HELP! THERE’S A FROG EMERGENCY!

For this assignment I had to record a 911 phone call. There weren’t really any stipulations aside from having two different voices. I didn’t really have anyone handy at the time I was creating this so I decided to play with audacity and change the pitch of my own voice …

Police Call – Stolen Car!

911, what’s your emergency?

For this assignment, we had to create a 911 call and we were also for the week required to do 5 stars of assignments involving our characters so I decided to do a 911 call from Agnus. It was about a car accident that happened outside her house just …

HELP!

Not the song by The Beatles, but a short skit I created. In this skit, a young girl is fearful of her consequences and what her mother will do when she finds out, thus she calls 911. I completed this skit by recording two different voices (myself and a friend) …

An Emergency with Spooksy

When I heard the voice of Spooksy and learned a little bit about his backstory, I thought he was hilarious. When I saw host-host interaction, I knew I had to use Spooksy as one of them. I had also had my eye on this particular audio assignment for quite some …

911 Emergency Call

Spooky Lives Matter (AudioAssignments1839 4.5 Stars)

Spooksy returns from the toilet to find his child has escaped the rotisserie, and he calls 911 for help.  I liked the idea of spooky being more than just a guy, I wanted a super natural element, and in playing around with Audacity I found an effect that reversed voices, …
