In Chapter Five we turn our attention to one of the most powerful weapons in a short form content creators arsenal: sound design. Although sound design can radically alter the mood of a sequence, audiences rarely take notice of sound design while consuming filmic content. Given how one of our main goals is to quickly evoke a feeling in the audience without them knowing how we did it – and thus without feeling manipulated – sound design is extremely useful to us.
Some of the more important things sound design can do for our work are:
- Helping to motivate an individual edit.
- Adding additional layers of meaning and psychological intensity to a scene.
- Motivating and signaling shifts in tone or time and space.
