I can never find the sound effects that I want! I decided to try out the assignment, Sounds Effects, which "is a short and simple assignment.

This assignment is to upload your own sound or sound effect to freesound, preferably something which is lacking."Well, there are a lot of sounds missing from…

♪ Having Netflix problems I feel bad for you sonI got ninety nine channels and 80's ain't one ♪Melody-Z Man I hate listening to commercials! Whenever I hear one, I immediately change the channel (or change the station). But for the project, Make Your Own Radio Commercial! I had to do what I hate and make a commercial! I had originally set out doing a different commercial assignment, namely the Fictional Radio Ad one, but my commercial didn't fit the assignment description. Nor did it fit Kollin's 80’S Product Radio Commercial assignment. I wasn't creating a commercial for an 80's…

THRILLER NIGHT AT THE MOVIES

Ahahahahahahahaha.M.J. Melody Something evil's lurking from the dark in this Sound Effects Story! In this Audio Assignment, we had to "tell a story using nothing but sound effects. There can be no verbal communication, only sound effects. Use at least five different sounds that you find online. The story can be no longer than 90 seconds."This assignment was challenging to say the least! How do you tell a story with only sounds?
