Hannibal sound designer on how to scare people with music on 99 Percent Invisible. Photo by Sheila Sund/Flickr Roman Mars’ podcast 99% Invisible covers design questions large and small, from his fascination with rebar to the history of slot machines to the great Los Angeles Red Car conspiracy. Here at The Eye, we cross-post new episodes and host excerpts from the 99% Invisible blog, which offers complementary visuals for each episode. This week's edition—about scary music in films and TV—can be played below. People who make horror movies know: If you want to scare someone, use scary music. There are two fundamental ways to make music scary. The second way horror movie music makes you feel uneasy is to go the other direction: low grumbling sounds. Mix these two and you’re on your way to creating a classic scary soundtrack. Composer Brian Reitzell’s score for Hannibal lives half in music, half in sound design. To produce a revving sound, Reitzell slid his fingers up and down the neck of a bass. Photo by Feliciano Guimaraes/Flickr Courtesy of NBC

Novelltema Noveller är tacksamt att arbeta med – de är korta och man kan hinna med många av läroplanens mål under en lektion som läsa, diskutera, skriva och reflektera. När ni jobbar med noveller kan ni behöva ha ett analysschema tillhands för eleverna och här hittar ni ett. När jag arbetar med noveller med en klass så kan mjuka upp med att högläsa en lämplig novell, jag brukar ofta välja Maskrosen av Margit Bethlen där jag har frågor till som eleverna kan diskutera efter läsningen. Jag har novellen i Magasinet, men ni kan hitta den här också. Sedan kan man gå igenom vad som är typiskt för en novell med ett novellrecept. Det är också bra att ha tillhands när eleverna ska skriva egna noveller. Novellrecept För att träna på skrivandet av egna noveller kan man göra stafettnoveller. Skrivandet kan också stödjas av att få exempel att härma, som görs i detta klipp av Malin Larsson. En annan novell som passar sig bra för högläsning är Pälsen av Hjalmar Söderberg. Så här blev en novell i Malins klass

Documentary Film Makers in Delhi NCR, India | Razzmatazz Films While Mumbai is the heart centre of commercial film production in India, one finds many documentary filmmakers in Delhi. That’s probably because Delhi is a centrally located gateway to a wide range of destinations, heritage sites, historical locations and pilgrimage centres. In short, Delhi takes you to places that have stories – and that’s what documentary film production is all about: stories… stories that educate, inform and engage… stories that stir passion and emotions… stories that empower. Documentary filmmakers aren’t just film makers – they are storytellers, recreating in a new medium the ancient art of weaving tales. A documentary film maker uses digital films as his or her canvas for narrating a great story… a compelling story… a story that must be told. You can choose to work with us using two models. In the second model, you can approach us with a story or a script – and we’ll take it forward from there.
