Product Description
This product explores how sound is used in film to enhance the movie going experience. This product is a great introductory assignment because it looks at how movie trailers use sound to effectively communicate the genre and mood of the film, as well as captivating the audience within a short amount of time. Students will view trailers from a variety of genres, and examine how a mood can be established by the very first sound effect. This could be used in a film studies course, a drama class, or in language arts during a film unit.

Students will learn:
- How mood is created in film using sound
- What sound editing is
- What makes a movie trailer successful
- Moods in film

Students will:
- Brainstorm moods in movies
- Examine 6 trailers, looking specifically at genre and music
- Act as a judge at the Golden Trailer Awards
- Critically examine 5 nominees for Best Sound Editing
- Defend their winning trailer
