Guidance on how to complete Grading criteria 2 for Sound for interactive media
I made a list of sounds using an SFX spotting sheet. The teacher gave me a microphone to record sounds outside and inside the college where there are environmental sounds such as buses, cars, motorcycles, footsteps, taxis, lorries, paper tear, plastic, and people walking. I recorded all of these sounds then I downloaded my recordings to the Logic Pro 9. I have created and recorded my own sounds for the film-9, this will work with the various video scenes. The sound must match the video animation because it will match the action on screen.
I have been planning from start to finish of this assignment. I created a planning schedules which has dates, task, deadlines and completion date.
I needed to create my own music, which I played myself in Logic Pro for the Website, Gym and Sci-Fi indents because I was using all my own ideas. If you want to use someone elses music you will need to ask permission and use a copyright agreement form. It is not a good idea to use someone elses music, as there may be copyright issues. Loops mean specific sound for music, which is repeated. I am using loops from Logic Pro because they are copyright free.
I have created five Earcons. I used sounds from the library in Logic Pro. I used only piano and created specific sounds for a Mobile Phone. I created Alarm, Phone Message Alert, Ringtone, New Voicemail and Sent Mail. For all of these I used the ‘Bounce’ for Earcons. I created five more Earcons for Interactive products such as, Computer, Apps for Mobile, I-pad, Website, Gym and Sci-Fi ident as well. For all of these I used Logic Pro, where I created these sounds.
I tried to listern to some sounds from the Logic-Pro library such as, pop, piano, afro-beats, ballad, rock, dance, beat and hip-hop. I needed to created all of these sounds for website, video for gym and Sci-Fi. I saved my file then I uploaded for AIFF-C audio, my sounds are clear.
I have created music for my Indents opening title sequence. I created afro-beats because my idea development is a Tarzan Sci-Fi. This matches the video appropriately. I used the ‘bounce’ for the music I created for my Indents.
I have created music for video gym. I created Hip-Hop and Dance because it can make you more movement like when you’re running and exercising. This matches the video scenes. I used the “bounce’ for the music I created for Final Cut Pro
I have created music for website for Gym promotional video. I created some Dance music. I used the “bounce” for the music I created for website authoring from Dreamweaver.
