Exercise 1: Evoking Emotion Through Sound in Film

Sound is an integral part of any film. Some even say that the quality of a moving picture is 50% sound. Iconic sound design as seen in Jurassic Park or Star Wars have created their own worlds and defined a genre. Sound creates reality, makes things believable but also influence the emotion of a scene enormously. That's what we want to focus on in this exercise.

What to do


You can use any sound you can find on the internet. If you find sounds that are not in the public domain or free of licence you can use them for the screening in class but have to be really careful when putting it on the web. Self recorded sounds are much appreciated.
