Fall term is finished, which means that I put the finishing touches on my Audio Production project. I worked on this project all term as we learned about sound, microphones, recording, and ProTools.
For this project, we were given about 30 movie clips to chose from. I chose this scene from “Oz Great and Powerful” for two reasons — first because I knew my friend Jim would do an awesome job doing the voice over for Oz, and second, because I loved all the bird noises in the background.
In all, I recorded about 85% of these sounds. My goal had been 100% but honestly, recording can take a lot of time! Hearing it come together, and especially at the end when I began to run all the sounds through the equalizers and hearing how they became richer and more engaging, was exciting. It was also a lot of fun seeing and hearing it being played on the theater on campus.
