Grimoire Of Scrap 1 - Sound Package

Grimoire Of Scrap 1 - Sound Package

I’ve decided that after every year, I will release sounds I’ve done probono to the public in packages.
These will be random sounds, no real category to seperate them.
These sounds can be building blocks to other sounds like whooshes to voices.
They are a part of the Grimoire of Sound wizardry (the sfx library I’m putting together) [...]

Finally, after a long time and through some inspirational push by co-players, the left 4 dead sound package is complete.
Alone, the sounds are very strange.

Sound Design Demo Reel From Metal Gear Solid: Philanthropy

*SPOILER ALERT!* *SPOILER ALERT!*
THIS SOUND DESIGN DEMO REEL CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE METAL GEAR SOLID PHILANTHROPY MOVIE.
Watch the full movie here: http://www.soundwizardry.com/?p=371

I also would like to point out that the sounds are “raw.”

There’s no sound mixing going on for the audio, so all the layers are playing simultaneously. Without some major EQ, compression and audio leveling.

Also, some of these sounds were NOT used in the final mix, I just thought it be more interesting to hear it all and how it was before the mixing magic happened.

I did do some additional sounds, but these are the major ones. All the missing audio (like footsteps and guns) were done by Aaron Frensley.

Keep in mind that this is the BETA footage of the film. There are certain things in it which changed for the release.

It took awhile to finish the demo reel. I am no video editor and thus find it quite difficult and tedious to edit.

This is the demo reel for the sound effects I created for the Metal Gear solid: Philanthropy movie which of course was made by the talented people in Hive Division.

The 8 minute demo reel shows the easiest design to the hardest.
The opening credits happened to be the most challenging sound design I did. It took 2-3 weeks just to collect over 300 sounds and to then process them and use. I recorded fires, machines, elevators, doors, television and radio broadcasts, did sound effects with my voice and processed them. All sorts of crazy sounds.

Praetorian (I hope I spelled that right) Aka Metal Gear, had 8 different layers of machine creaks and groans and proved to be quite difficult.

The director wanted the MG to sound wounded, scared but dangerous.
When it moved, it should sound like you knew it was around.

I used my dogs voice, my own, Lucien Dodge’s voice, walrus, tigers, lions.
Everything I could think of for it to sound irritated, scared and dangerous.
I also used a foghorn distorted as a “Here I am!” sound.
One thing we were told was to not make it sound like the striders in Half Life 2 but more how the japanese do their robots. (IT’S GODZILLA!! I’m not implying the zilla is a robot.)

One thing you will notice is the original take with the oil rather than the steam.
I liked the sound for the oil, which was me playing with mud, rather than the steam sound.

All in all, it was crazy fun to sound design for the movie. Here is for hoping for a sequel!
