  • (1888PressRelease) March 16, 2010 - Los Angeles, CA - Pinnacle College's "What is Game Audio" Workshop, overviews the nature of Game Audio and its evolution within the Video Games Industry. The workshop will demonstrate the skill sets needed to complete the various tasks in Game Audio creation through a detailed look at the tools of the trade. Participants will have a chance to take a closer look at the type of jobs associated with Game Audio, to see and hear how different tools come into play, to understand how certain audio is produced, and to create audio content.

    Pinnacle College has unique insights on Game Audio with their Game Audio and Interactive Media (GAIM) Program. Pinnacle College is the first to offer this one-of-a-kind Game Audio Education, and offers graduates of the Program an Occupational Associates Degree. The benefit to graduates of the GAIM Program are many, but the Degree they earn separates and elevates them from the pool of individuals seeking entrance into this growing field.

    The worldwide gaming market is projected to be worth $48.9BB by 2011, with a compound annual growth rate of 9.1%. Thus this segment of audio careers is expected to have pressures to fill entry level positions with the advancement of existing professionals. A void is being created where it will become increasingly difficult to recruit qualified persons into the field. Programs such as Pinnacle College's Audio for Interactive Media mean that employers will spend considerably less time training and recruiting and more time in production by hiring graduates from the GAIM Program.

    The Workshop is Divided into 5 Parts-

    Part 1:
    - Intro: what is Game Audio and what makes it different?
    - Survey of the Interactive Entertainment industry
    - Critical listening 101

    Part 2:
    - The tools
    - The tasks/jobs
    - Usage of Hardware and Software
    - Adaptive music and current trends

    Part 3:
    - Asset creation
    - Producing sounds by category (workshop)
    - Middleware

    Part 4:
    - Audio implementation workshop

    Part 5:
    - Critical Listening revisited
    - The GAIM program
    - Q&A
