Sound Effects

Any sound that could not realistically be made by one of the characters onscreen can be considered a sound effect, such as the sounds of cars, boats, and planes. Sound effects have a powerful impact on the way viewers react to a movie or video. Since they are not recorded during filming, they can be altered to change the mood or pace of a scene. In this way, they become part of the creative design of a film or video.

NOTE

SOUND DESIGN

The term sound design refers to the creative aspect of recoding and mixing audio. Just as a film has a “look” to it, it also has a “sound” that is consistent throughout the movie. Creating the sonic texture and character is the job of the sound designer. Usually there is a sound designer credit given in movies, and sound designers can even win Oscars.
