Former intern Katie Maynard recently joined the Boom Box Post team here as a sound effects editor. We are all very excited to have her join us and to work on a lot of fun and creative projects with her.
A few weeks ago we introduced our first new Fall intern Peter. This week, our other intern Jen Hawkins will sit down and talk about some of her interests and how she is enjoying her Boom Box internship so far.
A while ago we did a blog post about favorite audio tools our Boom Box editors enjoy and are using lately. New plug-ins, techniques and libraries are coming about all the time so I thought I'd check in with some of them now to see if there are any new tools they could share with us.
A few weeks ago we talked with our intern Katie Maynard about her interest in film, audio, and what she is most excited about for her internship here at Boom Box Post. This week, we'll chat with our other intern Sam Busekrus to learn more about her and what she has enjoyed from the internship so far.
Earlier this week we orchestrated a mini monster-fest, recording an insane amount of monster vocalizations for a new series. We recorded almost everyone in the office performing a variety of sounds , giving direction as to the type of creature each person would be voicing and instructions on the types of sounds we needed. Not only was this a total blast, but it reminded me how powerful our own voices are as a tool for sound design. As a result, these are my top tips for creating and designing great monster vocal material!
This month, I wanted to continue challenging our interns to improve their recording skills and get creative so I devised a recording assignment that would require them to think outside the studio! Each intern selected 2 sound effects from a list of easy to record materials(basic foley props, things around the office) and 2 from a list of harder to record sounds(nature ambience, elevator doors, quiet sounds, etc). Colin and Dilery both did an awesome job, so lets hear about their results!
For this month's Inside Sound Design post I met with Brad Meyer again, to talk more about the exciting vehicle sound effects he creates.. Brad spends a lot of his time designing exciting, signature sound effects for his shows, especially vehicles, using both custom recordings and sound library material. This time we talked about a unique semi-truck vehicle, and it’s exciting transformation sequence.
In this months Inside Sound Design I wanted to give our new interns some unsupervised Field Recording experience. I sent Colin Grant out with a stereo recording rig and instruction to capture a minimum of 3 distinct sound recordings. He did a great job and learned a lot, so let's what he has to share about his adventures.
In this Inside Sound Design I wanted to use our interns to explore an early part of the sound editing process: Field Recording. It’s always a blast to capture sounds in the wild, and we try to do so at every opportunity. I sent Ian Howard out with instructions to research and capture two unique and interesting ambiences.
