We asked everyone out there to vote for the best candidate of the SoundCloud and Vancouver Film School’s Full Scholarship Challenge, and based on the eligible votes received, we now have a winner! Yay!
Let’s give a big congratulations to Gordon McGladdery! Hear how Gordon felt about winning below:
Here’s his winning submission as well, the sound of “An Imaginary Animal Being Born”:
All ten finalists were great, but Gordon’s submission was chosen by you as the best. Gordon will now be joining Vancouver Film School’s Sound Design for Visual Media program.
We’re challenging you to bust out your thinking caps and get experimental with…sound! So how would you capture the birth of an idea in the form of sound? Or the sound of falling in love? Or even better, the sound of a post-apocalyptic landscape?
We’ve teamed up with Vancouver Film School (VFS) to get the gears in your brain turning, your record buttons ready, and encourage all of you SoundClouders to capture a sound that’s never been heard before. We’re excited and so is VFS, check out a special recording from Shane Rees, VFS’s Head of Sound Design for Visual Media here:
The SoundClouders who are successful in capturing a sound that’s never been heard before will have a chance to win a full tuition scholarship to VFS’s Sound Design for Visual Media program. Cool deal, huh? Now, down to business:
Capture at least one of the below topics in the form of sound, in whichever way you like – and with as much creativity as you can:
• The colour red
• The birth of an idea
• An imaginary animal being born
• Falling in love
• A post-apocalyptic landscape
Enter on the contest page here for a chance to win a scholarship. When entering make sure to write (in the sound’s description) who you are, why sound is a passion for you, what equipment/software/techniques you used to create your submission and what makes you so sure this program is what you want to do. More details on the contest here.
Alright, sound good? Ready, set, go be the first to record a sound that’s never been heard!
