Hands on Summer Intensive Workshop at SF STATE!

In conjunction with SFSU we are proud to offer our annual summer hands on game audio workshop. This workshop is the perfect companion to the 101 online course and centers around working hands on with our Unity Game Lessons. In this workshop, you will build upon your theoretical knowledge of game sound to produce and implement audio directly into 2d, 3d and VR games.

All of our courses, workshops, and game lessons are designed to break down and expose the essentials of game audio workflow. Maybe you’re  a game designer who needs to understand more about how sound works, or a composer or sound designer in the Film/TV industry with a desire to break into the game business, perhaps you’re already a professional audio instructor or teacher who has been tasked with creating a course in game audio at your school or institution. From the beginning designer just starting out, to seasoned veterans, don’t worry, these courses have you covered!

Game Audio Institute is now offering a Canvas based online course, with more to follow! This course is available for Students, Teachers and Schools – anyone anywhere interested in furthering their knowledge concerning the complex and dynamic world of sounds for games and interactive environments.
