Cricket crowds help out on LOTR sound effects.
A few days back we reported that the film company was going to use the crowds at an upcoming cricket match to provide the crowd noise for scenes in the next movies. Ringer spy and cricket fan Catherine wrote in to tell us what it was like:
“I had such an awesome time at the cricket 🙂 It was fantastic that the man himself directed us. I made sure I was right in front of a mic too, so when the movie comes out I’ll be able to say you hear that squeaky, girly sounding Orc that’s me!! He got us to stamp our feet which was amazing to hear 25,000 people all in time. We beat on our chests, chanted in Orc – I did my best to lower my voice 🙂 Whispered, hummed did some good old heavy breathing. And we won the game too, all in all a great night.”Posted in Old Spy Reports on February 19, 2002 by Tehanu
