• If you are finishing your audio project files... GREAT! do that.
    If you need to make up work for the 9 weeks, it is too late!
     
    SO, Just need to cover a few topics to make sure you are set for a quiz this week... also a few cool videos! (provided the school system has unblocked them!)
     
    I was just going to go over this, BUT I will either not be there, or will be wiped out (car trouble) SO FOLLOW the PREZI on AUDIO
     
     

    Take your time and READ the PREZI. Reflect on your project.

     In Word or Google Docs Write what you did to create your AUDIO Project. USE VOCABULARY from the PREZI! 5 points for EACH word used correctly! (Please highlight each word)

     

    Example: (3 paragraphs detailing what you did in each phase: Pre-Production, Production, Post-Production, highlighting key words)

     

       When I began thinking about my audio project I was in the Pre-Production phase. I wanted to make a podcast about a video game I like. I thought my target audience would be other kids my age who also like the game. I thought that this would be easy because all I would need for equipment would be a microphone, a recording device and somewhere quiet to record. I ended up selecting a zoom (which has a bi-polar pick up pattern and is a cardioid microphone), headphones and using an audio recording room. I then chose to use Gargeband for my Audio Editing Software because it made it easy to edit a podcast the way I wanted it. 

       In the Production phase I  recoded myself talking about the topic and collected audio clips and images to enhance the podcast. I had to watch my audio levels while I was recording to make sure the quality of the recording was good. I found images to enhance the look of the podcast and sound effects and added those to my computer. 

       In the Post-Production phase of creating I brought in all my audio clips onto separate tracks. I also added images on the podcast track line. After listening to the recording and clips, I used the playhead to help cut clips then trimmed  un-needed sections. I adjusted individual volume on separate tracks and then used the tracks to fade in or out audio forms. I added a bit of a voice over and some background audio to further enhance and explain the podcast. I also adjusted the panning of each track so it sounded like audio was coming from a variety of places. When I was finished I adjusted the master level for the whole podcast so that it would not over-modulate and distort the louder volume. I wanted to export the file in the best file format for my teacher it needed to be not too small, nor too large, this process is called optimization. I selected an AAC file because it will support images in addition to audio, and be big enough for clarity, but not too large so that it will take a long time to download.
