Af12 Week 11 Class Voice Assignments



Course Description
An intermediate level media studies course exploring how sound functions in cinema. This course focuses on sound as media and the relationship between sound and image through topics including the history of sound technologies and the so-called 'coming of sound;' film sound theories, such as French composer Michel Chion's influential work on audio-visual relationships and the human voice in cinema, as well as feminist film theories on the female body and voice; film music and audience reception; sound space, and the evolving practice of sound recording and reproduction in film. These topics are examined through reading assignments, screenings and listening sessions, in-class presentations, writing and sound recording assignments. This class encourages a critical, creative approach, non-traditional solutions, and awareness of both historical contexts and theoretical frameworks. The course fulfills the media theory and media history requirements for the Intercollegiate Media Studies (IMS) major and minor. Prerequisite:  MS49, 50, or 51; or some introductory level music theory courses.
 



Statement of Student Learning Outcome
By the end of this course, students ideally are expected:

  • To develop a historicized understanding of how sound was incorporated into film production, exhibition, and criticism;
  • To develop a working knowledge of major film sound theories;
  • To acquire skills in analyzing the audio elements in a wide variety of films, including narrative, experimental/avant-garde, documentary, and other genres;
  • To be able to discuss and convey the above-mentioned knowledge and skills in both critical written arguments and in oral presentations/discussion;
  • To be able to work and learn in both individual and group contexts.

 

 

Course Organization
Class activities include discussion of reading assignments, screenings, presentations, critiques, as well as individual and group assignments. Both works by students and examples from Hollywood as well as other industrial and experimental films and media will be presented in class. Depending on funding and availability, guest speakers (sound artists, film and videomakers, media artists, programmers, scholars, etc.) will be invited to class, or to the Media Studies cinematheque series - be prepared to attend out-of-class screenings and lectures.

Please turn off all phones and mobile digital devices during class. Laptops can only be used for taking notes and for relevant web searches; no emailing, texting, and other activities unrelated to this class. These and other diversions are not acceptable during class time, and will lower your grade. 

Course Requirements
1.Attend all classes
2. Participation in class discussions and group critiques
3. Completion of writing and recording assignments as well as a final project or research paper

 



Attendance
Attendance and participation of all classes is required. Do not miss class or arrive late! If you miss class 3 times without a proper excuse, (e.g. a doctor's note if you are sick) you fail the class. Absences must be cleared by me before or after (in case of emergencies only) the class you missed in order for it to not affect your final grade. Attendance is determined by when I take roll.



 

Class Participation
Your active, well-prepared participation in class discussions is essential to creating a dynamic (i.e. not boring!) learning environment. Although you will not receive a letter grade for class participation, it will figure into your final grade based on my observations.

We may study sexually explicit, political, and otherwise challenging material in this course. These are not included for shock value, but are legitimate investigations of controversial subject matters in media. You are certainly encouraged to explore difficult and complex subject matters in your work, and you should be prepared to consider these issues intellectually and emotionally. Our class is a safe space in which students can express their beliefs and opinions. You always have a voice, but please be respectful of others as well. Abusive language and behavior are not be tolerated. Open-mindedness is encouraged!

 



Class Assignments and Projects
Students will complete the following assignments for this course:

1. In-class writing assignment: Identify. compare, and discuss the sound technologies used in 2-3 film excerpts (10% of class grade)
2+3. Choose TWO of the following assignments: a) take-home audio visual analysis assignment; b) take-home psychoanalysis assignment; c) take-home film music assignment; d) recording assignment (20% each, 40% total of class grade)
4. Working with a partner or small group (2-3 students), prepare a 5 minute excerpt from a film or video to present in class, accompanied by a 8-10 page paper. (30% of class grade)


Unless an extension is approved by myself in advance of the due date, your grade are reduced by one letter grade (i.e. B to C) per class day your project is late. You are encouraged to meet with me individually during my office hours to discuss your assignments, your grades, and your overall performance in class. I am always open to suggestions and feedback!

Grading
Your final grade will be based on the following
Assignment 1 - 10%
Assignments 2 and 3 - 20% each (40% total)
 Assignment 4 - 30 %
Class participation* 20%

* Your general performance in class including participation, attendance, and punctuality, except in the special cases listed above, such as if you have more than 3 unexcused absences.

Generally, outstanding ('A') students in this class have good attendance and completed all their assignments on time. They are consistently well prepared for class, and actively participate in and advance our discussions with pertinent information, questions, and observations. Their work demonstrate their awareness of the issues at hand, the historical context for the film and videos they are discussing, as well as their ability to articulate their observations and analyses in a clear and concise manner. Only letter grades are given out in this class.

Academic Dishonesty-Academic dishonesty in any form -- including the representation of someone else's work as your own, the destruction or malicious alteration of the work of others, the re-use of work prepared for another course, and so on -- will be subject to the most severe penalties permitted under your school's student code.

Extra credit- Students are encouraged to attend screenings, conferences, lectures, exhibitions and web events related to this course. Write a two-page (typed and double-spaced) report of the event or activity. Incorporate the event's relevance to the class as well as your personal responses to it. Proof of attendance is required (keep your ticket stubs, programs, etc.) Students are allowed two extra credit papers. Announcements for events of interest to this class are done in the first 5 mins. of each class.

* I try my best to make my grading criteria as clear as possible, and you are welcome to come and discuss your grades and your class performance with me. However, I only consider legitimate concerns, and be aware that your grade is as likely to go down as it is to go up after I reassess your assignment. I do not tolerate haggling, bribing, threats, and any other pointless arguments. I consider all aspects of your performance before I assign a grade, please respect my assessment as I respect your efforts.

Academy Fantasia (or True Academy Fantasia, formerly UBC Academy Fantasia) is a reality show held in Thailand. It is a singing contest, judged through popular votes.

Current True Academy Fantasia is already terminated its broadcast season with 12 last season .

Overview[edit]

Created by cable TV provider TrueVisions, formerly known as United Broadcasting Corporation (UBC), Academy Fantasia is a franchise of La Academia, a popular reality TV show from Mexico. The contestants are selected through nationwide auditions, as well as through online audition clips. The live auditions take place in major cities in every part of Thailand to search for those who dream about becoming superstars. Four judges will eliminate thousands of people down to top 100 then last twelve or more finalists into the Academy House for study.

The contestants live in the same house with hundreds of hidden cameras. Audiences can watch them 24 hours live on TV and online. Each week the contestants are assigned individual songs and sometimes group songs to perform on stage every Saturday until the last week of the show. The contestants attend voice class, dance class, and acting class to practice the songs that they perform.

The audiences can vote for their favorite contestants through cell phones and land phones. The show usually airs 24 hours on True Vision 20 (digital) and 16 (analog) and the concerts will be broadcast live on True Music Channel (Digital:26, Analog:30) and ModernNine TV (public channel 9) every Saturday night between 20:40-23:10 Thailand time.

After each performance the commentators will evaluate the performance. At the end of the concert, the contestant(s) who received the lowest percentage of audience votes will have to leave the show. The winners of the first five seasons were all male and was the first female in the season 6. The winners and the runners-up will automatically receive record deals with True Fantasia record label. After the end of each season, there is a nationwide concert tour starring the top 12 finalists.

1Contestant have the most popular vote of the week and can choose two contestants (within top12) back to the competition once again.
2Contestants were selected by the most popular vote contestant of the week to come back into the competition once again, their ranking would be reset.
3Contestant have the most popular vote of the week and receive a special prize, trip to any country in the world.


In the 4th season, AF had 20 contestants go into the Academy house. However, this was still considered the Semi-Finals, since there are normally only 12 final contestants in each season. Thus, by the end of the week, 8 of the contestants were supposed to be eliminated, leaving with only 12 people as the real finalists. After the 1st week's performance, the voting results showed that only 3 girls survived to the next round if they really eliminated 8 people. However, this could not happen according to the show's "bible" because in every season, there needs to be 5-7 men & 5-7 women (roughly equal number of men and women among the 12 contestants). Therefore, this week, instead of eliminating the bottom 8, they eliminated only the bottom 4, who were all female. It was also announced that in the following week, 4 male contestants would have to be eliminated, while the female contestants would be safe. In the 2nd week, the bottom 4 male contestants were eliminated by the end of the show.

1Contestants from online auditions.
2Contestant was the 2nd place popular vote of the week and received the Immunity Idol which could help her save herself from an elimination.
3None eliminated because a contestant decided to use the Immunity Idol to save herself from elimination.
4Contestants were given a chance to return into the Academy house just one week. There would be only 1 contestant can return to the competition again.
5Contestant got the most popular vote in the voting back week, and can return into the competition once again.

In the 5th season, 16 contestants were admitted to the Academy house, so in the first week 4 contestants were supposed to be eliminated (one male and one female from the online auditions, and one male and one female from live auditions.) At the actual concert, though, the audience and the contestants were surprised when only 2 female contestants were eliminated (one from online auditions and one from live auditions), so 2 male contestants (one from the clip auditions and one from the live auditions) would be eliminated in week 2.
