Sound Design ideas

In the current development of the PROMISE project for mental health awareness, the animation is set in the plains of Africa. There are two parts that needs consideration, that is the soundtrack and the sound effects of animals and the environment. I am currently in collaboration with a sound designer and through discussion have established some ideas.

Here are some reference tracks:

(opening scene, peaceful, calm)

(manic phase)

(depression phase, layering of wind instruments)

 

As for sound effects, I will need to consider these elements:

African Animals:

  • zebras
  • birds
  • elephants
  • Gazelles
  • herds moving across the plain

Environment:

  • River sounds
  • Hooves, herds
  • Wind
  • Tree rustling
