The sound in Camp Borepatch
Well, it's not quite so simple. #1 Son is taking a class where he has to record sounds that will be used in a short film. He can pick any topic, and he chose James Bond. And so he's been busy recording the sounds of magazines being loaded, slides racked, and bolts worked. We went to the range, where he recorded various guns being shot, one shot at a time and multiple times in a row. We may go back and rent a silenced pistol that they have because that sound would be very James Bond indeed.
Now he's turned to the less, well, gunnie sounds you'd hear in a James Bond flick. The sound of a Martini being shaken, for example, or a car engine rev'ing. He's still looking for some more sounds to record, so if you have any ideas, leave a comment.
We'll see if his project comes off as well as this.
