Trimming the GTH Trailer

Today I get to recreate the Ghost of Thornton Hall trailer…but shorter! When we first launched GTH in the Apple App Store, they only allowed screenshots — no video. Since then, they have allowed video and we need to get that trailer up in the app store! However, the challenge is to shrink it down to 30 seconds. That’s tricky, since there are so many great parts to that trailer. (It’s my favorite trailer, too!) I’m not done with it yet, but I thought I’d share a picture of what part of my working screen looks like…

In case you were curious, here’s the PC/Mac trailer here:

As for the weekend puzzle, I apologize for the insanely large picture. I don’t know how it escaped me, but I fixed it now. The solution is this: it’s semaphore flag code. Once translated, it reads “Actor is Bob.” What do you suppose this means?

We have a birthday to celebrate!

    I agree. GTH Trailer is definitely the best one. The actor, Bob, he played Dwayne Powers, Ralph from STFD and Joseph Hughes and Sgt. Mac Ramsey from FIN.

      Also, Bob is sometimes a nickname for “Robert”, like the VA who does Joe Hardy. My guess is they’re going to interview him next for the podcast???

      • Huw Miller says:

        Although, LJ said that the voice actor started with STFD, and Joe didn’t come in until a later game. Bob Heath started in STFD. I hope they interview the voice of Joe in the future though!

    I’d like to think the new voice-actor for Nancy Drew isn’t named Bob… So… perhaps a new phone contact..?

    Then again this may have nothing at all to do with MID so I don’t know!

    (The GTH trailer is my favorite as well~ :D)

    are we going have to get a new computer for 33. midnight in salem

    • Little Jackalope says:

      Hi Susan, it’s unlikely you will need a new computer for the next game. But stay on top of your current computer updates, just to be ready in case there are better updates. 😉

    Does it have to do with a podcast, or MID?

    Hey Little Jackalope, on the stream you said that you probably gonna make a post about Warnings at Waverly Academy, some facts about it and etc. Is it gonna happen?

    • Little Jackalope says:

      Hi Anastasia! I may just do that, but this week has been super busy. Blog posts have been casual of late, but I will get to it when I have time. 🙂

    Contact Amazon using the link I gave you and they will help you. I spoke to Randy if he sill there. He said he will get someone take you step by step and my address is correct with the dash

    I was wondering if anyone else had the problem of the dialogue not matching up with the timing of the characters’ movements. If so, did you figure out how to fix it?
