MultiChoice to host Dolby webinars for creatives   

The Multichoice Talent Factory is giving content creators an opportunity to learn how to use Dolby technology in storytelling, all via webinars.



The MultiChoice Talent Factory (MTF), in partnership with the Dolby Institute, is launching an online learning channel called Dolby Audio Webinars. The series of webinars will cover a range of topics, such as Sound for Video Editors, Setting-Up a 5.1 Session & Mix Environment, Dolby Atmos Content Creation and other sound engineering topics.  

The first of eight webinars will be live every Thursday, starting tomorrow, 16 April 2020, from 13:00 to 14:00 CAT. The first session focuses on Script Analysis & Planning for 5.1 Productions, and is one of four webinars geared towards content creators, while the other four webinars are more technical and tailormade for mix engineers, video editors and system integrators.   

In filmmaking, sound is often overlooked, yet it’s an important component of filmmaking. The Dolby Institute develops educational programming to help creatives advance in the art of storytelling, whether they’re making a film, mixing the sound for a sporting event, or designing next-generation music experiences.  

As the leading video entertainment provider on the continent, says MultiChoice, it recognises the importance of understanding sound in order to tell authentic African stories. This partnership with Dolby will benefit storytellers across the continent and support the growth of the homegrown entertainment industry.
