Nickelback Pro Tools Edits

These videos were shot on my iPhone then placed into Pro Tools and time aligned with the reference audio of the actual concert and CD audio for a more audible experience. Due to them being shot differently, and being too big of a file to place on here for viewing, I have placed a link to go to and watch in HD on my Vimeo site.  Please enjoy!

NEW POLITICS PRO TOOLS EDITS

protools-logo.jpg

These videos below were shot on a flip cam with really poor audio while at a live concert in London. The drum parts you will be watching for time, will be a little off.  This is due to a different drummer on the album.  I did this project so I could have audible audio with these videos.  I imported the video into Pro Tools and dubbed over the audio.  *Keep in mind, there will be a few anomalies that won't line up exactly. The purpose of this was to make it more audible. This is just a small taste of what I can do with Pro Tools.*

"cras" post production

Post Production includes tasks such as the editing of raw footage to cut scenes, insert transition effects, working with voice and sound actors, and dubbing, to name a few of the many pre-production tasks. Post-production is the third and final step in film creation. It follows the pre-production and production phases.

radio spots

Through this, I, and two other members of my class created three radio spots. A 15 second, 30 second, and a 60 second spot for the Rolling Stone/IMAX Theater.

[All tracks and sound effects were recorded and edited in Pro Tools. Pro Tools is a (DAW) or a Digital Audio Workstation designed to be the industry standard for tracking and editing in the recording industry.]

 tv commercial

I, and two other members of my class created a 30 second TV Commercial as a continuation of our Post Production class. This is what we are calling the "Snickers - Kiss" commercial.  Please forgive the video quality.  I believe it was like this when we started editing.  Hope you enjoy.

Pirates of the Caribbean movie trailer

10th Cycle Project

Just like the 30 sec. commercial above, we also got to edit a 1 minute clip of a movie trailer.  This process was a little more in-depth.  As well as recording an orchestra for the soundtrack, we also were in charge of the Foley (Sound Effects), and ADR (Automatic Dialogue Replacement).  We were responsible for everything that contained audio in this clip.  During the class after everything was recorded, as homework, each one of us had to mix down the segments of the trailer.  We mixed the Foley, ADR, and Sound Effects then voted on who had the best mix overall.  After the vote came in I am proud to say that I won the Foley mix down, ADR mix down, and Sound Effects mix down.  After all was said and done, my final product was voted the best overall.  Yes this was my first ever movie trailer and experience doing such work, but given that, I think it came out extremely well!  I am proud for what I did at that point in my life.  I hope you think so too.
