SOUND ANALYSIS. In this Assignment we have to analyse sound in this clip from The Hunger Games: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v =S2sXXG3tTaI&safe=active In this scene Katniss is being interviewed on a live show before she goes into the hunger games.
PURPOSE OF SOUNDThe pupose of sound is to: Set the moood / atmosphere in a scene Emphasize reality.Sound can either be Diegetic (sounds the character can hear) ornon diegetic(sounds the character cannot hear.) An example of diegetic sound is dialogue, and an example of non diegetic sound is Score(music) .
DIEGETIC SOUND: Throughout the whole clip the only sound that can be heard is diegetic sound. This is beacuse the sounds in this scene are all sounds which the character (Katniss) can hear.
