I was able to collect some great sounds from Macclesfield Forest the other day. These include:
- The stream
- Breaking of wood during the montage scenes in the forest
- Sound of object falling which can be used for depict a variety of on-screen objects which fall to the ground.
- Natural forest ambiance which includes the sounds of birds singing and trees swaying in the breeze. I think this will work well during scenes set in the forest.
The equipment used for this recording session was an Edirol R44 digital recorder, a Rode NT4 microphone and an ADK condenser microphone. Foam shields were left on the mics to guard against wind noise.
