Watkins Adds New Film Technology


Watkins College of Art, Design & Film has added VoiceQ, an advanced ADR and dubbing cueing system, to its film curriculum. Watkins reports being the first school in the country to use this innovative post-production software in a classroom setting.

Developed by New Zealand-based Kiwa Digital Ltd, VoiceQ speeds up the ADR (additional dialogue recorded) and replacement process in the post-production stage of film and television production.

This follows another recent Watkins milestone: the announcement of college’s first graduate film program, the Masters of Fine Art in Film Production, now accepting applications for fall 2016.
