the Wading Bird – a Sound Design project

This is one of my two final projects for “Sonic Measures,” a Sound Design course I took this spring with Professor Terry Adkins and Marc Blumthal.
The assignment was to take some video footage which was primarily visual in nature (and natural – not a performance) and to use sound design to enhance the raw footage. In Logic, to enhance the audio already present from the video (which was very distorted,) I used percussion, foley water sounds, and other effects and reverberation to create a soundscape to highlight this bird, stalking prey along the shoreline.

The video footage was taken on my Droid cellphone in Sarasota, Florida.
