Music can be either diegetic (living in the world of the film, think music from a radio) or nondiegetic (existing outside of the reality of the film, your typical film score). But sometimes, music crosses from diegetic to nondiegetic. It exits the characters’ universe and enters ours, or vice versa. This is called Crossing the Fantastical Gap, and in this episode, the guys look at Reservoir Dogs (1992) and Apocalypse Now (1979) and how it works in specific scenes.

In this inaugural episode of Film Studies Minor, Zack, Colby, and Jackson introduce the concept of the show and jump into their analysis of Mad Max: Fury Road (2015). The world has been crying out for more under-qualified film analysis by a roundtable of millennials, and this conglomerate of amateurs is here to provide just that. We focus on the creative use of sound that helped Fury Road route the Oscars, while picking up Best Sound Mixing and Best Sound Editing.
