013: Was Film Ever Silent?

This episode on Pathfinder there is more than meets the ear. Put on your headphones to immerse yourself in just how much of your perception in film is thanks to the sounds that surround you.

Hello Pathfinders! We're back this week with another episode all about music and sound in storytelling. Listen now to find out why silent films never were so silent, how chickens and walnuts made you reel back in your seat and how layering every technique in the book is what leads to you finding an escape when you sit down to watch your favourite film.

Thank you for listening to Pathfinder. You can find out the video version and more information about this show at https://pathfinder.show/
