Greg Smith Sound Effects Collection Presentation & Reception

Greg Smith has over 25 years of experience making films, and has traveled the world extensively as a location sound recordist, among other roles. While working on set for major studios such as Lucasfilm, he eventually amassed a large private library of sound effects, which he later used as part of his thesis project as an MFA student at AU.

The Greg Smith Sound Effects Collection is derived from the highlights of this thesis project, and includes unique sound effects of wildlife, vehicles, ambiences, and a wide variety of other things that go “bump” in both the day and night.

In providing this collection to the University Library, Smith has requested that his sound effects be shared openly for the benefit of filmmakers and video and audio producers around the world.
