This is the Wilhelm scream of movie trailers. I was commissioned to put this little piece together for a talk that composer Mark Petrie gave recently. He wanted to highlight the ubiquitous BRAAAM sound that was popularized by the trailer for Inception and has since gone on to appear in dozens of trailers. It started out as a two-minute piece, but we had to whittle it down to around 30 seconds.
Capcom hired Mediajuice to edit and remix three great trailers for Umbrella Corps into a single epic trailer. This was the result. It was going to be shown in toy stores, so it had to be rated E. Making a trailer for a first-person zombie-slaying competitive shooter isn’t easy when you have to keep it kid-friendly. Still, I think it turned out great.
