Los Angeles,16 Sept 2015 -- The Cinema Audio Society announced today that it is accepting applications for the 2nd Annual CAS Student Recognition Award. The award comes with a $2,500 grant and is intended to encourage students’ interest in production or post-production sound mixing, and to recognize individual students with exceptional demonstrated passion for the field.
IATSE Local 695 has graciously offered to share their quarterly publication with our students and members of the sound community. Local 695 is the labor union representing production and post-production sound recording for the Hollywood industry,
UFVA president Norman Hollyn recently announced that every UFVA member and our students, can now post free casting call notices for talent and some crew. This should make it easier to find cast in many areas of the country.
Hello Fellow Media Faculty Member,
I'm an Assistant Professor at DePaul University. I recently created a private Facebook Group Page as a place where media instructors from around the world could network with each other.
It is a place for film, screenwriting, and other media instructors and professors to share ideas, materials, insights, resources, and more. Also, it would be a great place to brainstorm, trouble shoot, and ask questions and advice of each other. We are in such a unique and ever changing field, and I know personally I'd love to hear how other folks deal with challenges, celebrate victories, and balance the line between educator and artist.
So... WELCOME! (And please feel free to post items under the FILES tab; I will be posting some of my favorite assignments there to share!)
Hope to see you in the group! Please feel free to share with all the other media educators you know.
