After much play of trying to get the correct sound effects to fit in with my video, I was very disappointing to find that i was unable to find most sounds needed. I came across little sites which allow you to download the correct file type to be applied to a Windows movie. Once I applied a couple of sounds into place, I did not enjoy the outcome as it sounded as if the video was unfinished and rather unprofessional. Due to this I removed the few sounds I was able to find. Even though this is the case, I am still extremely happy with the Final piece as it was made over a couple of days and still works very well. I believe it shows the aim of my product/system quite effectively and gives the viewer a sense of fun.
Here is my first attempt at adding sound effects to my video. As my main piece of feedback was aimed at the lack of sound, I had to give it a go. I knew Sound would enhance the final piece even more as there’s nothing worse than watching a video with no sound. This is just a quick snippet of the use of water splashes which I personally think works rather well. I will now go on and attempt to apply more sound effects although I am finding it difficult to find the correct sounds needed.
Here are a few pieces of new technology which I was introduced to by Steve Gill. I found these extremely interesting as they are all projects which don’t contain screens or buttons but still function fantastically, whether as a system or just a piece of art.
Today we were given our brief; TO CREATE A NEW ART/DESIGN CONCEPT (AT SKETCH LEVEL ONLY) FROM RECYCLED MATERIALS, BASED ON RECENT LECTURES. These are a selection of images I believe show our given brief at its best. Most products shown portray a great sense of Fun and creativity from the designer.
After being advised how company offices are becoming more involved with their playful sides, I came across this fantastic image which shows a variety of very well known companies worldwide. Having several jobs throughout my life, the most exciting of offices I have been near was that which had a free hot chocolate machine; not that i’m complaining.
