(cross posted from 106tricks.net just because I am so excited about tonight’s ds106 in class activity)
Students formed 5 groups, and each group was charged with creating sound effects for a specified 30 second segment of Charlie Chaplin’s In the Lion’s Cage. They could use any props in the room or their own body. I played the video back with the sound muted, and asked the groups to perform the effects live.
The video above was edited to overlay the audio I recorded. They did pretty damn good for only have 15 minutes to plan their sounds.
My only small disappointment was a lack of a Willhelm Scream.
My thanks for Scott Lockman with whom a skype conversation the other night generated the idea for this activity.
