Lecture同Tutorial都唔洗上,返到去只係睇下戲剪下片
佢本身就唔識classical同electronic music所以係睇你剪得合唔合佢口味

上tutorial係做assignment..唔上都得
上lecture咁多堂都係重覆同一堆concept
assignment sem尾一次過交曬...用imovie再上網求其搵d音樂擺落去
無exam...mid term係mc..唔洗溫書都識..
Group present..唔洗寫paper/report
會唔會太過hea
Attendence sheet 佢堂堂都唔記得帶...

you must be very interested in this topic for you to get a good grade and enjoy the class

attendance is taken but it doesn't affect your grade

Olaf may be hard to understand sometimes with his accent (he's from Germany)

極hea
一個group project, 揀套電影然後解釋個配樂有咩作用
有quiz 但好易
有3份assignment, 幫movie clip配樂
只要上堂consult佢, 照佢意見做就得

Workload:
Small technique practice
2 online open book test
Film music critic, presentation
Final music project

Lectures were boring and teachers' English were a bit unclear. However, the course tasks were fun. Tests were not that hard but need efforts to find online as some are mentioned during lectures only. The critic is like a 1000word and the presentation count for only 5%. Final project requires making background music and SFX using sources were given and websites. I have little to no music background and do not compose any music for the final project, but still got a good grade. So, Robert does not emphasize on composing your own music and more on the creativity of the arrangement of music.

The course has 2 open quizes, 2 individual projects, a group presentation which is followed with a individual project and a final project.
兩個quiz都係開卷的,可以上網查,雖說難但是只要用心查都能查到。兩個project第一個占10% no matter how 只要你hand in on time就給你100分 第二個project佔比25% 和其關聯的group pre3佔比5% 是一個group 選擇一個lib里有的電影寫影評。 final project是給電影配BGM和SFX,然後寫一份報告,報告他給了樣本。 對於熟悉視頻製作的做呢個proj唔算難。tutorial課上也會教使用一些製作軟體,之前唔會VIDEO/AUDIO EDITING的可以使用嗰個軟體。就是有一點,Prof的英文唔好懂 ALL OF ALL 懂音樂會做視頻 get A quite easy

2 quizes+ 2 individual assignments + 1 group presentation
If you attended the lectures you can answer the quizes easily, and actually you are allow to search on web for the answer while doing the quizes.
For individual assignments, Robert upload everything we need on web, as long as you follow the sample work closely, you can actually get a good grade.
The presentation is a simple, just discuss the music of a film your group choose will do.
It is a quite interesting course, if you like music and movie, it shouldn't be anything hard for you.

本身識用Logic/cubase

lecture tutorial take attendance

tutorial有 gp present 基本上係個tutor睇完份pj con你地組

tutor教你用software整電影配樂
final project可以唔用佢個software做
感覺隨心輕鬆
利申唔識彈琴,pj求其彈幾個chord落去順耳算

I feel that this course need creativity to get A and A+ grades and only few are given. More than paying attention in class and tutorial, to score in the Music Composition projects one must have good experience in not only the composition SOFTWARE but also on Background Music design. Function and role of background music played will also help get A range grade. Inorder to score high in quiz and test, attention should be payed to lecture and side-by-side notes must be taken which can be used for revision. Dont depend too much on Lecture slides, its is bare minimum, rather pay close attention to Robert's Music history information and trivia.
Maya Tong is a really helpful and smart person, but please do take his advise when it comes to editing sound for music, because he only gives you FINAL GRADE ( add his FB for more help lol)

拎到呢個GRADE其實好surprise
上完成個sem堂真心學唔到任何野 一直擔心呢科會爛GRADE
上堂通常都係由頭訓到尾 因為我根本唔知佢講緊咩
講啲野對我黎講好散 我組織唔到...

Workload其實唔重 不過做soundtrack report個陣真係有唔知做緊咩既感覺
內容係揀套戲然後discuss佢個music use
我係吹到冇野吹咁....所以分數okay咁啦
Present其實真係hea到乜 每人講得2分鐘內 唔係好serious既presentation
仲有兩個QUIZ 俾你goggle search 加上出俾我既問題都算容易 所以分數唔錯

總結就係呢科唔係努力就可以好GRADE 完全係運氣......
care成績既揀呢科前諗多兩諗
雖然上堂真係可以上都唔上 搵人tick attendance 又或者訓足成堂冇罪惡感

上堂唔知導師講乜。
兩份為短片配樂的功課,無人知評分準則。
一份電影配樂的評論,種類不限但最好揀著名的電影。
兩個open-book測驗雖然很難,但只要在YouTube搜尋電影 trailer 就找到答案。

上堂好hea,完全走堂,叫人take attendant即可。

有兩個quiz 可google。
無放好多時間係依科到。
學唔到野。
想hea 想正正常常grade都可以揀依個。

The main problem is that I almost have learned NOTHING in this GE ! The tutor speak very fast and always introduce some musicians and music history, which is very boring. I really love music and film but this course is not like what I want.
There are two quiz that very different even thought you can google the questions.
The final project is making a soundtrack for a video which is interesting, but i don't know what the standard that the tutor give the grade.
Very low workload but don't expect have good grades. It's very different to get A range. I spend a lot of time about the project and quiz but still can't get expected grade.
All in all, not a good subject to take.

呢科只可以用"付出同收獲唔成正比"黎形容
D GRADE完全係亂比
就算你幾俾心機都唔會A RANGE到
鐘意音樂同MIXING既可以一戰 但真心成個SEM上足堂都唔會學到D咩野
特別一提final project Robert鐘意d學生自己整背景音樂 如果唔識作曲既話其實好難高分
身邊好多朋友已爛grade :)

滿心歡喜reg左呢科但發現中左伏所以特登係reg科前上黎忠告各位不要犯人類相同的錯誤既憤青 上

專心上 lecture 同 mark 低重點對於quiz好重要.
雖然quiz俾你 google, 但係好多都搵唔到, 要靠lecture mark 低既野.

Assignment 尚算輕鬆, 但係最尾既 final project 要用專業既電腦 program, 對於配樂混音無乜興趣就唔建議揀呢科.

只要肯努力做assign, 個分唔會太差, 不過唔好對於攞 A range 既高水平有太大期望

quiz好難 基本上要將佢上堂打返份transcript要錄埋音黎溫先會識哂
openbk但係google都搵唔到
grp present好hea只要有一齊grp埋講過套戲既sound就溝通就得
份paper都幾多野寫下 不過個分都幾好
最後final pj用左唔算好多時間做 個分唔係幾好 得79.5
比幾多努力會得到幾多分 不過整體黎講呢科同想像中有幾大既出入
學到既唔多
唔係幾recommend

真係好hea
lecture雖然會點名
不過只係傳點名紙
如果想讀hea ge呢科會幾岩
但係grade真係好唔穩陣
music本來就好主觀
佢中意就可以比好高分
完全唔知個標準係咩
所以真係好中意音樂既話可以試下
但本人真係完全唔推薦

It is a really good subject for people who really love music, its inspiring.

The grade is truely depended on your sense about music and film.

If you own the sense and heart about music and film music, it's truely a good GE course choice. Otherwise, you wouldn't enjoy the bad grade in the end.

After all, my comment and the above comments are just feeling after people getting their grades. As a responsible university student toward public's money, parent's money, your own money and your own life, you should think independently of how to invest your time and captial on the courses provided by the system.

Good luck.
