In this section there are some examples of my work with sound design. A word of caution, if you want to try the games you will need to download the unity player.
Sound Design Reel
This is my sound design reel. it is a combination of different snippets of my work.
It showcases my ability to sound design, compose, perform, edit.
I used Wwise, Unreal, Unity, Protools, Logic as well as other Video Editing tools.
All the audio is recorded, composed or performed by me.
La Luna - Sound Design and composition
I chose the adorable animated short "La Luna" as my final project for my sound design class at Foothill College. I edited the video using Final Cut Pro X and incorporated credits for the first time. This is the longest film clip I've ever made and it was definitely the most complicated. That said, I really enjoyed working on this film!
I recorded the dialogue and input that in place of the original dialogue. My voice is used for the Bambino (child).
I recorded sounds I couldn't find in a sound library and made new ones out of lots of other pre-existing sounds. The stars were created with MIDI using the Balinese gamelan bells from Native Instrument's Kontakt 5 plug-in!
The music was arranged and played by me. The introductory song is the Sicilian folk piece "Motivo di Cantastorie" (Theme of the Storyteller), the following piece is the children's song "Stella, Stellina" (Star, Little Star), and the final song is the Sicilian folk song "Serenata Amalfitana."
Uncharted, chase scene
This is a small example of my sound design applied to video game animations. All the sounds and editing were done by me. The audio is mixed/mastered to the high dynamic range pipeline.
This small snippet is significantly more complicated than it looks, there are many pieces that get destroyed by the car, and at least the most significant contributors to the scene need to be highlighted, this was specially hard to foley, and on a tight deadline!
I am specially proud of the steps sounds, I made sure they were material accurate and were audible without being distracting
Howl's Moving Castle - Sound Design
This small video contains of clips from the Hayao Miyazaki film "Howl's Moving Castle". As I have read the Diana Wynne Jones novel that was the basis of the film, I knew that one of the main characters came from Wales. Hence, my Welsh musical influence.
I composed this short piece of background music for a Foothill College sound design project. While the main bulk of the project was done using Final Cut Pro and Pro Tools, I ended up using Logic for composing to keep the music and sound effects separate. This piece used both the Logic MIDI library and Kontakt 5 MIDI libraries for this instrumental.
My musical inspiration came from two traditional Welsh folk songs that I felt would suit the project: "Dacw 'Nghariad" (There's My Love) and "Sosban Fach" (Little Saucepan.)
Le fabeleux destin d'Amélie Poulain - Sound Design
This was my very first film editing and sound design project. My film of choice is the visually stunning and adorable story of "Le fabeleux destin d'Amélie." As it was my first attempt at sound design for film, I chose only scenes without dialogue. The film editing was done in Final Cut Pro X while the audio was edited in Pro Tools 10.
