Whilst I was recording my sound image, I faced a handful of obstacles and inconveniences. A lot of parents used this time to catch up with each other and so it was very difficult to solely record the sounds of the game without catching snippets of their conversation. The wind was also a slight issue at some points, and I have had to cut out a few parts of the audio because of this. It was also difficult to catch the high points of the game for recording as everything would happen so quickly, and I unfortunately missed out on recording a couple of the tries. I was, however, able to record the sounds of some tackles and kicks of the ball.
Overall, I do believe that I have captured good sounds of a football game, including the blowing of a whistle, encouragement from the sidelines and a fair amount of shouting from the coaches. I enjoyed editing my audio together and was grateful to this assignment for forcing me to actually attend one of my brother’s football games – especially the last one of the season.
