October 10, 2007 Sound Design Film uses sound to convey an experience. Sound is often neglected. Film is thus a visual and oral medium. When sound was first added to film, many worried that a lot would be lost in terms of an image conveying meaning in a movie (that visual design would become sloppy). There was never a silent movie. In “silent films”, a musician would play songs to accompany the film. There was great thematic value. Sound can get deeper into the subconscious than an image. One can also detect more sounds than they can degrees of color and light in an image. Elements of a Soundtrack: I: Verbal – dialogue, off-screen voice (voice that the actors in the frame cannot hear… two types: “I” narration or Authoritative narration in which we never see the person whom the voice belongs to), and singing. II: Music – scoring and source music. Source music is heard by the characters in the film (music from radio, etc) while score is not heard by the characters. Type of music, length of music, and placement of music are all important.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
