**17:9 is not a standard screening aspect ratio, however we have the ability to project 17:9 in the Bright Family Screening Room. This may not be the case elsewhere, if you intend to submit your work to festivals.

Audio Mixing

 

BFA students are expected to coordinate with their audio mixer on their own. The Post team is not responsible for assigning a mixer to your project, however we are happy to help with the process by forwarding your request to the audio faculty. From there, it is your responsibility to follow up with students and faculty. Please contact the post team (emails listed below) with any requests regarding audio mixers.

If you plan on mixing in 5.1 surround, please also deliver six corresponding mono audio tracks labeled C, L, Ls, R, Rs, and LFE. Contact the post team if you have questions about this.

Delivery

 

We accept files in person or over Google Drive. A physical hard drive can be brought to to any of the post managers, or you may upload and share the file with us using your Emerson Google Drive account.

If we do not have your submission by the specified due date, you will not be guaranteed a DCP or QC.
