Experts in the film profession agree – great movie scores and sound effects are some of the most subtle, but vital aspects of a movie’s success. These audio elements are the very passion which brought Anthony Neer to American National University’s Lexington Campus, where he has enrolled in the multimedia production program.
“I’ve had a passion for the audio side of film my entire life. I don’t watch movies; I study them - their music, sound quality, sound effects,” he explained. “Movie goers may be vaguely aware of these vital elements, but they are essential to a film’s success. Your audience has to be captivated, moved, and be emotionally involved. All emotions come from the music, sound, and sound effects. This is the industry segment I love.”
Through the multimedia production program at the Lexington Campus, Anthony has found a way to turn his lifelong passion into a career. “I attended two other colleges, but it just didn’t work out,” Anthony explained of his path to ANU. “After some research, I found American National’s multimedia production program, and I knew I had found what I needed.”
After earning his degree next year, Anthony plans to return to ANU for his degree in business management. “I want my open my own audio studio, similar to ‘Industrial Light and Magic’ in Hollywood,” he happily stated. “I want to produce industry-leading music, sound effects, and audio for the film industry!”
