Assignment title Unit 73 IG1 – GTA 5 Cut Sequence Audio Production
The purpose of this assignment is to:
Learning Outcome 1 – Understand the use of sound and music in games.
Learning Outcome 3 – Be able to create sound assets for a computer game following industry practice.
Scenario
Sound is an essential part of the computer game experience. Forming 50% of our sensory experience, and good game soundtrack
can enhance our pleasure of a computer game and help bridge the ever decreasing gap between games and more traditional
forms of storytelling such as films.
You have been commissioned by Rockstar North to produce the audio soundtracks for cut sequences that will be used in a
planned mission expansion pack due for release in 2014.
Modern computer games such as Grand Theft Auto 5 feature complex narrative cut sequences which help to drive the game’s
story forward. As the quality of computer games have advanced, so too has the quality and complexity of the audio produced for
these products.
This assignment will introduce you to audio production and post-production technologies so that you will be able to produce
technically competent and professional sound assets that will used in the planned GTA 5 mission expansion pack.
You will produce voice recordings and sound assets using portable audio recording hardware, studio based production hardware
and post-production computer software using VST instruments and effects. This newly acquired audio production knowledge will
equip you with the skills needed to produce a two minute soundtrack for a new GTA 5 computer game cut sequence.
This assignment will do the following:
 Introduce portable audio field recording technology.
 Require the use audio field recording techniques to capture sound assets.
 Introduce studio dialogue recording technologies and techniques.
 Require the use studio recording technologies to produce clear voice recordings.
 Introduce audio post production software and editing techniques.
