Comm 140 Question Set 2 1. 1.What is diegesis? Be precise with your terms and your meanings in defining this. Diegesis comes from Greek theatre meaning the telling or recounting of a story. However, its true definition is much more encompassing. In film, diegesis is the total world of the story, this can include traffic, streets, stores, and people on or off screen all count as diegetic because they all exist in the world of the story. 2. 2.Distinguish synchronous from asynchronous sound, and give an example of each. Synchronous sound is the matching of sound with the image that is projected. Examples of this include a dialogue or a dog barking. Asynchronous sound is sound that is purposely out of sync in order to produce a certain effect. A voiceover is an example of this. 3. 4. 5. 3.Distinguish simultaneous from nonsimultaneous sound, and give an example of each. Simultaneous sound is sound that takes place at the same time as the image in terms of the story events. A conversation between two characters is an example. Nonsimultaneous sound is sound that occurs earlier or later then in the story’s plot that we can see in the image. Any kinda of flashback falls into this category.
