Jack gripped the jar in one hand and charged after her. If the bank at the edge of the fuente loosened, crumbled in on itself, the Fountain would be lost again. As they raced along the narrow path, the swaying tops of the shallow-rooted pines whipped above them. The strength of the tall thick trees was only an illusion. Hurricane winds could easily topple them.
And if the trees fell, they’d crush anyone standing underneath them.
Being squashed didn’t sound like fun. But on the bright side, at least this time getting lost wasn’t a concern. Thanks to the markers they’d left yesterday, he and Nessa knew exactly where they were going.
We’re new to the Audacity, the sound program we use for our audio recordings, and to sound effects in general. These are our thoughts on the current episode.
Recording. We recorded this segment in three takes, after three practice runs with the microphone off.
Technical. No major technical issues this week.
Comments. We think Tenspot’s voice is a bit chipmunky, and will work on correcting his voice in future installments.
Story changes. Several changes to the written version this week. We eliminated “they” to clarify the subject and discovered a typo. Good grief!
