I have learned that music is a crucial component of a film because it creates vital aspects such as mood, tension, character status and facilitates smooth transitions, making the film interesting and relatable.

Listening and watching the film has exposed me to various sounds that have facilitated my understanding of the short film and the emotional connection to various scenes. The sounds used heightened scenes’ drama and emotion.

Like visuals, film sounds are an important component of a movie. Different types of sounds are matched with different film scenes to convey the intended message and position the audience in an emotionally vulnerable place.

Sounds are recorded and synthesized artificially to match film scenes. Filmmakers incorporate three sounds in projects to succeed: sound effects, human voice, and music. Sometimes silence is also used in specific scenes to enhance emotion

The sounds that fall into the music category include soft background music and the song incorporated in the film. Environmental sounds used in the film include squeaky sounds, equipment self-noise, robotic movement sounds, interference, ground loops, and metal door bang sounds.

Vocal sounds include a conversation between the characters in the film.

Diegetic music refers to music from the film’s setting, while non-diegetic music originates from sounds outside the film set. The film’s diegetic music includes the metallic door’s banging, whistles, equipment self-noise, and squeaky cockroach sounds. On the other hand, non-diegetic sounds include soft music playing in the background.

Onscreen sounds originate from a source that viewers can see, while off-screen sounds come from a source where viewers cannot see. Some of the onscreen sounds used in the film are song, banging of the metallic door, squeaky cockroach sounds, and whistles. Off-screen sounds include soft music in the background, interference, and ground loops.

Simultaneous sounds used in the film is the soft background music, while non-simultaneous sounds are the bang on the metallic door and whistles

Internal sounds used in the film include the excitement of Eve, a character in the movie, as it handles different objects in the spaceship. External sounds include squeaky cockroach sounds, robotic movements sound, and ground loops

The sound effect that contributes to a better understanding of the character Eve is the squeaky excitement sounds the character makes as it interacts with different objects like the bulb and the Rubik’s cube in the spaceship. It depicts the character’s emotions in the setting.
