Dark Souls II Opening Cinematic (Redub)
CREATING AN ATMOSPHERE
This clip was a really interesting one to tackle. It gave me a chance to really push my non-diegetic sound design with its surreal, nightmareish presentation. It also lent itself to some very dramatic contrasts.
I found that I really enjoyed working with tiny, subtle sounds to create an atmosphere out of stillness. The interior scene was a perfect chance to do this, and I'm pleased with the result.
The Dragons of Drangleic
This was also my first time trying to create mythical creature sounds, and I did so by combining several animals. For my dragons, I used a blend of pig, tiger, lizard, and hawk.
