Sound drives stories in many ways. In my opinion, it can be the most important part of a movie. The sounds people listen to can invoke various feelings in the listener of a audio story or the watcher of a movie. You can watch a scene in a movie where somebody is walking slowly around there house. Depending on the audio, the person watching could feel a sense of anxiety, or a sense of glee. I found this out first hand when doing some of the weekly assignments. I put dramatic sounds behind gunfire and it created a sense of urgency and adventure. without the music, it just sounded like gunfire, nothing special. It really can change the feeling of the whole scene.
My favorite movie, Saving Private Ryan, gave me the perfect opportunity to recreate a short movie only using sounds. I decided to use the Omaha Beach Scene!! Enjoy!
This assignment was a lot of fun. It was cool to see how easy it is to distort voices.
This was my list of things that I had to take pictures of. I did not expect to get so excited doing this activity but I did.
I was only able to capture 4 images but this was one of my favorite activities to date!
Inspired by my previous assignment, I decided to make a self portrait out of shapes. I really liked this approach, as it was very simple but still looked good.
Here is a picture of a Dog I drew. Im no artist but I was pretty pleased with how this turned out
Here is a picture of a vintage microwave that a cleaned up. (I think its from the 80’s!) This would make great clip art.
