Movie Dialogue mashup

This next assignment is a movie dialogue mash up.  The purpose of this assignment is to use two selected movies of choice and extract the dialogues scenes of actors form each, then re-edit them to create a story as if the characters from different movies were in the same conversation.

The two movies that I choose were;

Her (2013)                                       The Matrix (1999)

The concept of this assignment was great!  However, it was very tedious and I spent quite some time trying to find the two movies to use for this.  Originally I wanted to use the movie “300” and “kick ass”.  As these were my favorite movies and it would seem like a great idea to work with movies that I have seen numerous times already and remembered the dialogue very well.  But even those two didn’t work out very good as many scenes did not match what I was looking for.

This is the dialogue between the two movies;

Matrix: “This is the construct”

Matrix:  “We can load anything from clothing to equipment.

Matrix: “Anything we need.”

Her: “We who?”

Matrix: “Is it really so hard to believe?”

Her: “Where are you going?”

Matrix: “To the world as it was at the end of the 20th century.”

Her: “What’s going on?”

Matrix: “Your hair has changed, your appearance now is what we call a residual self image, it is a mental projection of your digital self.”

I used audacity to work on the editing for these two clips, as I am very familiar with the it and find it easier to use than adobe audition.  I personally think audition is more complex then audacity.  The amount of editing that can be done of audition greatly exceeds audacity, but audacity is simpler.

These videos helped me with my editing:

  1. This sound like an actual conversation from a movie. I like how the speed of the conversation stays the same so that it seemed in sync. The content of the conversation shows how the guy from “Her” was so confused and lost with what was going on. I would say that the ambient sound in the background gave away when the transitions were coming in. I think you should have taken away some space in between the clips.

  2. Great project. I thought it was impressive that you found dialogue that fit together. I couldn’t have done a better job myself. The voice from the movie “Her” had the perfect tone for morpheus from the matrix. He sounded lost and confused which is exactly how Neo sounded in the matrix. They complimented one another. I thought you did a cool job with putting the project together. The levels for both audio excerpts sounded similar, not to high or low. It was balanced.
