Slide 3

    Screening 1 without sound
    I was unaware of what the genre was, couldn't understand the plot. I didn't have any visceral experience. When I was watching it, it felt very boring, the 2 mins felt like it was dragging.  

Slide 4

    I could hear the ident in the beginning, non diegetic sound of instruments. Diegetic sound of traffic noises, tyres screeching, brakes on trains, phones ringing, dialogue and motif.I felt entertained and interested as the music had an upbeat fast pace. I was also engaged within the 2mins and it felt shorter than the first screening.
    Screening 2 with sound

Slide 5

    What difference does sound make? 
    Sound adds to the film plot, and helps you identify the genre. This helps people decide whether they will enjoy the film or not just by watching the opening. It allows you to have a visceral experience as the sound lets you enjoy the film to full effect.Though we might think of film as an essentially visual experience, we really cannot afford to underestimate the importance of film sound. A meaningful sound track is often as complicated as the  image on the screen. The entire sound track is comprised of three essential ingredients: the human voicesound effectsmusicThese three tracks must be mixed and balanced so as to produce the necessary emphases which in turn create desired effects.
