Also played with layering sound motifs - certain pieces of music, melody, or serious of notes that goes with certain character, emotion, or scene (Kong has a 3 note motif in descending order that we always hear as he comes) the music acts as a cue to the audience, somber, minor key – sets the mood for what’s going to happen as Kong climbs the Empire State Building, as he goes higher the music goes higher.

    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.
