Like some people use special whistles to attract birds, your task is to create an 30 second or less audio file that might be used to “call” a particular character from a movie, tv, or real life. It cannot feature voices, but sounds only (try freesounds). Write a description why this sound would be attractive to the character, why it would be effective (be inventive, write a story about it). My first example was calling Dr Oliver because he would not respond to me otherwise
