For the mastering stage I decided to use outboard for a more analogue sounding track.

This clip was used in  created for my Masters degree sound class.  I was given the prologue to the film Persona and had to create my own soundtrack using sound effects, music and virtual instruments.  The clip was then mixed in a stereo format using a variety of dynamic and time domain effects.  

The soundtrack was created using Pro Tools 10.

Total Recall Trailer- Post Production Clip

Let the Right One in - Post Production Clip

This trailer was part of my HND Post-Production module at Forth Valley College. I had to record / source all sound fx and manipulate them to match the visuals on screen. I also had to write the entire music sequence used in this trailer. Other tasks included were ADR, editing, mixing and mastering with final delivery being in Stereo. The software used was Pro Tools 10.

This clip was used for multiple assessments in my HND year at Forth Valley College. I had to develop a sound map showing all the sound I would require in order to complete this clip. Surround sound microphone techniques were used for different elements of this clip such as the ambiance and truck drive by. The original clip was in Swedish and had to be translated in order for my group to complete the ADR work. Recording foley was a huge part in this clip with only a couple of creative commons sound effects being used. The music used is not written or owned by me and was used for educational purposes only. Once all elements had been recorded, each member of my group created their own automated 5.1 surround sound mix of this clip.  This was created using Pro Tools 10 and down mixed to stereo using Logic Pro X.

Standing up for Freedom - Post Production Clip

This clip was my first post-production assessment given to me in my HNC year at Forth Valley College. Like the other post-production clips I had to source al SFX and score the music for the entire clip. As well as spotting in effects to match the visuals, you also had to make the sound flow and merge so each element together so no obvious gaps in the audio were apparent. I created this using editing techniques on pro tools such as fades and automation. This project was completed using Pro Tools 8.
