This is a sample of the beat I have just about finished and have added a few vocals.
There are no real effects because it's always recommended to add towards the very end before mastering.
This is a snippet of the same thing and just added pitch correction so you can see how it will sound.
I have already started making the beat for the video, but I am stripping the silence from the video so I can play different quotes and comments in the song. This is the process I am going through, only with a video file. It's a little harder because I have some static in the microphone so i have to manually tweak just about every single clip that isn't perfect.
I also have to go through and name a few hundred clips so it's more organized and this should take a few days.
I recently discovered an artist that I like - William Kentridge - he works with charcoal in stop motion. The reason I like this artist is because he works the same way I do; he doesn't ever use a storyboard, script or screenplay, he just "goes with the flow" and films.
Of course I had a plan for the project, I am not following any structured plan on editing - I am just working on it as it goes.
I know the final version will be like a previous sound project I did in another class.
The story is the same with the boy getting dressed and all, but I want it faster and more "fun" than it has looked while going through my RAW files.
What I might do that's close to it is this video. But I will set Brandon's voice to the keys on my keyboard and tune it. I am in the process of making a beat for it.
I showed project to the crew for critique, and what im gonna do is probably make my music video within the project of the boy getting dressed. I'll have more to show next week. =]
