throughout the 8 month course.
Module content, lectures and assignments will be delivered via our exclusive online platform, which we have coded and created specifically for this program. Students will login with their unique login details for access to the program content.
Each student will have one-on-one time with our online faculty, as well as one-on-one time on their orchestrations prior to each recording session with Norman Ludwin, our orchestration lecturer and Michael Giacchino's orchestrator. Each student will also have regularly scheduled review sessions of their compositions to picture with various members of the faculty.
All recording sessions will be held in
Doli Media Studio and
Sofia Session Studio, conducted and produced by the faculty at the Film Scoring Academy of Europe, and recorded by the
European Recording Orchestra (ERO).
Students do not need to attend the recording sessions in person. Instead, students will be able to login to the HD video and audio streams to produce their recording sessions alongside our team of orchestrators and score supervisors.
The online Graduate Diploma in Film and Game Scoring includes lectures from some of our guest artists: Conrad Pope, Christopher Young, Garry Schyman and Richard Bellis.
