Hey, I'm currently starting off my dissertation for my final year at college (real world next year, scary!!) I'm going under the title 'How does the relevance of Sound in Computer Games differ to that of Sound in TV and Film?' Luckily I don't have to write a HUGE amount - 6-8000 words and I've got a lot of research so far. What I'm looking for right now though is my 'primary sources' - which means people that are involved somehow in the field I'm investigating.
I've gotta think of some questions for them (although if they could spiel as much as they could that'd be great!) but I was wondering if anyone on the forum:
Knows someone that does work...
...in this field. Recording/Orchestrating or whatever, it will all be good. As so far I have piles of books and online stuff but I need a real person or two hehe. If you/they do similar stuff for TV or film that'd be cool too I suppose - getting an outside perspective.
Basically I will be laying it out like so:
Brief history of sound in games
Introduction to sound (in TV/Film Environment)
The Importance of the Soundtrack (meat and potatoes of my writing)
Then bibliography, images and other stuff.
Anway, if I could rope anyone into answering some questions or giving me their thoughts it'd be most excellent of you. I've got a few weeks to do it in but I'm not leaving it till the last minute haha so the quicker I can get all the research done and organised the quicker I can write this thing up properly.
Thanks for reading
P.S. I may bump this regularly, hope it's ok!
