I'm taking a break from polishing off my journey script to tell you all about are week in sound. We began by watching Francis Ford Coppola's "The Conversation" an interesting film which explores audio surveillance. Walter Murch was the supervising editor and sound designer an it was his work on the film we would be concentrating on. Tuesday led to practical sound work looking at various types of mics, including directional and radio. We were back using the cameras which helped me as I didnt use the camera much for our life project. We recorded different sounds including the buzz track in the Mac room which is the whir of the server and flurecent lights and the wild track outside of the birds and the buzz track of the traffic noise. From playing back our footage we discovered the sound quality wasn't up to scratch, all part of a learning curve, I feel and we will learn more with more experience.
