In 2014, Sami posted a video he recorded outdoors in the middle of the night. A fox was crying out very loudly. I immediately asked him if I could borrow the audio from it and he said I could, as long as I gave proper credit to him whenever appropriate.

In 2019, I finally released a feature film that I've put 4 years into! I sampled the audio from Sami's video, the fox's wail was perfect for 2 scenes in the movie, it is heard around 12:00 and 50:00. Also, in Sami's recording, there is a whirring noise in the background that I used as an ambient effect. The soundtrack and ambient sound design in this movie was done very thoughtfully.

I haven't played URW or visited this forum since 2015, before the forum was recreated. I played URW a lot and I thoroughly enjoyed this community. I want to share my finished movie with you all, and I hope you like it. It's a drama about overcoming insomnia and challenging the status quo of conventional society. I put a ton of time and energy into this project and I'm trying to get it off of the ground...

Here is a 5-minute behind-the-scenes Director's Story - https://vimeo.com/350330067
And here's the full film. It's not free, but it costed me everything to get it to this point and buying it helps me recover my losses - https://vimeo.com/ondemand/bentonsomnolence

Wow, a full length feature-film is such an achievement. Congratulations, Tomahawk! I'll be sure to give this a go, and it's so great that the fox recording ended up in something this big. Some indie stuff helping in creating of more indie stuff is the way to go. The list of awards the movie had received seemed quite impressive. Thumbs up! I truly hope you get the financial on good side, and will continue movie making in the future.
