One of the pioneering films of the emergence of modern sound design in film was 1974’s The Conversation, directed by Francis Ford Coppolla, and featuring sound design by Walter Murch, who was poised to emerge later in the decade as a pioneering figure in film sound with his work on Apocalypse Now in 1979. The film’s plot involves the use of sound in surveillance of characters in the story, and it is cleverly integrated into the art and technology of the time with regard to audio recording and editing.
Your 3rd paper for this course will be an analysis of the 1974 film The Conversation. You must view the film before you write your paper. (Look for it online or via streaming services).
Focus on the sound design of the film and how sound design contributes to the narrative of the film and how it creates a particular mood for the viewer. What role does sound play for the characters? What experience does the sound design create for the viewer? 4 – 6 pages in length; the assignment is due at the end of Module 14.
