This position is for cataloging notes and sounds for an upcoming experimental film. This will consist of recording sounds from films that have already been earmarked by episode and timestamps. Cataloging the dialogue in the form of MP3s and recording the notes. Also, there will be time set aside for scrubbing through a large number of “Cartoons” and noting certain specific examples.
