For my story using sound effects, I chose a kid swinging on a swing and he/she hears the ice cream truck coming, and they just go running. I chose that specific story because that is such a great memory for me as a kid. I lived in a small neighborhood, and whenever the ice cream truck came around, or most of the time, my dad always let my brother and I get ice cream. My ultimate favorite to get was the spongebob ice cream cones! The link to the spongebob ice cream has a very weird video I found, so I hope you guys enyoy that! hahahaha
So, I created this audio with Logic on one of the omputers in the HCC. Audacity seemed way more complicated, so I gave up on it and used something else. In order to get the audio into wordpress though, I had to bounce the file. That took me a minute to figure out. I was strugling hard core since this is my first assignment I’ve done, but a super nice guy knows about Logic and helped me figure this out! YAY! I got all my sounds from freesound.org, and they came out really good. I couldn’t find the very best sounds for some of the parts, but I did my best! This assignment is 4 stars.
This audio assignment was so interesting. Telling a story without words takes a lot of creativity! To complete this project I used the recommend freesound.org website to find some sound effects for my story. I then downloaded them all to my iTunes account. One I completed that I uploaded all my sound effects to garage band. I used garage band because I have had previous experience with it opposed to Audacity, which I looked at, but found it more difficult to use. Then once I inputted all of my sound effects into garage band I trimmed them to fit under the 90 second story limit! Here is my final sound effect story…Guess what my story is, and look and see if you are right at the bottom of my post!!
My story is that a little boy opened a magical door. The door opened to an enchanted forest full of birds chirping and magical creatures living happily. Then the Prince rode his horse in to meet the lost boy and make sure he was safe. Then a fairy flew out to meet them and cast a spell of protection over them because a horrific storm cast by the evil witch was coming straight for them. The fairy waved her wand and protected the whole enchanted forest from the thunder strikes of the witch. The story continues…
