SUGGESTED STEPS

ADDING VOICE AND FOLEY

Watch the silent movie with your students

Discuss the types of shot and angle and what emotions they portray

Brainstorm the plot of the movie and the characterisation within the movie

Introduce the term foley (sound effects)

Brainstorm what sound effects would be effective for the silent movie

Write a script (for the voice over and sound effects)
NOTE: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE VOICE OVER & SOUND EFFECTS FOR EVERY SCENE. SOMETIMES SILENCE - NO CHARACTERS TALKING IS EFFECTIVE. IT ALSO GIVES A PLACE FOR THE MOOD AND EMOTION TO BE CREATED BY THE MUSIC ADDED IN THE NEXT ROUND.

Import the silent movie into iMovie or Windows Movie Maker

Record the sound track

Add credits for this rotation

Save and export movie

Dropbox the movie to the next class
