Hey you guys! Hello from a sound design/ sound engineering student from Brazil :)
Recently I decided to come up with a Research to apply for the Master's Degree in USP (Sao Paulo University, in Brazil) since one of the programs has an specific class for Sound Design (not so easy to find round here!). What happens is that USP is the most renown university in Brazil and, therefore, hard to guarantee your place in it. The research's idea must be GREAT! The first thing that came up to my mind, since I need a great material for researches and It's not that easy to find tons of books talking about Sound Design's concepts and professionals, was to write about semiotics in the Walter Murch sound career in movies. However, the guy that teaches the Sound Design class has done it before! HA! Too obvious!
Now I'm completely lost thinking about the focus of my research. I thought about comedy movies sound design but It's OH SO HARD to find material about the professionals envolved... and I feel REALLY bad mentioning a director in the tittle without knowing his participation in the sound creation so... oh my!
Thought about Tarantino's movies and the kung fu old movies inspiration... but... not sure.
Do you guys have any good idea about what should I do my research about? This can be a life changing answer! Thank you VERY VERY much!
