I am writing a report on Post Production in which I am studying several sound effect purposes and sound design elements. I am researching the background of sound design in film, and I am doing a comparison of two movies: King Kong 1933 and King Kong 2005. The report is performing an analysis on the sound design elements of the movies and is comparing techniques and technologies used in both films. This way, a clear demonstration of the progress of audio manipulation in the industry through time will be achieved.
With this survey, which I urge you to take, I can collect the data I need for my report. It only takes 5 minutes, and I promise you it’s really fun if you are into movies! Enjoy!

EDIT: This survey has been now closed. A great thank you for all of you who took part.
It’s an early-final stage. So don’t be cruel be honest! This is what the audio-video bounce looks like today. Remember, no panning yet! Will start on that shortly! Oh, and btw, second character ADR is not recorded yet. Looking for actor 🙂
So, I’ve been working on this project for quite some time now, and today I was finalising reverb times, compression and volume. I still need to do some panning for the stereo bounce. This is how it’s like to be stuck in the same 5 seconds for hours!
This is the second assignment for the Audio Post module that I will be doing some foley for. Basically, we have been given a video and we are required to use all of our previous knowledge on how professionals work and our skills on post to “dress” the video with sound. We have only the video and some background music audio files to work with. The rest is up to us. Sounds-effects placement, layering etc, Editing, audio manipulation in general, Mixing volume pan EQ compression etc.
So this is the clip we have been given I hope you are going to enjoy this more than we did when we first saw it. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it provides some excellent opportunities to really use our creativity, but the animation it self in terms of production is not good.
Right, I don’t want to say much, and I definitely don’t want you to form an opinion before you even have a chance to see it for your selves. So, here it is.
P.S. There are let’s say some hidden elements, I’ll call them “easter eggs”, which are hilarious. I do not intend to mention anything to the tutors just yet, maybe after the hand-in date for the assignments. If they knew this ” easter egg” was there I suspect they would never give that video to students anymore. Not that hard to notice btw.
By all means, don’t try to go for the tree and miss the forest here.

We booked the studio, and on Monday we are going to record some foley! This is going to be awesome! We need to record several everyday objects, such as glass break, a bike pedal etc. for the Post Production project and foley can be really fun! I am really looking forward about this!
I will try to shoot a video and upload it as well! Will do my best to keep that promise!
