I was a part of a program called Startup Weekend in Jacksonville, Florida. Basically, you come on Friday and pitch a product that Friday that gets voted on by the community present. The top 15 get to create a group, come up with a business plan, validate the market, and have 54 hours to come up with an entire business model and pitch it to judges.

This is a one minute speech I ended up doing that we were originally going to use as part of our 5 minute presentation. We didn't end up using it.

I figured I'd upload it here as a fun example as something I did with sound design that I hadn't anticipated. I showed up at the weekend with my microphones hoping that there was somebody I could do sound effects or music for and I was able to put this together for the group that I ended up with. Something about the rendering added a couple pops that weren't originally there, and a couple of the smaller ones were the result of me not using a pop filter with the compressor mic.

My only regret was that they all forced me to do it. I have a voice like a tuba with a sinus infection, but since I was 17 and they all thought I still had something of a "kid voice" they pushed it on me thinking it would win more empathy.

Anyways, here's the clip: https://soundcloud.com/dakota-potts/nerdular-audio-presentation

For those interested, we did win second in the competition and get to move on to pitching to investors at this point.
