The project aim is to find the link between sound design in cinema and the way in which it affects an audient emotionally. The goal is to find out if this element of cinema creates an emotional connection with the viewer psychologically, and how this affects the immersion of the film as a whole. This will be recorded using both qualitative and quantitative analysis of the audient.
Kenny’s feedback: “No real context or problem – why study this? The way your question is written, isn’t the answer obviously yes? I can point you to several films (some of which we studied last year) where the sound design has emotional impact. What other more nuanced questions might you ask about sound design in film that would give you something to investigate?”
