I'm an aspiring sound designer who is going to school in a tiny Southern town. We don't have a film program, and while the music department has some music technology, there are only four courses. I can sound design for theater and work at the radio station to learn about audio engineering, but that's about it, as far as I can tell. If I wanted to intern, I'd have to wait until the summer, when I can drive to a major city.
So, besides networking online and scouring forums, how am I supposed to make good face-to-face contacts in the film and gaming industries? Should I transfer to a less isolated school? Thanks for reading!
