Aswell as the visual side of the intro, I began recoring sounds using a rifle mic for the atmospheric sounds of the beach. I find the sound of the waves crashing on the sand and rocks extremely refreshing and awe-inspiring. It is also something I think someone in an office might appreciate, being trapped in a dingy office all day. I think sound would be a very worthwhile on the naturalistic side of the project. Here is a rough example of the kind of sound I mean.
It would also be good to have a sound effect for the graphic arrows as they move accross the screen. I am sampling various things at the moment from metal to pipes, but I feel something with a very soft ringing resonance would fit quite well, or possibly a swooshing sound.
By taking a small section of this sound and adding filters/distortion I should be able to get the sound for the arrows.
