...The Sound Of Aliens
Steve makes noises
Late last week a few of the Foiled regulars, and a
new face - Stephen Davis - got together at Gargoyle Studio
in Farnborough to record the sounds
of the aliens. We didn't know exactly what we wanted,
but Steve's voice could do really weird things, so we got a
variety of effects recorded. We tried various "moods"
for different scenes of the movie, like "angry", "surprised",
"scared" and "about-to-explode". The one that had us
laughing the most was "alien chatline" - various attempts at
making the aliens "talk" to each other for the final scenes
where the students are faced with a swarm of the little
I've uploaded one of Steve's chatline efforts as an MP3-encoded
.wav file (if that means anything to you!); you can hear it
by clicking here.
All that's remaining to do now is the music.
