For this project, I found a fable on studentuk.com called “The Owl and the Grasshopper” by Aesop. The sounds I used within this story were found from Freesound.com, SoundBible.com, and Incompetech. Finding the audio was the best part about this project. I found myself scrolling and listening to many different versions of one sound. The hardest part about this project was trying to export the audio, converting file types, and uploading the final piece.
Within this project are many mistakes I wish I could fix. However, from each mistake I learned how to improve my technique. There is one in particular that is still very noticeable. Halfway through, right after I say “oak” the audio sounds like it got cut off. I didn’t catch this until I was completely finished with the project. In order to fix this I would have had to redo a part of my dialogue and backtrack a lot. For a mistake that small and the amount of time I would need to fix it, I decided to let it slide.
Overall, this was an amazing experience. It makes me want to continue doing this type of work. I think it would be fun to read stories and make them come to life with music and sound effects.
