THE ASSIGNMENT: AUDIO

Take any continuous section - up to, but not over 90 seconds - from the list above, and Sound Design it. For silent films, you must eliminate all existing sound and recreate it. For sound films, you can eliminate all sound, or choose to maintain original dialogue only. In all cases, sound effects and music must be removed and recreated. If dialogue is removed, it can be recreated and dubbed using the original script, or a newly written script. Do not recreate what has been done already, but rather mold it into something new. Sound Design it with a different intention than the original.
