There are many types of sound in a film. Some are diegetic (i.e., sounds that are represented as coming from within the world of the film) while others are non-diegetic (i.e., sounds that come from outside the world of the film). Your text describes the different categories of sound that fall under those types. What types of sounds, and what categories, are most effectively used in the film under consideration?
Write (due Thursday, Day 3)
Construct a discussion post of at least 200 words, and using specific examples from your chosen film,
- Describe each of the three basic categories of sound (dialogue, sound effects, and music).
- Explain how the different categories of sound are used in your chosen film.
- Assess the impact of sound in establishing the theme.
- How does the use of sound inform the mood of the scene, or the film, overall?
- Can you identify specific sounds in your film that allow you to infer a particular genre?
- Since each category of sound may produce a range of effects, how might you characterize the effects in your film? For example, realistic and expected sound effects may have a different effect on a viewer than exaggerated or unexpected ones.
- Assess how the scene or sequence would play differently if you changed or removed a key category of sound.
