Shaun Farley has just published the details for the fourth sound design challenge. Let’s get to work!
This is a short video. And after you’ve downloaded it, you’ll see that it’s a timelapse. So how do you think I’m going to challenge you on this one?
If you guessed that I will say, “No whooshes, swishes or the like…then congratulations, you guessed correctly.” Honestly, though, there’s not a ton of movement that would lend itself to that in the video anyways. So, in a way I’m not making things any more difficult…maybe? Anyway, if you’re looking for inspiration, this thread on SocialSoundDesign.com ain’t a bad place to start.
That’s it for rules this month. Anything and everything else you can think of to throw at this thing is wide open. You have ten days to finish and post your audio composition with the video to our Vimeo group (that’s Sunday, the 28th at 5PM U.S. Eastern Standard Time). As usual, the countdown timer in the right hand column of the webpage will help you keep track of how much time you have left.
For a prize this month, I’ll be offering up a pack of sounds that I recorded while I was out in San Francisco. A small collection of switches, knobs and a few other mechanical devices I recorded on a WWII Submarine (the U.S.S. Pampanito). Colin Hart’s got a post talking about it up on his website, and you can expect me to put up my own sometime this weekend, with a couple of the sounds to listen to.
