As continuation to the last post, I shall share the spoiling of all the secrets and behind-the-scenes fun facts with you about the making of the Amateur Sleuth Blog: Halloween Snooping video on our YouTube channel… I should complete this list before moving on to new blog topics, like the secrets of The Deadly Device and hints at the next game.
12. At 2:43 of the video, Stuart’s door is actually unlocked.
13. I used a real hairpin to attempt unlocking the door, but it was in fact too big for the hole.
14. The unlocking sound was a real unlocking sound of the door I recorded separately.
15. The creaking door opening was the real sound of that door. (It really does creak in a spooky way!)
16. From 2:59 – 3:02, Jayme (our artist who also held open the last door) also swung open Stuart’s door while I recorded.
17. Iggy at 3:07 was one of our in-office life-sized stuffed animals. And yes, that was me making him move from behind the chair. 😉 We got him during the making of Legend of the Crystal Skull.
18. It was me turning off an on the light at 3:19
19. At 3:55, the drawing of the creepy tree was done by request. Thanks Tim!
20. The Easter Egg at 4:10 was my glass egg given to me by Megan, our president.
21. At 4:26, the spooky person in the back was Nik, our writer whom you saw earlier leave down the hall and turn out the lights.
22. Nik, our writer holds the camera from 4:28 – 4:46.
23. At 4:47, this is the same Nancy poster found earlier in Megan’s office by the white board.
24. At 4:58, this is our designer’s desk. By request, she actually wrote “Confidential” on the file folder and filled the inside with real notes and sketches from the next game. I was sooo close to showing them to you!
25. From 5:06 – 5:18, this is Josh, one of our artists. He is the original voice of Niko, whom you hear in the audio diaries in The Deadly Device! What’s even cooler, is that Josh sort of looks like the much-younger version of Niko! (I was glad to have this character “come to life” for this video!)
26. In real life, Josh is the quietest walker in the office. We had to re-record him stomping to get the footsteps loud enough.
27. From 5:01 – 5:05 and 5:09 – 5:21, Jayme is holding the camera.
28. Fun fact: Jayme voiced the message recording machine at the end of The Deadly Device.
Whew! That is a lot of fun facts!
Hope you had a great, safe Halloween! I sure did! 😉
