Recreate A Short Movie Using Only Sounds: 4 Stars

Take one of your favorite movies or scene from a movie and tell the story using sound effects! There can be no verbal communication, only sound effects! Record your own sounds, use audacity, or use websites that have pre-recorded sounds for you to download to create your audio movie. Post your ‘audio movie’ and share it with the class to see if they can guess what movie you are describing!

First of all I happen to LOVE sharks. I always have and I know it’s weird but it’s my thing. I have even thought about switching schools to be able to become a Marine Biologist. I could probably tell you more shark facts than anything else. But back to my assignment, I again love sharks and one of my favorite movies is Jaws- typical I know.

For this assignment I wanted to use my all time favorite movie. I decided to recreate Jaws using sounds from https://freesound.org/ . I enjoyed this project a lot more than my first one because I played around with Audacity more the night before I made this. I was even able to over lap two of the sounds so that the woman is screaming at the same time the water is splashing and then a different water sound continues after she stops screaming.

Steps:

  1. First I found the sounds I wanted to use on Freesound

2. I then went into Audacity and started moving my sounds around

3. Then I turned my file into a mp3 file

4. Then I exported the file to SoundCloud and uploaded it to my profile

Fun fact:

I’ve been to the Shark Attack Capitol of the World which is…. located here.

    I love Jaws too and i’m glad to find another fan. You did a good job representing the movie and I liked how you layered the separate sounds to create the Jaws theme.

    Great job! I love how dramatic the music build up is. My only bit of advice would be to maybe work on the transitions between the different sounds so the sound flows a bit smoother but thats about it. Really good choice of sounds too.
