FINAL SOUNDTRACKS : Proposal and overview


For your final assignment you will be planning ( writing a proposal) then completely redubbing the audio elements from two moving image scenes (film/TV , 2 minutes +)
You will then explain your work in a detailed evaluation

This will put into practice the techniques you have learnt during the audio workshops.  You will be  assessed for the following ;
Creativity , technical quality, detailed and varied sound mixes, variety of technical skills and methods used, range of sound types and sound sources.

Remember :  You must recreate all of the diegetic sounds that the audience would expect to hear in your scenes, such asw  dialogue and sound effects. You can choose to add in other non-diegetic elements such as music or voiceover.

You must use  some dialogue dubbingmusic and  at least one Foley( homemade)  effect  in at least one of your soundtracks. It would be best to use music in only one of your scenes and  a variety of subtle and creative techniques in both of your scenes. This must also include some location recording (  dialogue, sound effects or background ambience) using a specific microphone or voice recorder.
