When you think of audio production careers, what comes to mind? Working behind a digital control console and mixing sounds for the next big television show or film? While TV and film are some of the most common career paths for students with a certificate in audio production, there are so many other industries that will open their doors to a graduate with an audio production certificate. Here are a few creative career paths that you can take as a new audio production professional:
The need for a strong audio component in storytelling goes far beyond live action blockbusters. When you work as an animation audio producer, you will be at greater liberty than ever to put your sound design skills to good use. Even if you are not in the position to create the original sounds that viewers will hear, you will play a key position in making sure that the intended viewing experience is carried out. A career in audio animation is all about playing up the ongoing action, and ensuring that sounds are well-timed, lively, and engaging.
If you’re an arts enthusiast, a position managing audio production at a theater company may be the perfect fit. As an artist yourself, you will have a unique opportunity to create the sounds that will be used in the real-time action of a live production. Audio production for theater is itself an art—creating sounds for the drama, comedy, or adventure taking place in front of a real audience adds an extra layer of emotion and creativity that’s essential to any theatrical production.
Can’t put down the controller? Pining for the latest installment of your favorite videogame series? If so, it is worthwhile to take a look at a role as a videogame audio producer. You’ll have the opportunity to combine your passion for the latest and greatest games with the skills to bring on-screen action up a notch with enhanced audio design. Videogames give audio producers an opportunity to create sounds for an interactive virtual world. These sounds help the user immerse themselves in the excitement of an alternate reality.
Looking for a career in a timeless industry? Being an audio producer in the radio industry is the ultimate way to scale your talent. With thousands of different stations and music genres, there’s no doubt that you’ll find one to match your tastes. You will have the opportunity to work with audio that is both prerecorded and live, often working to mesh them together in a seamless way that will leave listeners coming back for more.

When learning to create videogames, students often determine the purpose and storyline of their games based on a simple set of factors- the kinds of games that they enjoy playing themselves.

To create better games that are both enjoyable for the creator to make and their players to explore, here are three general rules that are helpful to remember in the videogame design process.
