Happy New Year, Everyone!
Let's start 2022 off with a new video for @thetearsees! It took a while to complete, but the video is now done, and I can share with you our sound design monster, The Nightmare Box!

https://youtu.be/rcfhK1VJ_gE
As a big fan of the Apprehension Engine for horror film sound design, I wanted create something similar for @thetearsees to create the alien soundscape of the universe. At less than a 1/10th the cost of the actual Apprehension Engine, our Nightmare Box does a great job creating sounds that make the hair on the back of my neck stand up.
Paired with my Behringer Neutron's the low drone, the box provides The Tear's world with an endless canvas of eerie sounds and experimentation, perfect for a world as chaotic and nightmarish as The Tear.
The noise box was hand made by my wife and I. Each step is detailed with text on the screen.

Some of the final Tear Crowdfund VFX shots are nearing completion.  Here we get to see Earth in relation to The Tear.  Keep in mind the cosmic god is a few billion miles away.  All these effects are home grown.  I'm sticking to these wide shot animations.  Once we get the short film rolling I'll be working with a skilled animator / VFX artist to complete the more ambitious shots.

Going to record the wild lines and start shooting the remaining b-roll.  If you're interested in cosmic horror and want to see the short and other stories take shape, consider subscribing or share this post.

During the Covid 19 pandemic I learned some visual effects while locked away so that we could continue to move the project forward.  It took months, but like the rest of us, I had some time on my hands.  Time to start telling stories.

Hello and welcome to The Tear! 
The Tear Poster

The Tear began as a short film - delayed due to COVID - and has grown into a much bigger idea that we would like to expand on here at Subscribe Star.  As we continue to push forward with the short film, we will be producing and sharing with you original music, tales and art from that process.

We will also expand the universe with the additional stories and related material first here and on Hive.
