The formula is revealed at last.
Wow, that was amazing, I am totally going to use this method next month in one of my upcoming short Films!
Thanks for sharing
@jabarrett That was really good. Did you have a hand in Auralnauts or run up across this on You Tube? Either way good job! It really seems like a Hollywood trailer.
Nice share! Guess I'll have to up my game now.
@tddavis I found it via a friend's post on Facebook.
Ha, that was cool, so many movie trailers do this... I guess if it works why break it. I need a dam good BRAWWW sound... they are cool.
@Andy001z Andrew Kramer has some amazing trailer hits and slams and booms, etc. in his motionpulse sound design kit! It is $149 on his site, but it is worth it since it has all kinds of professional sounds, 2,000 sound effects!
@HIS_films Andrews stuff is always good, and that is pretty good value. Shame the piggy bank is empty.
So now you just need someone to subvert it (which I'm sure has already happened). A <Doink!> instead of a Bwaaaa, some meaningless statements or someone reading a shopping list, loud annoying marching band music played at double speed and shots out of focus, or obscured by someone's thumb over the lens.
@Palacono haha. I might try this with my Family holiday film that I do annually (this time I got VFX shots planned and filmed).
Works for current trailers. The idea could be expanded to trailers by decade.
This is happy tour for me to read on you post. Follow you guide, I think we are able to master this skill. Thank you.
Does anybody know where I can find the piano sound effect that is in the trailer? (The first sound effect in the trailer) I searched, but nothing like it
@HIS_Films I haven't sat at the piano in ages. I'm pretty sure that a "G" above middle "C". I'm trying to record a little bit for you and I'll edit with links if it sounds decent.
Edit: Had to redo it because I didn't realize my phone would pick up the fans running in the next room. I did a little extra just playing for mood. I ran it though izotrope sound cleaner but I still wish I had a better recording set up. Basically, it's just holding down the sustain pedal and hitting G above middle C, then in the extra bit a G adding a G# in quick succession followed by a G /Gflat then a G again.
@tddavis Thank you so much for taking your time in doing this for me! I will look at it as soon as I get a chance, probably tonight, but I got to go I just saw it, sorry, but thanks you! I will let you know tonight!
@tddavis I think that is going to work! I might change it a little, but It came out very good! Thank you some much for helping me out, once again
@HIS_Films Absolutely no problem. But I was so unhappy with the sound of that one I redid it again using a shotgun mic and a camera. Then I cleaned it and I tweaked it in a sound editing program. I think I like this better.
But it's up to you which you like best.
Edit: Oh, and feel free to change them up any way you need/want to. I'm sure you can make them better.
The hardest thing to get right for me is the classic reworked music, this is bassicly a custom job and worked very well. It is why teaming up with someone who can work music magic is a good idea..
@tddavis yea this last one is better, thanks!
Surely you ('re not) suggesting that my pitiful little thing even approached music magic I haven't sat at piano in years so I know I'm rough to say the least.
@His_Films Glad you liked the 2nd one. Hope it helps and works for you.
@tddavis your music melody will have to wait until I am sat infront of my home computer, I am sure it will be most pleasing to the ears.
@Andy001z Oh, if you haven't listened already there's really no bother. It's just a succession of G for trailer mood. No composition or melody to it.
that was awesome! DEFINITELY putting that in mind for my next short film!
Same here @FXGONBI actually working on mine right now!
@HIS_Films Thought I'd play with trying to make a couple of those creepy, sad covers or non-copyright music, and discovered it fits perfectly with my skills at piano playing! Here's a couple in case you like them.
@tddavis the wheels so came of that bus!!!
@Andy001z I know, right. Those sound so weird in that style, but since I was never the best at keeping time it's my jam now! I can feel like Liberace now. And see below, I got what you mentioned you were looking for.
@HIS_Films Just for good measure, I went looking for Bwhaa sounds. Turns out it's a foghorn variation without the two step sound. Found these. All are copyright free and one even had creative common license stating it was public domain (included)
@tddavis your Hickory Dickory is a horror movie trailer waiting to happen...
@tddavis WOW! thank you so much! I was struggling to find something like that, The trailer to come out the end of the week, I will check those out in a little, and I will let you know, but thanks for checking for me!
