I actually completed the sound to this video some time ago, I have been rather busy and neglected this website. Hopefully things should start popping up now.
Below is my final version of the realism sound design of the video clip, I’ll go more in depth about it later but at least its on the site now.
The gunshot at the end of the video was a stylistic choice. Real life doesn’t go in slow motion (the matrix was only a film). So I decided that the sound shouldn’t for the realism video, even if the visuals do.
Would I have done that if I were indeed working on a project? No, but then again I would use a combination of Realism, Surrealism and hyper-realism to create the sound.
Note: The lack of footsteps, sure you could compare realistic footsteps against hyper-realistic and surrealistic ones but we all know what a footstep sounds like… This isn’t a study on creating foley to picture, its a comparison of sound design themes.
Feel free to comment, I would love to know what you think of it… If it sounds real etc.
