Our class all pitched their treatments for their various video projects that will all come together over this last 3 weeks of the session. As expected there were an interesting array of ideas and many technical and narrative complications for everyone to deal with.

Tom was pretty hard on everyone I think, making sure that we all see the problems that are before us. We are exploring a few changes to the script now and there will be a further update in the next day or so.

The lecture was all about sound in film which was great, I particularly liked the little reference to Blazing Saddles and the band in the desert. That said, the funniest bit was the Wilhelm Scream – lets let the video speak for itself:

Another vid covering the history of the Wilhelm Scream.
