Students adapted eleven short stories written by classic and contemporary authors into 5 minute films. The films screened were completely silent; all sound came from the students’ performances of original live scores, Foley sound effect work and turntable mixes.
In groups of 4-5 members, students were asked to direct, edit, tape and design films that delivered audiences a truly cinematic experience. Once the silent films were shot and completed, student groups were then asked to develop into a live sound design and music performance group. Their goal was to bring their stories to life through strategic audio choices. For many students, the equipment, software and media approaches were brand new to their learning experiences.
