From Youtuber to Hollywood – Interview with Chris Clements

The first time I heard of Chris Clements was when my brother forwarded me “Star Wars SC38 Reimagined”, a wonderful video which reinvigorated the somewhat dated Visual Effects in the original Star Wars. The quality of the work was impressive, from the stunt to the effects.

We’ve been doing some interviews with various artists on our new Craters Youtube Channel,  and I figured this was a great time to get to know a bit more about Chris and the work he does. He told me about his start on Youtube creating fun VFX sketches and shorts. His Youtube channel was discovered by some folks in the industry, who contacted Chris for some work. From there he’s gone on to work for Hollywood films and TV shows such as Deadpool, Terminator: Dark Fate and Netflix’s The Punisher series. Check out the full interview here.

And if somehow you haven’t seen Scene 38 Reimagined, watch it now!

 

Spaceship Sound Effects Pack

 

Spaceships, done right, can be iconic.

 

They’re a character in their own right. Just think about your favorite spaceship. The Millennium Falcon, Serenity, Battlestar Galactica, Starship Enterprise, they’re all as much a part of your favorite movies and shows as the actors are.  The best ships are the ones that have personality (figuratively or often literally), quirks, a unique look, and  most importantly, great sound.

We’ve been building out the VFX side of things, with our 3D content regularly expanding and tutorials to help you along the way, but our audio options have been lacking. Until now.

 

We’re happy to say we now have over 45 spaceship sound effects available for download. This includes a variety of flyby action. interior sounds to set the vibe.  Audio for large and small aircraft, and everything in between. 11 of these sound effects are free for everyone.
