As another part of my Final Project, I decided to give Patrick a second try at cheering Spongebob up (not being allowed to go to work is horrifically depressing for the best fry cook of all time).
So to do this, I used the Onomatopoeias! Audio Assignment, and it was completed in the same way the Uninteresting Story was, which also happens to be the same way I approach most Audio Assignments. I got a clip of a bunch of Patrick jokes on Youtube. I downloaded it to my computer using my ‘Keep It!’ Keepvid.com button on my toolbar, and saved it as an mp4. Then, I imported it into MPEG Streamclip, which I only used to Export the Audio from the file.
Then, I hopped into Audacity and imported that sound file, along with the Small Group Laughter clip I used with Uninteresting Story. I clipped off the rest of the 4 minutes of audio or so from the original joke reel to leave behind just the one joke I wanted to work with, and zoomed in until it was able to be clipped. I then found a Tada Trumpet sound effect on freesound to try to help introduce the joke, which I had to lower the volume of quite a bit to make it fit. Then, I layered the small group laugh on top of Spongebob’s laugh to help make it sound canned and cheesy, which again, is my goal here. Finally, since Spongebob’s laugh is the ultimate sound I was going for here, I amplified it a bit, copied it, and echoed it.
Sounds like Patrick was a bit more successful this time around. What do you think?
