Saiph’s 24 Hour Day

Saiph’s 24 hour trip to America.

http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/a-day-in-the-life-of-your-character/

I started this 3 1/2 Star assignment first at http://freesounds.org and searched for sounds that would tell my story without vocals. I downloaded the files and then imported them into Audacity. After a bit of editing I was able to create a sound …

Donnie Rejj: Mind Wipe Flash Back

A Day In The Life Of Your Character

What a process.

So this is the first time I have EVER done anything with audio.

And…

I LOVE IT.

I surprisingly love audio much more than I do visual. Audacity was tough to use but it was MUCH easier than photoshop. Plus I feel like you can tell …
