The next assignment that I did was called Cheesy Radio Ad For Your school worth 3.5 stars. This assignment I also did with Chelsea where we used our characters to do the ad. I like how it turned out. It was not difficult to come up with what to say but the editing took longer than it should have. Our ad is to get people to attend Mary Washington.
The assignment I did last was Your Theme Song worth 4 stars about my character. What I chose was dramatic type sounds that I felt fit the image that I could see as being Caleb. I hope you like it.
Another assignment that I chose to do was Emotions Through Sound worth 3 stars about my character. What is going in the audio that is playing is that Caleb has came to a house that he heard noise at so when he walks in he sees someone laying on the ground with class all around and a phone off the hook. Will he is trying to pick up the class there is sirens in the background. The emotions are strong in this short section of audio.
The first assignment that I completed was to make a creepy song. This was a really fun assignment to complete actually. It is called Spooky Sounds and is worth 4 stars. All I used to create this assignment was music and sounds that I found in mixcraft. I hope y’all like it and find it as interesting as I do.
The last assignment I chose to do was Sound Scapes worth 4 and a half stars. This was a lot of fun so I may of done more than asked haha. The assignment was to make a song only using found sounds. I had a lot of fun with this so here are my few songs that I made.
The second assignment that I did was the Make your own ringtone worth 1 and a half stars. This ringtone is more of a preview for a full song but that’s what ringtones usually are, a clip of the begging of a song. It was fun to make though. The only things I used were the instruments that I found in Mixcraft.
The Sound Effects Story which is worth 3.5 stars was rather difficult but fun. Our task was to make a story about our noir character with using only sound effects. The story that I told was Caleb’s life at the end of a work day. All the sounds I used were found on my mixcraft software. To start off you will hear him typing on the computer. He is getting the last bit of work done before he could leave. The next thing is the town bells. He hates the traditions of his little town so be shuts the window when they start to chime. Then his phone rings but sense he will be off any minute now he turns it off and does not answer it. Due to the fact he does work at the police station there is police cars driving around outside and he then walks down the stairs. Of course he lights a cigarette and gets in the car to go home. When he reaches the house he goes in and makes himself some scotch, lights another cigarette and checks the computer. After he finished off the bottle he brushes his teeth and heads to bed. Not a very eventful night for sheriff Caleb but at least he made it to his own bed tonight.
Let me just tell you how frustrating this bumper was to make. But nun the less I liked this assignment. I spent so long trying to make it better and interesting but still be the appropriate length. I do think I like what the outcome was. For my bumper I used parts of the Phantom of the Opera overture and many different sound affects that I thought would be interesting. I hope you like it.
