Abstract: A dramatic motion picture or parts thereof is divided into sections in which the words and pauses form an approximate rhythmic pattern. Film techniques are then employed to alter the pauses or words or both to provide the rhythmic pattern with a convenient common denominator of a comparatively low number which can serve as a common denominator for the time signature of a musical composition. A musical composition is then composed with an appropriate time signature to provide an easy or listenable rhythm using the common denominator thus achieved. The composition is provided with lyrics and an accompaniment in synchronism with the rhythm built into the film by film-editing techniques. A new soundtrack is photographed with the artists performing the musical composition at a tempo corresponding to the tempo at which the film is to be shown. A composite print is then made of the action and the words and music which will appear in synchronism with the lip movements and action of the dramatic motion picture.

Show all 6 claims
    1. A method of inserting music and lyrics into an antecedently filmed dramatic motion picture including the steps of arranging a section of a film into segments forming an approximate rhythmic pattern of the lip movements and pauses in the dramatic film, editing the film to alter the film length of the lip movements and pauses to revise the rhythmic pattern to produce a common denominator of a musical time signature providing a listenable rhythm, composing music in accordance with said time signature, writing lyrics conforming to the music, making a track negative of the music and lyrics, producing a new negative from the edited film and then making a composite print of the new negative and the track negative in which the music and lyrics will be in synchronism with the lip movements
