In this snippet of time (1:02:05 – 1:02:30), there is a lot of direct sound, sound bridging, sound editing, sound perspective, and non- diegetic sound going on in this particular scene. The scene begins with direct sound as Vork and Zaboo’s mom foolishly agrees to wed. Vork proposes the question Zaboo’s mom directly answers with “Oh my goodness, yes!” Later on, in the time frame, you have another example of direct sound where Bladezz is interacting with his audience to make his show more intriguing. To make the scene closer to what you would perceive in real life, typical audience reaction sounds are present. The results of the sound in the scene helps the clarity in which it is trying to deliver.

 

When the transition happens from one scene to the next, (Zaboo’s mom and Vork to Bladezz & Codex), there’s a little bit of sound perspective when Bladezz voice is louder than normal. Once the camera is focused on him, you can hear the change in his voice; it is much quieter than the initial arrival in the scene. Although, his voice wasn’t muffled or distorted because he was behind a door or in another room, his position in the scene is far from where it transitioned.

 

Another sound technique that I noticed was the use of sound bridging from one scene to the next. In the beginning of my selected time, there is a continuance of the background music/sound that carries over into the next scene. For example, after Zaboo’s mom and Vork decide on marrying each other, the scene switches to Bladezz and Codex’s show, and the attention is now on the two of them. During that happening, you still have the same sound in the background; your “elevator” music, as I would categorize it as. For Bladezz’s & Codex’s show, Bladezz ends up accidentally setting the stage on fire. Instantly, there is panic and an array of people trying to locate safety as quick as possible. With that, there is sound editing to make the scene more intense. From the time of 1:02:25 to 1:02:30, there is scary and forceful music in the background to accentuate the context of what is going on. This music is also an example of non-diegetic sound. None of the characters that were present in this scene could hear this sort of intense music that we, as the audience was able to experience.
