Five-Minute Film Festival: 8 Interactive Video Tools for Engaging Learners It's no secret that I am a passionate advocate for using video in the classroom. When used well, videos can help students make connections to people and ideas beyond their usual frame of reference.

The defining one is what sounds up front and tells the listener what the sound is, especially if combined with picture. The impact one can be anything at all, designed only to pump up the sound to hyper-real. For defining sounds, simply record what things really are: For a face slap for example, record a real slap, hand clap, slap on thigh, etc. For a body kick, record a fist on chest thud, etc. For impact sounds, anything goes. Other purely impact sounds: kick drum, fist-pound on closet door (tapered), car door slam (tapered), kicked or stick-hit cardboard box, leather belt snap, whip crack, etc. In my opinion, especially what I’m loosely calling the “impact” component can and often should be gain-maximized and mixed with the “defining” so that the defining is still the part that gives the information as to what the sound is. - Clint Bajakian

Edmodo – Where learning happens. | The free and safe social learning platform for education V Motion Project – Part I: The Instrument | Custom Logic Web Blog Overview The Motion Project was a collaboration between a lot of clever creative people working together to create a machine that turns motion into music. The client for the project, Frucor (makers of V energy drink), together with their agency Colenso BBDO, kitted-out a warehouse space for this project to grow in and gathered together a group of talented people from a number of creative fields. Producer Joel Little (Kids of 88, Goodnight Nurse) created the music, musician/tech wiz James Hayday broke the track down and wrestled it into Ableton, and Paul Sanderson of Fugitive built the tech to control the music with the help of Mike Delucchi. I also helped with the music side of the tech and built the visuals software with motion graphics warlocks Matt von Trott and Jonny Kofoed of Assembly. Assembly also produced and directed the music video. The Instrument Unfortunately, this control and flexibility comes at a price… the system has a significant lag. Two Hearts Beat as One Up next..
