SOLD OUT | Pop-up Studio: Sound Synchronization

Ages 8 and up
Sun, Mar 10 | 10:30am–12:30pm
Learning Center

Steamboat Willie (1928) revolutionized animation as the first cartoon to include sound that fully matched the actions on screen. As seen in gallery 2, achieving this effect required creative innovations in sound recording. In this workshop, learn about the Cinephone sound system, the metronome ball, and the process of creating practical sound effects. Using everyday objects, you will work collaboratively to create sounds that synchronize perfectly with a piece of animation.
