“Episode 2: Infection”
This second episode in a four part series gives you an inside look on the creation of the Zombie Apocalypse Sound Effects Library for Blastwave FX. Follow Ric Viers and his team at the Detroit Chop Shop as they explain what it takes to record and design epic sounds for the impending invasion of the undead. Included is an interview with voiceover artist/musician AaronG of AaronGTV.
The Chop Shop crew arms themselves for battle against the zombies! This week, they head out to the middle of nowhere to record guns. Later in the week, the interns and Ric model in a photo shoot for the cover art for the Zombie Apocalypse Sound Effects Library painted by Matt Busch (The Rock Star of Illustration).
“This is a cannon… not a huge cannon but a decent sized fairly portable cannon that makes quite a bang. When you pack it with synthetic black powder, ram a chunk of solid steel down the barrel, light the fuse, run for cover, block your ears and wait… it makes a noise, a loud noise. This is the first of many sessions planned with this cannon over the next few weeks and I plan on recording it in many locations. Next location is high up on a cliff overlooking the river where there is not much but solid rock around. I named it the “Cannon on Call” as I can record it pretty much anytime I would like with just a little advance notice and planning.”
