Today, campers had to solve a sound effects puzzle: match the prop with the desired sound effect to discover crackling fire, horses galloping, and even a sword fight! Next we wrote small radio plays using the sound effects. The grand finale was a full blown presentation by Bricolage Theater's Tami Dixon, who brought in a ton of props and goodies, and had the whole class take part in a great train robbery!
Today, campers were introduced to radio plays and how sound effects are used to enhance a story. We listened to Ray Bradbury's "Zero Hour", a sci-fi tale about an alien invasion. With the scripts present, we were able to see the instructions for sound effects while listening to the results in the audio. Tomorrow, we'll make our own sound effects and receive a demonstration from Bricolage Theater's Tami Dixon.
