It's that time of the year again. Ghosts and Zombies beckon, and thanks to developer Global Delight, your haunted, scary Halloween home video could win you a $50 iTunes Gift Card. Game your Video is a great app that can let you create spooky videos to celebrate the spirit of Halloween. It brings you live motion effects, scary audio transformations and haunted video filters to make halloween videos.
The Contest: Global Delight, creators of Game your Video, have announced the Spooktacular Halloween Video Contest, which runs from the 26th October until the 4th November. All you have to do is create a halloween video using Game your Video and share on YouTube with the title “GyV Spooktacular” from within the app with the “Promote on I DID THIS” check marked.
What you need to do:
- Come up with a storyline, vague or detailed, a premise is always helpful.
- A corpse bride is easy, or maybe a victorian gothic clown, vampire, werewolves or both, a pinhead or a she-devil, and how can we forget the zombies. Chose what you may!
- Now apply the haunted flavour. It comes with a preset audio that is pretty spooky with all that howling and wailing and screeching. It also sets a black and white backdrop with a vintage gothic feel.
- Use filters like echo to add a sense of trans existence or jitter to shake it up a bit. These will definitely serve up the frights.
- Whenever the ghost is walking alone, use slow motion and fast forward to slow down his one step and speeding up the next. You will get some really spine-chilling effects.
- You can also add the scary audio filter or upload your own eerie audio from your iPod library.
- Now behold. The creepiest video ever is ready.
The Grand Prize: The most Spooktaclular video will win a $50 iTunes Gift Card.
