Part of Lesson Plan: Introduction to Sound for Film and Video
Activity Overview / Details
Teacher hands-out, or posts the pdf document, " SOUND FOR FILM TERMS"
Through guided instruction, and class discussion, ask the students to get into pairs, and find examples of the terms in the handout that they heard in one of the three videos viewed for this lesson. Ask each pair to site three examples from the handout, and share with the class.
EXAMPLE : The foley Artist for AVATAR created his own AMBIENCE for the forest world of Pandora.
Relating the handout to the videos helps the students make connections and see examples of the terms. This also allows the teacher opportunities for Formative assessment through observation and participation in class/group discussions.
The teacher plays each of the four audio file examples provided - one at a time, and asks the students to identify what kind of sound it is.
