As with the graphic design work I did, these college-level projects are indeed legit. I say this to lower the expectations of what you may think is top-notch editing or storytelling work. Oh well, we all start from somewhere!

Audio Storytelling Samples
Ever remember those weird sound effects, voices and music from old Looney Tunes cartoons? Well, I took a handful of those sounds (out of hundreds, yes the library is full of them) and made this humorous envisioning of cartoon slapstick from a normal situation having gone wrong.
Oftentimes, what makes a scene in any work of film, TV or video game resonate with the viewers is the soundtrack, that of which is made of up an original score and/or borrowed elements mixed together to create a theme or mood piece. Speaking of which, here’s the visual hint below of what I chose to represent.
Radio commercials employ just voiceover, music and sound effects to evoke a story or message across, leaving it to the listener to envision the setting. Here’s my amateurish take. For the script, click on the image below.
Oddly enough, these weren’t drawn for the purposes of animation. The storytelling element wasn’t even for a course taught in that area. But hey, creativity!
