This lesson and supporting resources provide an extremely detailed account for the full history of sound within Film and the Film Industry. This massive lesson covers the full history from early experiments with both sound and image all the way through to modern-day surround sound systems. The material in this resource would easily cover 4 to 5 lessons over roughly 5 or 6 weeks and would be excellent for Music technology, Film Studies and Media lessons.
All material, presentations and worksheets, within this resource has been recently updated and now includes links to online 'Distance Learning' versions through Google Slides™. This allowing extra flexibility and continued support if students are learning and engaging from outside the classroom at home.
The presentation/lecture covers the development of sound technology and how it developed alongside the Film Industry throughout the Golden Era to contemporary Cinema. The presentation has 50 detailed slides, these with embedded video links and examples to YouTube, thus providing an excellent addition to the resource.
This resource also comes with 4 classroom tasks that can be completed alongside the lesson/presentation and integrated videos, and will aid learning and revision for learners. Part of this is a very interactive lesson where students “map” the history of audio technology in film with a “Cut-Out Timeline”. Moreover, all these classroom tasks come with Answer-Sheets, to aid marking of student’s submitted work.
Furthermore, each of these Classroom Tasks come in a “No Style”, black and white print out or an attractive, “Styled” version to help engage learners.
This resource also comes with an Infographic resource to aid learning. This covering the full timeline of Sound from 1894 to modern-day. This also has embedded YouTube videos links for many of the major dates throughout the Timeline.
