Sound Effects

An important part of making the movies I'm doing is the sound. Whether it is just a sound effect (foley work) or an actual sound track, getting original music and background is sometimes difficult and often expensive. If you can create your own it's the best of both worlds. Having quite a bit of musical training in my past, I've been tempted to gather up the supplies and begin scoring my own work. There's a lot that goes into that, however. It's not just a matter of picking up a new guitar, or a keyboard. You need a quality system that includes amplifiers, microphones, and the best recording equipment.


I've gotten really heavy into animation lately. I didn't really mean to. I bought a program thinking I'd do some story boards or maybe make some logos with it. I've done all that but have also really gotten into just the fun of animation. I'm also thinking about going the animation route with some of my stories instead of live action. It's cheaper and I can work on my own time rather than worrying about actors and such.
