There’s an interesting game called They Came from Hollywood being developed by two independent game developers. The premise is that you’re a large B-movie type monster like Godzilla, a giant spider, or a humongous robot. It’s not out yet, but the interesting thing is that they’re soliciting people just like you to send in MP3’d screams.
# One scream only, please. PLEASE do not send us screams from movies or CDs. We want YOUR screams, and we need to know that there are no ownership issues in using your sound. To let us know it’s you and not someone else’s edited sound, we need you to say “TCFH” on your recording before you scream. Do it as one recording, and be sure to leave us room to make a good edit cut between your sound and the TCFH tag (a second should be fine). Your sound file should be wav or mp3 format, no larger than 500k. Screams can’t be returned — once submitted, all screams become the sole property of Octopus Motor. While we plan to include credits for screams, we reserve the right to edit or omit credits. No monetary compensation will be paid for the scream and the rights you have granted. Just screams or yells, please…no growls, beeps, monster noises or other sound effects.
# Words and phrases are fine (as in “Look at that THING!”), but no obscenities or languages other than English, please (these screams will be used for the US cities).
I have to do this. If I use a phrase, what should it be?
Some initial ideas:
WHAT THE???! AGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!
OH MY FREAKIN GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHD!
AHHHHHH! LETS GET OUT OF HERE!
Maybe I should just scream.
