Blastwave FX announced a new sound design competition.
Do you think you have what it takes to scare the hell out of someone in 30 seconds or less using only sound? Here’s your chance to prove it, and win SONOPEDIA 2.0! But beware, the judges aren’t easily scared… Alan Howarth (Sound Designer / Composer on films such as Halloween, Poltergeist and Gremlins), Matt Busch (Star Wars and Hollywood Is Dead Artist), and Ric Viers (Author of The Sound Effects Bible and CEO of Blastwave FX) will all be judging your work – with the lights off!
Here’s the scoop: Blastwave FX will provide you with a gaggle of sound effects (some horrifying and some sinfully simple). The rest is up to you and your evil imagination. There is only one rule: You can only use sound effects from Blastwave FX in your cauldron. If you own Blastwave FX libraries, you are allowed to use those sounds as well. If you think your piece needs a little voice-over help, feel free to grab a mic and do your best Vincent Price, if you dare.
That’s it. Blastwave FX supplies the treats, you supply the tricks.
