Advanced Hard Disk:
For our final project, we were required to do sound design for a trailer in 5.1 Surround Sound. Some requirements included sound effects, ADR, music, and foley effects. We were not allowed to use any sound from the original trailer. I recorded my boyfriend, Shea Walsh, for the voiceover and also had him roll a can across the floor for a foley effect. The can roll occurs just before the jets fly overhead. It was a subtle sound, but if it wasn't there, you would notice it considering that it's the main focus of that shot. The final project was submitted in both 5.1 surround and in stereo on a DVD. Here's a stereo mix of it.
Sound For Picture:
Our Midterm project was to use a deleted scene from the movie Cold Mountain and turn it into a cohesive scene with fully functional audio. We were instructed to use hard effects pulled from libraries as well as our own Foley effects. We were also required to use Automatic Dialogue Replacement (ADR) for at least one line of dialogue. For the Music & Effects (M&E) mix, we were instructed to drop all dialogue to create a mix that could be reused for foreign language versions.
Here's the full mix:
Here's the M&E mix:
Our final project was to re-make a trailer using the video from an original movie or video game trailer and create our own audio to use instead of the original audio files. We were instructed to make at least two Foley effects to use in the trailer. I had my boyfriend, Shea Walsh, do the voiceover, which I tuned down a few octaves to get the deep announcer voice. I also had him do the Foley effects while I recorded them, which consisted of jumping and sliding. I kept one piece of the original audio for effect at the end because I couldn't find a better static fuzzout. Otherwise, the music, effects, and voiceovers were all added by me.
