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. As you prepare to write this discussion, take a few moments to do the following:
Review the grading rubric for this discussion.
Select a film from this list of approved choices. Note: If you would like to write about a film that is not on this list, you must email your professor for approval in advance or you may not receive credit on this discussion.
There are many types of sound in a film. Some are diegetic (i.e., sounds that are represented as coming from within the world of the film) while others are non-diegetic (i.e., sounds that come from outside the world of the film). Your text describes the different categories of sound that fall under those types. What types of sounds, and what categories, are most effectively used in the film under consideration?
Write (due Thursday, Day 3)
Construct a discussion post of at least 200 words, and using specific examples from your chosen film,
Describe each of the three basic categories of sound (dialogue, sound effects, and music).
Explain how the different categories of sound are used in your chosen film.
Assess the impact of sound in establishing the theme.
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 (Links to an external site.). Please view the video Posting in a Discussion in Canvas (Links to an external site.) for guidance on how to integrate multimedia with your response.
Guided Response (due Monday, Day 7): Respond substantively (150 to 175 words) to at least two classmates who chose a different film than you did. In your responses, reference your initial post and show how your ideas relate to those of your peers, extending the discussion. Provide support for your position. Substantive responses use theory, research, experience, and/or examples to support ideas and elaborate on the discussion topic.
