Here is how you do it:

  • Get Game your Video for iPhone/ iPod Touch if you don’t already have it.
  • Create a video based on the Halloween theme.
  • Share it from within the app on Youtube with the title “GYV SPOOKTACULAR”. While sharing, please check mark the “Promote on I DID THIS” option.



  • The most spooktacular video will win a $50 iTunes Gift Card.
  • The contest is valid from 26th Oct – 4th Nov.


Some tips to get you going:

  • 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 flavor. 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.
