REEL TALK meet ups

Up next: Thu 4 April at 6pm in The Kitchen

This month’s Reel Talk takes inspiration from both the upcoming release of the wordless animated wonder, Robot Dreams, and our special screening of the 1927 silent cinema classic, Chicago, which will be enlivened by a live musical score!

Join cinema team member Bradley as we talk about the importance of music in film. Is it the greatest filmmaking tool? From contrapuntal to diegetic music, the impact of music is never more prevalent than it is in silent cinema. It makes you question: with the right music, is dialogue needed at all? Let’s talk about how music enhances the film experience by not only informing the narrative but also by making you feel emotions that an Oscar-worthy performance or dialogue can’t.

Bradley is a graduate in media and performance at The University of Salford where his final practical dissertation was centred around the impact music has on narrative.
