COOL VIDEO: Behind The Sounds Of The Avengers.

Sound Designer Christopher Boyes goes ‘behind the masks’ to explain the incredible superhero sounds from The Avengers. From the resonant sound of Captain America’s shield to the distinct sound from a movement of Thor’s hammer being picked up, dropped down or thrown – and the amazing combination of voices that ended up being the screams of The Hulk.

Supervising Sound Editor and Sound Designer Christopher Boyes goes ‘behind the masks’ to explain the  incredible superhero sounds from The Avengers. From the resonant sound of Captain America’s shield to the distinct sound from a movement of Thor’s hammer being picked up, dropped down or thrown, effects that had been previously created for prior films were borrowed, honored and sometimes enhanced in this major blockbuster film.

See how The Hulk began as animal sounds and evolved into a specially effected combination of actual human roars. (A recipe that included Mark Rufalo, original Loe Ferrigno, Boyes himself, and a couple of guys from New Zealand!)

It sounds cool but I’m worried that eventually I’ll be too old to figure out how to use anything anymore. I’ve already stopped trying to program my favorite TV channels into cable system because it just seems to complicated.

This is CRAZY, COOL, and completely COMPELLING. The former CIA “Chief Of Disguise” (yes, that exists) shows just how sophisticated the process of disguising an agent has become.

Jonna Mendez once held that title. Here, she shows how she transformed agents’ identities with nuances both subtle and dramatic. She even shows how she once brilliantly demonstrated a lifelike mask to a former President. It turns out all the crazy stuff I saw on Scooby Doo as a kid was really possible!
