Shinji’s Confession

I did this 4 star assignment using this soundboard. Shinji is a character from Neon Genesis Evangelion, and his english voice actor is regarded as one of the most whiny sounding individuals yet. picked this assignment because I had the soundboard at the ready, it would knock out my remaining stars for the week, and I feel pretty good about using Audacity. I read through the sound byte options and felt that either a conversation in the afterlife or an interrogation room would work the best. Lots of self-hatred and panic.

I first wrote out a script, so I could record the bytes in the correct order and organize more efficiently. Then, I used my headphones to record Shinji, and I got pretty okay sound quality this way. I then recorded myself saying my own lines, and I edited them together. I added some sound effects during his arrest in order to make it more clear what was going on. Screen Shot 2015-02-05 at 5.46.36 PM
