There are many sounds that could make a movie . Especially when it comes down to cartoon movies . Which you have to think of every move the cartoon characters are doing, to make it sound and look realistic. Multimedia sound production is an amazing tool that was brought into the Motion Graphics. That plays with two of your five sense . Your hearing and your site(seeing) , sometime time when there is no sound your mind would pick up name up sound:. And if if was your site (seeing) only your mind would create a picture to match up the sound .
However in my second take on the same sense i taken I took a different approach, I wanted my part to match up almost to everything that was going on in my 30 second sense. Which it was a lot of motion I need to match up . It was very difficult since every second was a motion that need a sound and a perfect match up with the crazy plane and my addition into the story line. Where I gotten all my sound effect was from Soundbible.
However for the second time around i chose to do the same scene i had before. however it was a little difficult since we had to take out the soundtrack music we where using. And add the sound that were messing for from the short film. Every second i had to add a effect to match it up what was going on in the scene. And making it more believeabe to the audience eyes and ears, every second counts when it comes down to sound effect.
All My Sound effect come from Soundbible, which it has many amazing sound effect for almost for the project you might be working with.

Cartoon Noise skid
This clip I recorded using my Zoom H2n recorder on an XY mode. I used the internal microphones and decided to walk through a small airport hanger which had two sets of doors leading to the outside. In all it was a 30 to 50 second trip. You’ll hear the difference in the song while in between the sliding doors and in the middle of the hanger and finally outside. After constant and great success with getting to know Audacity more and more I’m able to put effects in certain spots by increasing and decreasing levels slowly. I used reverb to show the difference in perspectives.

I really thought this project would be easy, for I have mixed things before and created filters and different perspectives of instruments before. I noticed that when I played an original sound back and recorded it over again adding reverb, panning, and volume control, I heard the changes through my headphones. However, once I played back the recording I had just done, those changes in left to right, up to down and near to far were not there. Audacity is really tricky.
Anyhow, I finally realized I have to do more research on achieving the goals I’ve set out for. Anyway, I settled for one straight perspective of me singing a song, which I did originally in my closet with a closed in no bounce or echo sound because of the clothes there to dampen the sound. I’ll put both versions up now so if you’d like to hear the differences. Enjoy.
First is my Perspective of a tunnel with to closed in ends. In other words, you’re stuck in the middle of a tunnel with the sound and it has no way of escaping. … enjoy.

Now the next sound is the exact same song, but in it’s orignal form. No filters or perspective changes. Only the sound of the small closet and you’ll hear the big difference.
