A COLLABORATIVE POST WITH INTRODUCTION BY IAN HOWARD
ASSISTANT EDITOR, BOOM BOX POST
Every round of interns that join us here at Boom Box Post are put up to the challenge to get out of the studio and go out to do filed recording. We give them specific sounds we are looking for and also task them to use their creativity to find and record something they think could be cool to capture. This week, we will here what our intern Peter was able to record.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO CHOOSE THE LOCATIONS YOU RECORDED AT?
I wanted to record walla and ambience at the mall in Glendale originally but couldn’t because it was crowded and busy. I didn’t have enough time so I ended up going into an alley and record the ambience there.
WHICH WAS THE MOST CHALLENGING sound TO RECORD AND WHY?
Tire grit sounds were the most challenging because there was a lot of extraneous sounds.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE SOUND RECORDED AND WHY?
I liked the tire grit sounds. It came out pretty clear and I think it will be useful in adding detail to car scenes.
