Unit 1: Practical 2: FilmForms
Is sound important?
Sound is often thought of as a secondary factor in film. However most filmmakers consider sound to be equally as important to theoverall effect of watching a film.
Sound after our sense of smell is our strongest sense. Soundscan easily take us back to past memories evoking particular moods, images, and a sense of place or time. Its use in film,therefore is extremely important to create a realistic sense of place or atmosphere.
Cinema being a technological artform, often uses advancementsin sound technology to market films. Developments in sonictechnology such as Dolby noise reduction, THX , Surroundsound, are seen as adding to the whole cinematic experience or home cinema experience.
Sound Editing
Sound in the cinema does not necessarily match the image, nor does it have to be continuous. The sound bridge is used to easethe transition between shots in thecontinuity style. Sound can alsobe used to reintroduce events from earlier in the diegesis.Especially since the introduction of magnetic tape recording after WWII, the possibilities of sound manipulation and layering haveincreased tremendously. Directors such as Robert Altman arefamous for their complex use of the soundtrack, layering multiplevoices and sound effects in a sort of "sonic deep focus." In this clipfrom
(1975), we simultaneously hear a conversationbetween an English reporter and her guide, a gospel choir singing,and the sound engineers' chatter.
