Yesterday we posted a story about the importance of audio in your stories. One problem that people often encounter is that they know they want to put in some ambient environment sounds or sound effects and either forgot to record it themselves, or can't find rights free material on the web. Enter World Wide Sound Effects!

World Wide Sound Effects is one person traveling around the world capturing interesting sounds and environments and wants you to use them in your work for free. Sounds from a marketplace, to a highway, washing machines, helicopters and much, much more.

When you are putting a video together the audio tracks are an essential piece to building the world of your video. Sounds surround your viewer and help transport them away from their screen and into the world of your video. So it is very important to make sure that you take this part of your video seriously. Ideally, you would have recorded ambient sound or any effects you want to you when you are on location or out in the field, but sometimes it doesn't come out right, or you just forget. You can always search the web but you never know what you are going to find, and what you can use for free.

Maybe scary stories drive ratings… or maybe they don’t.

Time and time again the the question I am asked by people who want to make compelling videos with their smartphone is: “What do I do about audio?” The answer is pretty straightforward.
