Before talking about the future, I’ll introduce my knowledge of audio editing first. By no means am I even close to or have ever been an expert in producing or audio engineering. Although, I do know a little about it. I have previously mentioned that in high school, I studied Media and Arts, and in the courses I took, created tons of projects. Two of my favorite projects dealt with audio editing, where I either had to edit a song to fit a video, or create my own song from scratch with the instrumental elements of Garageband. For the first project, I had to utilize a rap song for a funny video that my friends and I recorded; in which one of them was hit in the back of the head by a crumpled dollar bill flying through the air in slow motion. With regard to the other project, I had to take various sounds from the pre-loaded instruments on Garageband to be used as the background music on an extremely convoluted assignment, which included audio editing, video recording and editing, etc. After having learned these skills, I can sadly say that I don’t use much of them anymore, with the exception of video editing and some audio editing for mundane social media content.
Knowing that I like to edit audio for fun now, I can see myself in the future continuing to make funny or, simply, amusing videos of my friends and family; just for the heck of it. Maybe, I would be able to learn more techniques, by taking classes, and become certified to make more professional videos, with edited audio, for people in my social network. Being that I aim to go to graduate school for Psychology and Cognitive Science, I do not see any use for audio editing in my academics or career.
