This seems to be morphing from a sound forum to a foods forum. :-|

Re: Body drop sound effects

Not quite a food form Greg, the main body of the thread is about sound effects so let's not get into a stew about it, or maybe you're just trying to stir things up a bit :-)

Re: Body drop sound effects

It worked for me: a thawed turkey dropped on its back onto concrete covered with plastic wrap from the top of a large step ladder. I did a little sound editing, stretching it a bit, and bringing out a little base. Then, I cooked the turkey. None of my family thought it was any crazier than the other video stunts I had pulled.

Hmmm

I remember the old days (OLD days) when Boston's North End was still almost 100% Italian (before it became a Yuppified) that they used to sell dressed lambs for Easter and there were always a couple of dozen hanging on hooks in front of the meat markets. Would have probably been great for this.

Re: Body drop sound effects

For some reason I have been thinking that you should drop a watermelon on the ground for the body drop effect.

Plus, it's another item on the food bill that becomes a tax write-off. :-)
