If you think that the sound of a roaring monster crushing everything on its way is created by an actual monster – I have bad news for you, it’s not. It appears sound effect guys and girls use all kinds of everyday objects to simulate the sound in movies – from hissing fried bacon to imitate the sound of rain to stapler imitating gunshots. You’ll be amazed at just how precise are the substitute sounds compared to the original ones.
Fighting – Meat
A good fighting scene always looks and sounds quite meaty. Punching a steak is the only way to create a believable sound of hitting someone.
Kissing – Hand Smooch
A kissing scene can either turn movie into a masterpiece, or it can easily make it a total flop that will make viewers turn away. To create that perfect kissing sound Foley artists need to smooch their own hands passionately!
Lightning – Aluminium Sheets
It’s not often you get to make the lightning sounds, but when you do – it’s for some special occasion that involves superpowers or some great moments depicting nature. Well, to create that amazing thunder-and-lightning sound you’ll just need a sheet of aluminium foil! Move it, shake it, and experience the storm right inside your room.
