I handled the sound design for the short film "OASIS". In this scene we see characters living in a bunker with simulated nature sounds. The father character closes the bunker hatch and turns off the power. A particular sound to pay attention to is the effect of the power-down when the father pulls the switch. Notice how the artificial crickets decay. I put meticulous detail into this project, and some sounds that exemplify this are: the sound of the light spinning at 0:50; the sound of the curtains; The sound of the father's wedding ring touching the ladder; the sound of the gas mask when the camera enters the father's perspective.
