The Watch That Sound audio and music workshops are taking place from at Cinekid, the annual Dutch festival for film, television and new media for young people aged 4 to 14. V2_ and the Watch That Sound team have developed step-by-step software that allows children to make their own short film soundtracks. 

Young participants receive a brief introduction on the importance of sound in film and new media and learn the functional difference between ambient sound, special effects and music. They analyze a film’s storyline and mood. With help from a technician, they record sounds using various microphone techniques. Then, they learn to use simple software to make their own soundtracks.
