This morning we were lucky to have Victor Grbic, an industry professional guest lecturer, chat to us about what sound design is, how it works and why it is a very valuable and crucial role within the film industry. A well prepared presentation was played out for us, with Victor talking alongside this and providing examples of good and poor sound design through Youtube clips. He was really informative and I found myself learning some new terminologies and gaining a wider understanding and appreciation for this particular field.
It might sound silly, but I hadn’t heard of the word reverberation before! I thought this was a pretty cool term to pick up on…it simply means how long a sound is or can be drawn out for, the resonance it has/will have. I’ve always known that sound editing has a lot of variable components to it, but to hear a professional speak about it all just accentuated how much detail really goes into such work. Carsten says that next class, we will be capturing our own sound bites and adding them to the short films that we’ve been working on over the past few weeks.
P.S: over the past couple of weeks I’ve been looking at some videos around camera settings for filming/creating a filmic look and I thought it would be good to post them here for later reference and to share with those who view my blogs.
