Assignment was to record all different types of sound (natural, industrial, ambient, close up,etc) and then mix and edit them using Pro Tools.
Foley and Midi
Using items that we brought to class, such as fruit, vegetables, and cooking utensils, my classmates and I recorded over 100 foley sounds together. Using these and midi sounds made using the instrunment plug-ins in Pro Tools, the assignment was to make sounds for an animation. I used a foley recording of a stapler remover for the mouse running, a shoe rubbing against a wet floor for the mouse squeaking as it falls, celery for the egg cracking, and a plastic bag for the wings flapping. All the other sounds and music were made using a midi keyboard.
This is a work in progress as I plan to clean up the animation and add full color.
Final Project
For my final project in Sound Design for Animators, I had a choice of either making sounds for a project in another class or making an entirely new video to make sounds for. I chose to make sounds for my Character Animation final. I was required to have some dialogue to edit using tools such as the de-esser, compressor/limiter, and the expander/gate in Pro Tools to eliminate unwanted background noise, fix any high pitched noises, and to make the voice recording smoother. Other requirements were to include foley and midi sounds.
