What you need to do to submit
sounds to The Movie Sounds Page
Thanks for your interest in submitting sounds to The Movie Sounds Page (TMSP). I get a lot of mail from people interested in submitting sounds, and so I added this page to the site to make it easier to handle submissions. Following these steps will result in a little more effort on your part, but will make it easier for me to handle what comes in, and easier for your submitted sounds to actually appear on the site.
First, and most important: Only submit sounds from Movies. As funny as they may be, I can't use sounds from "The Simpsons", or from SNL, or from cartoons... from anything that's not a theatrical movie.
There are three basic categories for submissions:
Please be discriminating in what you choose to submit. Don't send in your entire collection. Pick and choose only the very best sounds in both content and sound quality. I also prefer to get sounds that aren't available elsewhere. If most of your collection was downloaded from alt.binaries.sounds.movies, chances are I already have the same sounds, or someone else has already sent them to me.
If you don't know how to follow these directions, please don't write and ask me how to zip files or convert sounds or how to use FTP. The software instructions will often tell you what to do, or you can ask your provider, or read the various FAQs available.
Here are the general criteria for submitting all types of sounds:
your.wav (file size) From: Movie Title Character Name: (Actor name, if known) Then write out the dialogue.
If you're submitting an entire movie's worth of sounds, just write the movie title once at the top of the page, not for each sound. Also, include a link to be used as a credit on the page containg your submissions. Your template would look like this:
Movie Title Your Name. Your URL. your1.wav (file size) Character Name: Then write out the dialogue. your2.wav (file size) Character Name: Then write out the dialogue. your3.wav (file size) Character Name: Then write out the dialogue. and so on....
Now then, if you are ready to upload some
sounds, roll up your sleeves, crack your knuckles, flex your mouse arm and
SEND THOSE FILES!
