In our fourth video of the series we continue our journey to become a Foley Artist for our story, 'When Stars are Scattered.' Ms. Hanzlik teaches us how to integrate the dynamics and articulations we learned in the previous lesson into our own original soundscape. We also continue to practice using the Mood Meter to infer emotions for our sounds.

Video Five:

Performing and Recording

In this final video of our series, Ms. Hanzlik helps us assemble all of the tools we have identified to make our foley sounds for our story. We will practice performing our sounds along with a read aloud of the story. We will also learn ways that we might also record and share our performance with others.
