It’s that time again! It’s time for my weekly review of my work. Without further ado, let’s get started!
First up we have my daily creates. As always, I enjoyed these. Shockingly, I think my favorite was this one. I say “shockingly,” because another one of mine involved one of my favorite characters for this time of year: Beetlejuice! However, as much as I love Halloween and all things creepy, I love the picture in the first one. My last daily create was nostalgic. I used to watch Dexter’s Laboratory all the time when I was younger. My older brother and I would watch it going to school in the mornings.
Next, we have my three audio assignments (they were all 4 stars). For the first one, I had to tell the story of a movie through sound. I chose Mortal Kombat because it’s also very nostalgic for me. This was my first attempt with audacity and I had a very hard time with it. I was not pleased and kind of worked myself into a fit of anger. No worries though. By the time I got to my second audio assignment, I was somewhat a pro. I had a lot of fun with this one and was able to get it to sound exactly how I wanted. It had a kind of creepy, but calming vibe for me. For the last one, I wanted to create a place that reminded me of home. So I created a city with all the noise pollution I could think of! It’s soothing for me.
My radio bumper didn’t turn out like I would have liked it to, but I did enjoy messing with it. I felt like I was an announcer for a radio show. It made a little excited about the project we have coming up! I brainstormed all these themes and I really like what I came up with.
I saved most chilling for last: The audio reflection. This assignment gave me goosebumps. It does indeed highlight how music and sound effect can enhance a story by making a listener feel close to it, but wow. It was something else. I felt chilled to the bone. I had anxiety for the characters and even the lack of noise had an effect. 10/10 story. I really enjoyed it.
Can’t remember if I’ve posted this pic before, but oh well!
