can enhance our pleasure of a computer game and help bridge the ever decreasing gap between games and more traditional
forms of storytelling such as films.
You have been commissioned by Rockstar North to produce the audio soundtracks for cut sequences that will be used in a

Modern computer games such as Grand Theft Auto 5feature complex narrative cut sequences which help to drive the game’s
story forward. As the quality of computer games have advanced, so too has the quality and complexity of the audio produced for
these products.
This assignment will introduce you to audio production and post-production technologies so that you will be able to produce
technically competent and professional sound assetsthat will used in the planned GTA 5 mission expansion pack.
You will produce voice recordings and sound assets using portable audio recording hardware, studio based production hardware
and post-production computer software using VST instruments and effects. This newly acquired audio production knowledge will
equip you with the skills needed to produce a two minute soundtrack for a new GTA 5computer game cut sequence.
This assignment will do the following:
Introduce portable audio field recording technology.
Require the use audio field recording techniques to capture sound assets.
Introduce studio dialogue recording technologies and techniques.
