I am Sid and I hail from India. I've been working in the bollywood film industry for a while now and want to now move out. I have about 12-15 major motion pictures under my belt for which I served as the sound editor. I was previously all throughout high school and college involved in composing electronic music and was also the boom man for a few short films. I have a bachelors in computer application and all that I've learned about sound until now has been self learning and observation. I have been working professionally for quite some time and want to learn some more advanced techniques and have a formal education in my discipline. The industry here in India is'nt so challenging that I might get to hone my skills to a great extent. I want a more global understanding of how film sound editors deal with sound.
I was considering to undertake an MA in sound design. From all the research I've done, most courses seem to be in UK. I do not want an MSc as I want to explore the storytelling and emotional side of sound and not the technical aspects as much. Also I've seen Sound Arts or sonic arts courses but they are also more focussed on synthesis of sound on its own rather than its relationship with film so thats also something I'm not considering.
Are there any credible MA programs that you people can help me with?
I have right now applied for the Uni of Westminster, Uni Bournemouth and NFTS in the UK. I dont know about VFS and how beneficial it'll be in teaching me things to further my skillset. What other options do I have??
