Answers Keywords Location Explanation
14. B P1, L 1-4 Though  we  might  think  of  film  as  an  essentially  visual experience, we really cannot afford to underestimate the importance of film sound.
  • underestimate=overlook
15. A Humphrey Bogart, exemplify P2, L4-10 Often with film characterization, the audience perceives little or no difference between the character and the actor. Thus, for example, the actor Humphrey Bogart is the character Sam Spade; film personality and life personality seem to merge.”
  • merge = become one

Humphrey Bogart is mentioned to exemplify the significance of the actor and the character appears to have similar personalities.

16. B P3, L6-12 It  is  interesting  to  note  that  how  dialogue  is  use and the very amount of dialogue used varies widely  among  films.  For  example,  in  the  highly  successful  science-fiction  film  2001,  little  dialogue  was evident, and most of it was banal  and of little intrinsic interest.”
  •  banal =dull or boring
17. D suggest, Bringing Up Baby,  P4, L 1-8 The comedy Bringing Up Baby, on the other hand, presents practically non-stop dialogue delivered at breakneck speed.

18. C click of a door, realistic sounds P5, L 6-19 Synchronous sounds contribute to the realism of film and also help to create a particular atmosphere. For example, the ‘click’ of a door being opened may simply serve to  convince  the  audience  that  the  image  portrayed  is  real,  and  the  audience  may  only  subconsciously note the expected sound. However, if the ‘click’ of an opening door is part of an ominous action such as a burglary, the sound mixer may call attention to the ‘click’ with an increase in volume; this helps to engage the audience in a moment of suspense.”

By using sound mixer realistic sounds can be modified by increasing the sound volume to make it more realistic.

  • help=aid
  • audience=viewer
  • make connections within a film = linking scenes
23. FALSE  audiences, aware, affecting P last, L 6-9 The effects of sound are often largely subtle and often are noted  by only our subconscious minds.
  • subtle =delicate or faint or slight
24. C response, different parts, controlled P2, L1-4 The entire sound track consists of three essential ingredients: the human voice, sound effects and music. These three tracks must be mixed and balanced so as to produce the necessary emphases which in turn create desired effects.
