Description

Sound. In the beginning, movies only had sound in the form of musical accompaniment provided in the theater. Since then, recorded sound has become an indispensable part of movies. In this session, we will consider how music, speech, and sound effects can be used to add meaning to the images on the screen. Our examples will be drawn from Alien, The Adventures of Robin Hood, and The Passenger. After the lecture, we recommend watching Singing in the Rain.
