Welcome to Day 7 of CS First. Today, you will learn about sound effect design and musiccomposition in movies and games. Then, you will build your own animation or game andadd sound. When you work on the core project for today’s club, you will choose soundeffects that will play when one sprite bounces into other sprites. At the end of today’ssession, you’ll get a chance to customize your project with add-ons.
First, check out these clips about the exciting field of providing sound and music to movies and games.
As you saw in the videos, there are many types of computer science and technology skillsthat go into sound effect design for movies and games. Today’s project will give youa chance to explore how adding different sound effects can change the personality and feelof a character or scene. You can choose to either work on the SoundEffects project you just saw, or to go back to the add-ons page from last session’sMusic Video project and continue to build add-ons for your music video.
