Progress Update, and an Interview with Sound Designer: Quentin Dorsey
This past month some really great progress has been made. I think as a team we are really starting to hit our stride, and its showing in the amount of work we have gotten done in just the last month. In fact, towards the end of next month it looks like Concept Design/Environment Paintings and the game Animation will be completed.
Below is our progress report as to how much of “Lilly Looking Through” is completed.
Game/Puzzle Design - 100%
Music - 98%
Art/Concept Design/Environment Paintings - 97%
Animation - 94%
Sound Effects/Foley - 72%
Programming/Wiring Game Logic - 60%
Interview with Quentin Dorsey
This month we interviewed Quentin Dorsey, who is helping out with Sound Design on Lilly Looking Through. As we were looking at our production schedule, we realized if we found somebody to help with sound design for the last portion of Lilly, then Jessica could focus completely on animation. Quentin records most of his own sounds in the field, and he is always carrying around his portable recorder with him looking/listening for unique recording opportunities.
He was also nice enough to answer a few of our questions.
Q: What is your name and what kind of work do you do on Lilly Looking Through?
A: My name Is Quentin Dorsey and I am working on Sound Design for Lilly Looking Through.
Q: How did you get involved in working on Lilly Looking Through?
A: I heard from a friend at church that Geeta Games needed some additional help with sound design. I got the contact info, sent my work and they said yes!
Q: What sound project in the past did you have the best time working on and why?
A: I was able to work on the TV Special called “Fields of Valor.” This show was a civil war special that required a ton of sound design and I was able to put in a great deal of work.
Q: What has been the hardest sound to try and record or get recorded?
A: My most difficult sound to record has been water indoors. Trying to make big water sounds indoors is a little challenging.
Q: Is there any advice you can give someone interested in a career in sound design?
A: I would recommend software like protools, cubase, sonar, and others for audio editing. A field recorder is also something you will want, so you can record sounds that can’t be recorded at home.
Q: What are 2 of your favorite games and why?
A: Batman and Tekken 6 because I can fight without real injury.
Q: What is the last desert you ate?
A: Burger King Apple Pie.
That’s the end of this month’s update. Thank you guys for all your continued support, comments, and words of encouragement. It means a lot to us and we really appreciate it!
Steve, Jessica, and the rest of the Geeta Games Team!
