Antoni Schonken and Arthur Feder run a collaboration with the Cape Town Animation School, where they produce soundtracks to the final year projects. Aret Lambrechts from the Music Technology Department manages the sound effects in conjunction with this, while our students (Carlie Schoonees, Jesse Dreyer, Kristi Boonzaaier) record the soundtracks each year.
