DVaAP- 11/14

What’s the value of sound?

We’ll be working with sound most of the six weeks. Your productions should reflect working with sound.


  • Take a Guess
  • Continued Discussion on Sound Use
  • Read About it
  • Continue Planning

Take a Guess

With a partner (or two), watch the opening to the tv show Chuck. Talk with your partner (or two), and decide how many sound effects you think were in the 30 second intro. Trying to count while watching it may help.

Brief Overview 

  • Overused Sounds
  • Musical Scores

Read About It

Do a little bit of investigating on Gabriel Yared’s Rejected Score for Wolfgang Petersen.  Find an article or something about it. On your blog, tell me your thoughts on the whole situation regarding the Troy Score.

What is your opinion on how the situation was handled? You’ll get to hear music from both composers. Which do you like better? Do you think that a more likable piece of music is always a better piece of film score? Why or why not?
