This is, for all intents and purposes, the first film I have ever made. It was the beginning of the semester, and I was assigned to “tell a story” in the form of a short video for my IMD320 class. I shot for an hour or so, just improvising and giving directions to my friend as the camera recorded. Since I took this approach, I decided not to use any audio from the takes themselves, and proceeded to make the audio track from scratch in Reason 6.5 without the use of any samples (making the perfect ice cream truck sound required quite a bit of work). The editing took an enormous amount of time as a result of this, but the end product was worth the effort.
