What the Bleep?

Original Scene from The Wire

I found the That Bleeping Censor Assignment, and I really wanted to do it. I of course immediately thought of the scene from season 1 of The Wire, where McNulty and Bunk are investigating an old crime scene, and the only phrases they say the whole scene are “fuck,” “mother fucker,” “mother f,” “what the fuck,” etc. I got a copy of the scene from youtube here, embedded below. I downloaded it, and then used this tutorial to figure out how to censor audio on iMovie (I’m still not sure this is the best way but it wasn’t hard so it worked). I then used iMovie, and using the bleeping sounds provided by the tutorial, I muted the cuss words, and put the bleeping sounds over them. This was a very fun scene to work on because the amount of cuss words I had to censor out. There were parts where the dialogue was “fuck” said about 10 times very quickly. Instead of having a series of little bleeps, which hurt my head to listen to, I had one long bleep. Enjoy!

  1. Great clip to choose. This one always stands out because they just curse TOO much. Your tutorial helped a lot also!

  2. Nice Work. I have to say that was a great scene for this assignment. You couldn’t have picked a better one. Great Job !!
