String and Tins are inviting applications for our inaugural No Fixed Mix programme, aimed at encouraging more women to consider a career in Sound Design.

Workshops will take place on weekday evenings at our studio facility in Fitzrovia. Details will be communicated to successful applicants during the week commencing 25th March 2019.

We aim to give attendees:

  • A snapshot of the audio-post industry (from our perspective)
  • Tips / tools / resources to get started
  • Follow up with a piece of work to help put a showreel together

Thanks to the generous support from our friends at Avid and HHB, participants will be provided with a free 12 month’s subscription licence to Pro Tools, the industry standard DAW worth £299, so that they can continue to develop their audio post-production skills.

To apply for a place please email [email protected] with a single page CV and a link to a single piece of sound work that you have created. This could be audio only sound design, a collage of interesting field recordings, sound design to picture, or a piece of music with unusual instrumentation. Links must be Soundcloud, YouTube or Vimeo. Submissions should be between 10 seconds and 1 min in duration. Applicants must be 18 years or older, as of 25th March 2019.

Closing date for applications is midnight Sunday 24th March 2019. We will reply to all applicants the week thereafter. Any questions? Feel free to email [email protected] and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
