today i learned – thurs 14th june 2018

seen the new jurassic world just yet? 🦖 either way, i’m possibly about to make it a little less special 🙈

#tdil exactly how foley artists created some of the prehistoric sounds used in the film 🤓

so, for those of you that don’t know, a foley artist is someone that adds sound effects to a film … things like paper crinkling, footsteps, horses galloping 🐎

it’s actually pretty amazing to watch these people in action, as they use all sorts of weird contraptions to make the authentic sounds that you hear in films – one of my fave examples is using coconuts to mimic the sound of horse hoofs! 🐴

anyway, in jurassic park, the lost world and jurassic world, they used some surprising things to bring the big scary giants to life! 😏 here are two that i learned about today!

so, first of all, let’s look at the terrifying roars that the big scary dinosaurs make 😳 i mean, it wasn’t like they could just find a dinosaur and record it 😅

instead, they recorded industrial machinery, lion roars, pig grunts and monkey cries to get the sounds that they needed! they then used sound editing software to combine them all in such a way that they managed to create the perfect dinosaur roars! 🦕 #amazing

the second one that i learned about today was the terrifying noise of giant chomping jaws #omnom 😏

this one is actually slightly ironic 😂 those terrifying jaws that predators wield and eat things with actually got their noise thanks to humble strips of celery being broken!! 😱 that’s right … carnivore jaw noises were made my salad 🙈

and there we go … that’s us for the day 😏 hopefully it hasn’t made the films any less special 😂 i just find the job of foley artist fascinating and i wanted to share it 🤷🏻‍♂️

laters y’all 😘 #tdil
