VIDEO PROJECT (due Mon. May 1)

Turn your sound story or ear movie into a video in which the audio is accompanied by a slideshow of still photos or art (original or found online) that illustrate or enrich the work without undermining its integrity as an audio narrative. Consider visual pans, zooms, and transitions. Post your video below.

EAR MOVIE (due Mon. April 17)

 Ear movie. 5 - 10 minutes. The story unfolds via dialogue and sound effects (w. very little narration). Again, in the previous podcast the sound effects simply illustrated the narrated story; here, the sound effects are meant to propel the story. You must use opening music, closing music, one sting, one bridge, one sound effect bed, one musical bed, and at least five discrete sound effects (of those five, you have to record three yourself from real life). Post MP3 below (along with a photo or illustration that best represents it).

LIONS & TIGERS & BEARS, OH MY! (due April 10)

King Kong's bellow was supposedly a mix of tiger growl and lion roar played backwards, the Rancor in Return of the Jedi was a slowed-down chihuahua, and Chewbacca was a stew of badger, bear, and walrus. Mix together at least three sounds (animal or otherwise) to create the shriek/roar/yawp or indecipherable language of a made-up monster/species. Consider slowing the sounds down or playing them backwards. Post MP3 below.
