Over the past few weeks or so I've been working on a short animation project titled "Cocodile", by SVA MFA students Harris Wu & Wenting Wu. With a beautiful score crafted by Joe Twist, I was able to craft my sound design using a variety of objects and tools, including twigs, leaves, a battery operated propeller fan thingy, some egg shells, and lots and lots of water foley.
I'll be sure to post an update soon with any screenings coming up, or if the final film eventually gets posted online, but for now feel free to check out their tumblr at the link below!
With the post-production sound industry constantly growing with new forms of media, I often get the chance to work on some new material different from the usual short film that I'm most often used to. When I was asked by Prevention Magazine to edit and mix a 4 minute workout video, I took it as an opportunity to further work on mixing and editing under time restraints, as this video needed to be turned out immediately the following day. After receiving the OMF and picture by 6pm, I immediately went to work, focusing on the mix between dialog and music. The biggest issue in this spot was that one of the lavalier microphones cut out during the shoot, so it became my job to clarify and tweak any audio that was not as audible. See the final result above (may not work on Chrome - try Safari or Firefox).
