Basically in this project we want to make a short Hollywood-style trailer, to make a trailer only with audio and make it epic.
So in this project, we tell a story about a girl, who is the king of her people. And it’s her destiny to protect a relic in her species, the seed of Aya. However, the enemy attacked her city and killed her people, one of which is her beloved grandpa. So she decided to revenge, and she killed a lot of people. But eventually she was lost in her endless killing, and she found out that there was no difference between herself and her enemies — endless killing people, no matter what the reason might be. So she walked into the forest and met a fairy, who gave her the answer, “everything is born with sins”, and then she decided to kill the dragon which is composed of devil inside people’s heart, to end this world of fighting and killing.
So all the sound in this small trailer came from three kinds of sources. First, the recording from the Tascam. For example, we use our finger to imitate clatter of a horse’s hoofs; we use the tissue to imitate the sound of wind; we use knife to imitate the sound of battle.
And the second source is the background music from Two Steps from Hell. And the third source is from the open source of all kinds of audio, like the sound of the battlecry, or the sound of dog.
And we cut two background music to 2 minutes and connect them. Then we began to add elements to it. The process is quite fun because sometimes it did sound like a Hollywood trailer!
1.We are still not very good at using Audacity to change the effect of the sound clips, and sometimes we don’t get what we want.
2.It’s quite difficult to speak like a Hollywood actor, and the people’s sound sometimes doesn’t fit the background.
