Bad Service on the Death Star

This is the movie voice machines assignment worth 2 1/2 points.

I had a ton of fun with this. I knew it was an assignment I wanted to work on right away when I read the description, but I wasn’t sure what character to try and tackle. I quickly realized that finding uniform sound clips to fit into a coherent, specific message would be difficult for the circumstances, so I went a different route. After playing around with Audacity’s various tools and effects, I realized that a simple combination of lowered pitch and added echo creates a rather convincing Darth Vader effect. Naturally, I went the humor route and had fun doing so. It’s a silly sort of thing, but I think it’s at least worth a chuckle. The Imperial March theme music is just icing on the cake.
