Natural Sound

 Basket ball players signaling each other as they pass the ball; two students talking and pointing as they search the web on a classroom computer; scientists communicating via radio as they ready a weather balloon for launching.

 Insert and link to a typical nat. so. clip from Microburst Alert footage w/ narration audio, no music

Then add and "mix" in Premiere w/ narration. You need to follow the edit plan below pretty closely. Suggest you screen this sequence as editing on the edited program to get the flow. See tape DVE A at 01:22:26, though I've very slightly modified the sequence in the plan below.

 Video

Audio

Tape DVE B (voice over tape)

00:08:21-00:08:29

IN ORDER TO GIVE THEIR CLOUD MODELS A BASIS IN REALITY, THE WISCONSIN RESEARCHERS NEEDED REALWORLD ATMOSPHERIC DATA

Field tape 4

 04:22:12-04:22:14 (medium shot of balloon inflation)

04:23:09-04:23:11 (tight shot on pressure valve)

Have ambience (hiss of gas) full up, then fade under the start of the narration (beginning on DVE B/00:08:21 see left column).

Cut on video to:

04:20:35-04:20:41 (tilt down from sky should cover all this piece of voiceover)

00:08:31-00:08:39

BACK IN FLORIDA, IN THE VICINITY OF ORLANDO AIRPORT, A WEATHER BALLOON IS LAUNCHED TO PROBE THE SUMMER MORNING ATMOSPHERE

Open up voice over track again and insert following video with audio up full:

Field tape 5

05:02:04-05:02:07 (inside the NSSL van, scientist talking through radio saying "7,6, 5, 4"

Cut (or soft cut?) to:

Field tape 4

04:26:48-04:26:53 (other scientist w/ radio hear first scientist coming across on audio saying ".3, 2, 1, launch away!")

Bring in voice over in the left column

Continue video through "Orlando Aiport", but fade scientist's audio under the voice over.

On the word cue "Orlando.." dissolve video to

 04:27:35 and continue shot (balloon floating upwards) to approx. 04:27:30 should cover remainder of voiceover.

Cut on video and audio to scientist with portable radio (outdoors) on close up at

04:28:42

 and fade up his audio: he says "I've lost it in the clouds."

Insert screen capture of construction window for all above, then embed fully compiled movie corresponding to the construction window.

These types of sounds are intimately bound up with the scene being videotaped. As distinct from narration, which is typically recorded after videotaping, these sounds are "natural" they are recorded simultaneously with the action, even though it might be directed.
