Dr. Peter Rothburt from Ithaca College came into Alfred State to have a presentation on the synergy of sight and sound. He talked about the awareness of sound. For example, there is intro and outro music. Music sometimes reveals unseen actions or thoughts in a film, it subtly says whats going on. Transition music also exists which aids in the continuity of the storyline. Music also can be used as a sound effect, to highlight the action on screen. This presentation was beneficial because later I will have to deal with sound and its interaction with video.
