I am a University student in the UK and I was hoping that you may be able to give me some guidance on my final year project.
The main aim is: To demonstrate whether using low budget studio equipment can produce the same emotional affect during gameplay/theatrical trailer as using expensive industry standard professional kit.
I will be recording sound for a racing game trailer but am finding it difficult to plan some of the recordings.
I have read many articles on how to record cars and suitable microphones and techniques. One of the main problems is that I don't have access to empty roads or professional racing drivers, does anyone have any suggestions on the best ways to get engine sounds (accelerating and changing gears), tyre spins, car drifts/skids and car pass bys?
Baring in mind I don't have much budget on this and will be renting most of the equipment from University or a shop.
Thanks in advance.
