Sound Designers are in charge of getting all sound effects needed for production, whether recorded or live. This person also needs to set up the sound playback equipment and ensure that the board operator has received sufficient training.
If you're thinking of starting a career in this field, you need to be very imaginative since a production's sound design is an artistic component. To design sound effects rather than simply re-record them, you need to first study the script and meet with the Director to discuss the best sound attributes for the show. After this, you can start putting together the cue list.
As someone aspiring to be a sound designer, you must be an outstanding problem-solver. Not just this, you should be able to think quickly and clearly when anything goes wrong. Irrespective of educational background, what is essential for sound designers is a broad understanding of audio editing, microphone selection and placement, electrical engineering, and acoustics. You'll earn up to $52,966 yearly as a sound designer.
