Tasks to do before Week 8
Expanded Possibilities – Sound and the Moving Image:
1. Read film critic/theorist David Bordwell’s article ‘The Boy in the Black Hole’ in which he talks with Hong Kong sound designer Mark Chappell. http://www.davidbordwell.net/blog/?p=2212. Write a blog post about your thoughts on Chappell’s ideas and comment on a film soundtrack which you think is a strong example of an audio-visual relationship.
2. Watch Good Copy Bad Copy, a documentary about ‘copyright and culture’: http://www.goodcopybadcopy.net/. Write a blog post about your thoughts and the two-sides of copyright: the corporation versus the creator. Where do you fit in?
3. Read about remix and mashups in the journal article from QUT: http://eprints.qut.edu.au/4239/. Also look at other remix resources: remixtheory.net and The American University Centre for Social Media and excellent article outlining Lessig’s theories from masternewmedia.org
