  • Sound (Audio Codes)
    • Diegetic Sound
      • Sound which occurs within the world of the film
        • Dialogue
        • Sound Effects
        • Songs on the radio
        • Any sound that characters within the world of the film react too.
          • TV Programs etc..
    • Non-Diegetic sound
      • Sound which does NOT occur within the world.
        • Purely there for the audience
        • Voice-over
        • Score
        • Any sounds that characters within the world are not meant to hear
    • Sound-track
      • Has two meanings
        • 1) Any sound you hear within the piece (literal track of sound you hear)
          • Music, effects + dialogue. . .
        • 2) The collection of songs and tracks that already exist and have been placed into the clip
          • E.g. The Prodigy's 'Stand Up' in Kick Ass (2010)
    • Score
      • The orchestral music accompanying a clip
        • Can make a huge difference
    • Synchronous Sound
      • Sound that is 'in sync' with the action on the screen - both in terms of timing and atompshere
        • Pixar's 'Up' score at the start of the movie. Heart-breaking when the film shows tragedy. Uplifting when the film is happy. . . .
      • The important opposite of 'Asynchronous sound'
    • Asynchronous Sound
      • The important opposite of 'Synchronous' sound
      • Sound which is not 'in sync' with the action on the screen. Both in terms of timing + atompshere
  • Sound which is not 'in sync' with the action on the screen. Both in terms of timing + atompshere
