Looking for Sound Designers 2013-07-03 19:41:11 Reply

Hello, fellow readers,

I'm currently under production with an original animated series based on elements from the Gears of War video game series. Go to the link to know more about it: http://shadowsquadseries.deviantart.com/

Most of what is created in the project is original: the animation, the orchestration music, the voice actors, and so on. So instead of capturing sound effects from the original games, I'm hoping to find some sound designers here to help me out with that.

What I want from you all is to have the ability to manipulate sound effects that are as close to what's heard from the video games (they will be selected for you, so don't worry about researching them). Of course, this job only does not involve you to copy certain sounds found in the games, but to create other sound effects that will fit with the situations involved in the series. This may include cloth shuffling, war environments, fire crackling and so on (depending what I need when I ask you for some during the animation progress).

I may involve two to three sound designers to help me out with this project, so if you're interested, leave me samples of your work and I will determine whether you're fit for the project or not.

This thread is only for advertising to help find the people I need for my project. This means I won't be working with you yet since the written part has yet to be finished, but I will keep you as a contact if I select you as a sound designer.

If you're up for it, please be sure to read this before you post: http://shadowsquadseries.deviantart.com/journal/Shadow-Squad -Introduction-380808546

Thank you all for taking the time to read this and hope to find some talented sound designers out there!

-Stephanie G., aka MyFantasiWorld

The all important question comes to mind,

Is this a paid gig?

Indeed, that's the most important question. If not, I still think this would be a cool opportunity for someone looking to get into SFX :D

The answer to your question is found in the linked material:
"If the project eventually gets popular, I may be willing to pay for their services, but at the moment, we're starting off from the bottom of the step and working our way upward."

I'd be willing to provide some existing recordings of environment sounds I've recorded over the years- cloth rustles and so on... but I don't know if I could record much more, as the studio time to record good folley sounds is hard to come by... not to mention I already need it to record sounds for another project. XD

Yes, it will be, but because it's not an entirely original series, the pay will be cut in half to respect the copyrights of the Gears of War series. Also, money is not easy to come by. However, I'm still trying to find out how much I should pay you guys and how to send the money. Like I said, this thread is merely advertisement and to help search people while I work on the project and gathering up money to pay you guys for your services. =)

Bottom line is, it's official, but not entirely official.

I could get into it, but it wouldn't help speed up the process of creating the series. In fact, I'll be working on almost a majority of animating the project.

If it comes to the point that I have to look for another sound director to help provide for other sounds, then I'll gladly take it, but for now, give me your samples and we'll see where this takes us.

Right now, this is merely for advertising while I work on the written part of the project. It will help me search others faster than doing it at the last minute. =)

Then you shouldn't do sound design at all.

Have you ever found yourself in a position when you have felt that doing a total mix down on a sound effect is necessary in your 10 years of doing music? I sure havent, and frankly i dont take advice from people who totally saturates their songs with reverb.

OnT: I can do everything from 8-bit crackle to the sounds of armys fighting in the terms of sound designing, let me know if you are interested.
