For my Audition rough draft, I was kind of making a PSA on sharing the road with cyclist. I was hoping to bring some humor to a very scary and real danger associated with cycling. Close passes are very dangers for both cyclists and communters.
I was hoping to get a lot of sounds that are normal for cycling but I had a hard time recording vehicles passing by me while riding my bike in a safe manner, so I couldn’t get that sounds yet. I guess I will have to settle for standing on a street corner and getting the sound that way…
I used some video PSAs for inspiration that I ahd found on youtube, like this one in the following link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MUL8l9_65Ic and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIm4C84IrYw
As for the humor, I tried to bring in a very GCN (Global Cycling Network) vibe, which can be seen here, in this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1G7WyLurNw
I created this draft by recording sounds from different segments of a bike ride, once while climbing a little bit and the other at the top, which I am shifting furiously to prepare for the descent.
After that, I recorded the voice over in four sections. I did this so that I wouldn’t have to breathe into the mic I was using. Then I combined the two ambient noise tracks and the 4 voice over tracks and created this PSA.
Please, check it out and let me know what you think!
