STRING AND TINS LAUNCH BID TO NURTURE FEMALE SOUND DESIGN TALENT.
12 March 2019

Sound design studio String and Tins have launched a bid to nurture female sound design talent. Sound design is another area of the advertising and filmmaking businesses with a huge bias towards men, and attempts to recalibrate in favour of women are often thwarted by the ratio of those applying to join when jobs are advertised.

While many people in the industry might be inclined to consider that the end of the matter and continue to recruit exclusively from the male applicants, String and Tins have opted to be pro-active by launching a programme they're calling 'No Fixed Mix'.

To that end, they are inviting aspiring sound designers to apply for a place on the programme. The deadline is Sunday 24th March, and applying is really easy and requires a minimal demonstration of skill. Successful applicants will be able to attend regular workshops as well as being given free subscriptions to professional tools.

You can find out more by checking out the 'No Fixed Mix' section of the String and Tins website; by contacting Eimear on 020 7434 0168 or emailing her using producers@stringandtins.com
