SOUND FX Film Fest

Our current project is a mobile sound FX studio.  To make this project work we need YOUR help collecting diverse 30 second clips. 

On Thursday Feb. 15th we're going to hold a 30 Second Sound FX Film Fest.   Bring us an approximately 30 second public domain video clip.*  Weblinks are preferred but we can make disc media work too.  

*Creative Commons is fine too but if you want to use something from a copy-written movie or show you'll need to “swede” the clip  

We'll show these clips and make our own sounds effects for them as a test so feel free to bring something that might work as a “noisemaker”    

This event is free and open to all, feel free to invite your friends. 

Urban Artworks is located in the Inscape Arts Building (815 Seattle Blvd S) which is a controlled access building.  Dial 009 at the front callbox anytime after 6:20pm and someone will escort you in. 

 

If you're looking for public domain or creative commons licensed media here are a few places to start.
