Andy Martin, sound designer and field recordist

CREATIVITY: DESIGNED SERENDIPITY

Statement:
Sound is an integral factor in creating an emotional connection in storytelling, yet its invisibility often leaves it overlooked and left to fill the role of “don’t be bad enough to be noticed”. Gaming potential has moved into a realm of emotional engagement and creative expression previously occupied only by movies. They have the potential to grow far beyond, but only if we learn to flex all of our creative storytelling and engagement muscles.

Also, recording and making sounds is a heck of a lot of fun!

Goals:

  • To tell stories with sound
  • To produce high quality, memorable and iconic sound design for video games and film
  • To play with sound
  • To have fun exploring something new
  • To break things and point microphones at them
  • To do this with a group of people that enjoy creating as much as I do
