I'm relatively new to sound design and audio for film but am extremely interested. Lately I've been downloading commercials, video game trailers and movie trailers and just trying to recreate the audio and fill in with my own creations I think are appropriate. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions or techniques/skills you could share with me to help me get started. How can I practice to get better? Or what did you do to get to where you are now?
Wow guys. Thanks alot for the answers. I got many more responses than I imagined I would get. This website has been VERY helpful. I definitely plan on reading all of those books and following everyone's advice really...
Thanks again. Great bunch of folks here.
