Protege, an online educator founded by soundtrack experts, has launched with a one-year music production course designed to help students build stable careers in the film and television industry, from home.
The course, which will accommodate 100 students, will be led by industry veterans Richard Schrieber and Mammoth Audio‘s Vikram Gudi. The pair share a decade-long relationship and over 100 credits across major film, television, video game titles, as well as trailers for Blade Runner 2049, Avengers: Endgame, and A Quiet Place.
With this course, the aim is not only to equip students with practical production skills but to also develop their mindsets for approaching real-world situations. They will also come away with a portfolio of at least 30 pitch-ready tracks, and will be invited to join the Protege and Elephant Music Creative Family.
“The problem with most music schools is that they don’t teach anything about mindset. There is often a distinct or complete lack of real-world projects, with no direct or tangible professional opportunities to match an individual’s initial investment. We wanted to make a difference to people’s careers by pooling our knowledge to help those wanting to crack the music industry.” said Schrieber on PRS For Music.
As such, the course is tailored to meet the ever-changing demands of the entertainment industry, and will be consistently updated to ensure students learn skills relevant to gaining film and TV placements.
On top of this, the duo is also offering students the opportunity to make use of their industry network in order to gain more placements.
Each module within the course will be 5 weeks long, the first school year of Protege’s course begins in September 2020.
