Layered sounds

Lord of the rings

We had a quick jump into the effects, music and grouping of the sound in one of Lord of the Rings movie. The layer option for sound arrangement creates a huge space able to work with, if it is used correctly it can create a new dimension, but if you are not the best at it it is kind of scary that you overuse sounds and layers and just create a mess. I hope me and my team can sort it out in the project…

There Will Be Blood

My partners decided to work on the movie “There Will be Blood” because I had the idea of the Clip for the Major Project and it was their ‘time”. At first, I was not very happy, I remembered just a bit of the movie and didn’t make me much sense.

When I re watched the movie with analytic and critic ears and also when I read about it, I discovered how deep was the meaning behind the sound; sometimes as audience we don’t identify and understand the “movie”, I can say, in the past my lack of knowledge and interest in the sound made me understand less the point and feelings of the movie. From now on, I am thankful to Sound Design lecture to have changed the way I experience a movie (media in general).

We all are used to watch The Simpsons with a certain sound style, and when it changes (even when they decide to add a musical) we audience, fans, leave it as a “special”

Well, going back to sound I just wanted to point out that I enjoyed watching and being able to critically hear this episode and appreciate the sound design in it, who would have said?

Notes:

The plain flat world… no reverb, dry sound, clear

Transition …Reverb in voice , gets louder as it goes

3D black hole, windy, reverb max, large space, sfxs

Real world TV sound like space
