TEACHING AND TRAINING WITH MOTION PICTURES (MAGNETIC SOUND).
Bell and Howell Co., Lincolnwood, IL.
THE PREPARATION OF A MAGNETIC-SOUND TRACK FOR 16 MM. MOTION PICTURE FILMS IS DESCRIBED. IN SCRIPT PREPARATION, THE SCRIPT SHOULD BE WRITTEN IN NARRATIVE FORM TO INCLUDE ALL SHOTS NEEDED AND TO SUPPLEMENT AND GIVE INFORMATION NOT IN THE FILM. LANGUAGE SHOULD BE KEPT SIMPLE, AND UNAVOIDABLE TECHNICAL TERMS SHOULD BE EXPLAINED. IN REWRITING THE NARRATIVE, EDITED PICTURES AND TIME LENGTHS OF EACH SCENE SHOULD BE PROJECTED. SCRIPTS SHOULD BE WRITTEN IN SECTIONS SO THAT A SUITABLE RESTING SPOT CAN BE CHOSEN SINCE NARRATORS TIRE AND BECOME TENSE. IN RECORDING PREPARATION, TRAIL RECORDINGS SHOULD BE MADE TO CHECK EQUIPMENT, MICROPHONE PLACEMENTS, ACOUSTICS, AND BACKGROUND NOISES. RECORDING SHOULD TAKE PLACE IN THE SAME SETTING AND AT ONE SITTING BECAUSE ACOUSTICS CHANGE FROM TIME TO TIME. WHEN USING THE MICROPHONE, THE SPEAKER SHOULD STAY AT THE SAME LOCATION BY THE MICROPHONE, THE READING RATE SHOULD BE PACED, AND COPY SHOULD BE REWRITTEN TO AVOID SLOWING OR HURRYING. A PERSONABLE VOICE SHOULD BE SELECTED. FOR LIP SYNCHRONIZATION, CAMERA, TAPE-RECORDER, AND MAGNETIC-RECORDING PROJECTOR SHOULD BE FITTED WITH SYNCHRONOUS MOTORS. BACKGROUND MUSIC WHICH SUPPLEMENTS THE STORY SHOULD BE USED TO INDICATE CHANGE OF TIME, MOOD, OR PLACE. DISTORTION FACTORS AND SOURCES OF OUTSIDE INTERFERENCE SHOULD BE ELIMINATED. FULL-TRACK, SINGLE-PERFORATED FILM SHOULD BE OPERATED AT 24 FRAMES PER SECOND TO OBTAIN THE BEST SOUND TRACK RESULTS.
