Some work for a potential project- any interest?

Final Title Sequence

I can't remember if I posted this, but here is a little project that I did in Flash. It is a title sequence for my life. I still need to clean up the pacing, but I thought I'd just get this up here to remind myself where I came from on this project. The whole process for this piece was nice- illustrations, animatics, and this, which is actually more of an enhanced animatic, but if I had more time I would fix up little movements here and there.

Notes on Sound from Film Art Reading

- elusiveness accounts for part of the power of sound effect
- strong effects yet unnoticeable

sound effects:
speech, music, noise
pitch: high and low of sound vibrations

rhythm: the beat pulse, tempo or pace (includes speech)
Timbre: the colour or tone quality f sound

sound mixing: used to guide the viewers attention
ex. ping pong game

dialogue overlap masks edit

external diegetic sound: sound outside of the character
internal diegetic sound: only from the mind of character (music or dialogue)
