Digital Production Final


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Well, since I posted my final last semester, I thought I'd post my final for this semester as well. The assignment was to create a one minute piece of music to compliment a storyline using a sound effect every fifteen seconds to tell the story. Here's my story:

Scene one: Violet stands in the rain waiting for her lover
Scene two: Violet ducks under an awning and desperately dials her lover
Scene three: Violet pounds on her lover's door in anguish
scene four: Devastated at being abandoned, Violet crashes her car
End: A ring falls out of Violet's hand and rolls across the dark pavement

I used both Logic and Protools on this piece.

Well done...
The music is perfectly poignant. The effects are well chosen to underscore the implied story. The ability to compress an entire tale into a fragment of time is an art. Well done, an A from me.
ttfn,

Love...
how many cars have been crashed due to this emotion?
more than we know I suspect. I think you're on to something here....
great production work. The music was a great compliment to this. I know you already submitted this but changing the pitch higher on the ring spinning away might have been more convincing at that point.

So why did she feel abandoned? Was she stood up? Did he just have a flat tire and ran over his cell phone with his own car? Or is he a pinhead?

Cool piece. The music seem to duck out in volume at 00:32 and I'm not really sure why. In fact the whole track volume does. Nice story, liked hearing about the process and problem to solve. Thx!

I lowered the volume of the music track because the knocking effect was up all the way and still not loud enough. I should probably go back and fix it. I noticed that the volume change was too noticeable but I got lazy and said eff it. Thanks for noticing though. I think I WILL go back and fix it.

I think the music does a great job of setting the mood for this piece. The piano is mysterious and foreboding - you just know something bad is going to happen.

I like the chord progression too btw - could be a cool song. Hope you get an "A" - I think you deserve it. Enjoyed this - thanks!

Awesome
Do you remember those "Choose your own ending" books? I'd sit up for hours every night, picking a different scenario each time. This reminds me of them. You gave us only so much information, leaving the rest up to our imagination.

What happened to Violet's lover? Was he in an accident, did he purposely ignore her call? Was he even home? Why was Violet waiting in the rain? Were they having a secret affair?

All of these unanswered questions intrigues the listener. Great assignment, and you delivered it wonderfully. A+ from me!

And...
The music you've created was beautifully haunting, perfect for that scenario.

Outstanding
Great stuff Natalie. The production on all those different sound effects is spot on and really charaterises each sound. I love the arty audio imagery of it all - really appeals to my art school background! A nice touch of something different here. You're up there with the best of the production/mix experts here. Superb work. I think it's fair to say you've aced this semester!

Hi...Nat
This is short but not all stories are long ones, this is very creative
and to the point you should have gotten high marks for this.....
The Mix and production seems to be way above par, the details are
clear and to the point......

Well done....

Cool idea...
...for a musical scene. I think you nailed the story perfectly. Wow. I can SEE this, too, as a short-short video. Very clever and very well done. A+ I'd say, since you covered all the elements of the rubric! Nice going.

Beautiful song done with a guitar solo that sounds ok, but the phone and mix well cry shame that is too short, and eventually fell a penny metal haa. Hello from Italy.
