How do animated and other movies get their sounds and squeals. Often at Skywalker Ranch courtesy of three times Oscar nominated sound designer Tom Myers.
“To make the sound of the glow urchins flying through the air and hitting a body, Myers did the following:
“The first is sort of a synthesized tone that I put through a Doppler program. I took that tone, pitched it down a bit, I think I added a little bacon frying with it. To give it some texture.”
That’s right. He adds the sound of bacon frying. And just so you know, this isn’t a fancy industry term. It’s literally the sound of bacon in a pan.
And beyond the pitched up tone and the bacon frying, there’s also the sound of two Hot Wheels cars banging into each other. And at one point, they used the sound of someone hitting a giant, empty water bottle.”
