Museum of the Moving Image

I live close to the Museum of the Moving Image, yet this is the first time I've been there.

I love stop motion animation, so of course had fun playing around with it.

One of the more interesting exhibits in the museum was the sound editing. I already knew that sound and video was usually done separately, but it was still interesting to see people dub the voices in the ADR booth.

Learning how sound effects were done was really interesting as well. It was surprising (and amusing) to find out that the sound effects used for the Titanic breaking apart were actually soda cans being crushed, elephants in distress and gun shots.

And apparently, Kate Winslet sounds like a chair and sandbag falling.
