Watching Psychoville - Halloween Special
Whilst doing this I emailed my cast and crew the Major Project research pack.
I also came accross something rather pointless but quite interesting! One sound effect that has found a following with many sound editors and observant movie fans is a distinctive scream named Wilhelm. After "Distant Drums," the recording was archived into the studio's sound effects library, and was re-used in many Warner Bros. productions. The effect gained new popularity (its use often becoming an in-joke) after it was used in Star Wars and many other blockbuster films as well as television programs and video games. The scream is often used when someone is shot, falls from a great height, or is thrown from an explosion.
Dont be surprised if you hear a Wilhelm scream within Struwwelpeter!
Off tangent once again, heres an interesting explanation of Focal Length
