Why Is Movie Sound So Powerful?

Analyze the relationship between sound and image

About This Tour


A dinosaur's roar, a dancer's tap shoes, a lightsaber's hum: each of these sounds conveys meaning in relationship to its accompanying image—respectively, terror, talent, and anticipation. 

If you're interested in learning how such sounds are made, "sweetened," and then rendered onscreen, then join us for this hour-long discussion on the relationship between sound and image.

You'll also explore several sound techniques; three types of sound (voice, music, sound effects); and the power of sound in cinema.
