I'm putting together a talk on the basics of sound design for theatre and I wanted to grab a short clip demonstrating sound design transitioning from the non-diegetic realm into the conscious of the setting and characters on-screen. I'm showing a film example for the purposes of demonstration but want the participants to consider how they could achieve this in the live realm.
The only example I can think of currently is the familiar trope of a character daydreaming / sleeping and hearing voices in an ethereal, reverberant manner. The voices quickly "dry out" when the character snaps back into reality / wakes up.
I'd love to hear others examples of where they've seen this work the best as I'm at a bit of a loss.
