Once again let’s get a challenge rollin’! This month’s challenge is creating an animation with sound. Sound is veeeeerrrrrry important in not just anime but videos in general. No matter how good your animation is, if it has terrible or unrealistic sound, the entire quality will not be good. (Use episode 7 of Keep Your Hands Off Eikouzen as to why sound is important.)
By sound I do not just mean effects. I mean music too. Music help create the atmosphere or the mood of the animation. You wouldn’t have a happy, bubblely song with a gore scene.
Vocal work is also very important too. It helps us connect with the characters. Bad voice acting can be detrimental to a show. (I’m not talking about dub versus sub. Take a look at Neko Sugar Girls for an example) This one may be the hardest one as the vocals has to match the expression of the character. An episode of Shirobako showed that character acting and voice acting go hand and hand.
So for this month’s challenge I want you guys to create an animation with sound effects like walking on grass, creating an animation with music to create a feeling or mood, or do some character acting with vocal work. Can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!
