Categories and Functions of Sound

Review the General Instructions for your blog post before beginning.

As we have been discussing, the mise en scène of a film is the use of a variety of design elements to create the visual theme. Last week, we examined how different lighting styles and choices affected the final impact of a film. This week, we will consider different types of sound at work in film and assess how they contribute to the overall sense of meaning in a film.

There are many types of sound in a film. Some are diegetic (sounds that are represented as coming from within the world of the film); others are non-diegetic (sounds that come from outside the world of the film). Using specific examples from your chosen film, construct a blog post in which you:

  1. Describe each of the three basic categories of sound (dialogue, sound effects, and music).
  2. Explain how the different categories of sound are being used in your chosen film.
  3. Assess the impact of sound in establishing the theme.
  4. How does the use of sound inform the mood of the scene, or the film overall?
Can you identify specific sounds in your film that allow you to infer a particular genre?Since each category of sound may produce a range of effects, how might you characterize the effects in your film? For example, realistic and expected sound effects may have a different effect on a viewer than exaggerated or unexpected ones.Assess how the scene or sequence would play differently if you changed or removed a key category of sound.

You must use at least two outside sources, in any combination of embedded video clips, still photos, or scholarly sources. All sources should be documented in APA style, as outlined by the Ashford Writing Center. It is suggested that you approach this blog by focusing your attention on the same film you will write about in your Week Three Assignment. To submit this blog, you will be required to post a link to the specific blog entry in the discussion forum. You are encouraged to explore your classmates’ blogs, but no replies are required.
