Default Creating your own sound effects

Hello there,
I was reading a book about video editing... and I stumbled over this info, it sounded itresting to share with You:

Recording your own sound effects is pretty easy. Many sounds will actually
sound better in a video project if they’re simulated, as opposed to recording
the real thing. For example:

 Breaking bone: Snap carrots or celery in half. Fruit and vegetables can
be used to produce many disgusting sounds, and they don’t complain
about being broken in half nearly as much as human actors.

 Buzzing insect: Wrap wax paper tightly around a comb, place your lips
so that they are just barely touching the paper, and hum so that the wax
paper makes a buzzing sound.

 Fire: Crumple cellophane or wax paper to simulate the sound of a
crackling fire.

 Footsteps: Hold two shoes and tap the heels together followed by the
toes. Experiment with different shoe types for different sounds. This
may take some practice to get the timing of each footstep just right.

 Gravel or snow: Walk on cat litter to simulate the sound of walking
through snow or gravel.

 Horse hooves: This is one of the classic sound effects. The clop-clopclopping
of horse hooves is often made by clapping two halves of a
coconut shell together.

 Kiss: Pucker up and give your forearm a nice big smooch to make the
sound of a kiss.

 Punch: Punch a raw piece of steak or a raw chicken.

 Thunder: Shake a large piece of sheet metal to simulate a thunderstorm.

 Town bell: To replicate the sound of a large bell ringing, hold the handle
of a metal stew pot lid, and tap the edge with a spoon or other metal
object. Experiment with various strikers and lids for just the right effect.

Enjoy it

Toilet flushing - push down the handle, and start recording your favorite toilet

I saw a really cool show one time where they were showing how they do the foley effects on the Simpsons ... they were showing that scene where Bart has fallen in love with Lovejoy's naughty daughter and Bart's dreaming that she ripped his heart out and threw it in a garbage can.

They did the fist-punching-into-chest sound by cutting a hole in a watermelon, then actually punching into it to get that nice squishy sound. For the heart thrown into the garbage can I think they used a piece of raw meat, thrown at a wall and then falling into the garbage can. And I believe one guy was triggering sound effects in real time from a MIDI guitar while watching the episode in the control room. It was really cool.
