I really loved doing this project. I am not normally one to start projects on time, but for this one I immediately when home and started recording.
For this project I decided to do a reading of one of my favorite books, Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. I wanted to create a sense of being in this particular scene. I also wanted to use more then just my voice for the characters. I ended up getting a couple of friends to play the voices of the other two characters. I feeling like the background noises also help to create the scene and make the listener feel like they are right there with the characters.
I Had a really fun time with this project. It took a lot more time than I thought it would, and I wish I had taken more time on it. One of the biggest things I learned from this project is that room size and sound proofing really affect the quality of the recordings. I found that when I recorded other people in a different room it gave their voices a far away feel to it.
If I could go back and do this project again I would try to find a more sound proof room to do the recordings in. I would also try to change my voice to indicate better when the main character is speaking out loud or in his head.
I loved this project and would love to continue with this type of work.
