SOUND AS CHARACTER

Nina Garthwaite, the documentary filmmaker and director of “In The Dark” (a travelling "cinema" for creative audio documentaries) will be in conversation with Isis Thompson, documentary film and audio maker. 

1800 - 2000 Saturday 30th July 2016

We will look at the role of sound in storytelling for both film and radio.  How does sound work to establish location, ambience, and story?  What is the relationship between sound and picture?  Are there moments when images can usefully give way to sound? And what happens when sound takes over?  We will also explore the impact of different types of sound - including music, sound effects, the creative use of silence and the many different techniques of verbal storytelling.
