Foley: The Art of Creating Custom Sounds for Films w/ Emma Kramer-Rodger
Saturday September 15th, 12pm-4pm
AKA/PAVED Arts Event Space

Every wonder where all the sounds in your favorite film or television show come from? A lot of them are custom made by Foley or sound effects artists, and used to enhance the soundscape of the final product. Foley is the art of recording everyday noises and adding them to media to enhance the realism, or manipulating these sounds to create something bigger than life (think explosions, mythical creatures, etc.) Join us for an afternoon workshop that covers the history of Foley, and teaches you how to record, create and customize your own sounds to use in your very own films.

Emma Kramer-Rodger is a musician, composer and audio engineer based in Regina, Saskatchewan. She is passionate about working in a variety of entertainment mediums including film, video games and virtual reality.
Emma has completed a Bachelor’s degree in music performance from the University of Regina and a certificate in Audio Production for Film and Video Games from Berklee College of Music Online. Currently working full time at Talking Dog Studios, she has worked on a number of independent video games and larger film productions, including Distorted and The Humanity Bureau.
In addition to creating unique sound effects and Foley, Emma also has a passion for music composition and creating virtual reality spatial audio.

Crash Course on Stop Motion Animation w/ Wendy Sharpe
Tues. February 19th, 7-10pm
AKA/PAVED Arts Event Space

Are you interested in learning how to make stop motion animations but don’t know where to start? In this workshop, you’ll learn the skills to craft your own stop motion animations and then will be provided an opportunity to make your own 30-second video. Come with an idea (and props/characters) or none at all. A variety of materials and figures will be provided for you to use in your videos.

No experience in filmmaking or art is necessary.

Wendy Sharpe is a painter, fibre artist, and filmmaker living and working in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Out of sheer desperation of a looming deadline, Wendy taught herself how to make stop motion films. Wendy’s original films were captured via Super 8 and she has recently moved to digital filmmaking.

Ever wondered how to get the most out of PAVED’s large format digital printer? Join artist Laura St.Pierre for some tips on printing resolution, colour adjustment, sharpening, and substrates (papers). After a short demonstration, each participant will have the opportunity to print their own file on a number of different substrates, including some that PAVED does not normally stock.

Each participant is asked to bring one image on a usb to run printing tests. Four 8×10″ tests are included in the price of the workshop.

Laura St.Pierre’s installations public works and photographs have been exhibited throughout Canada and abroad. St.Pierre earned undergraduate degrees at UBC and the U of A, and completed a Master of Fine Arts degree at Concordia University in Montreal. She has received arts grants from the Conseil des Arts et Lettres du Quebec, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, the Saskatchewan Arts Board, and the Canada Council.
