Dirty Harry’s Gun

(I had hoped to do something a little more special for you all on my birthday, but a ten hour computer scare rendered my whole day unproductive. And so I’m posting my “In Case of Emergency” entry. It’s a year old, but hopefully it will be new to most of you.)

A few years ago my buddy Tom brought this to my attention. It’s a wonderful aspect of Magnum Force (1973), one of the Dirty Harry films. I took that ball and ran with it, creating this three-and-a-half minute demonstration about sound design. (Please excuse the occasional patches of black. This is a sampler of how I teach a class.)
