I'm going to start shooting a short on the 19th of this month. I did some testing for a fight scene in the short. The problem I'm finding is that ACTUAL PUNCHING SOUNDS don't really work well for punching sound effects.
I believe that this kind of stuff is less than 50% what you see, and the rest is what you HEAR. Anyone on here have any hints or ideas as to how I can go about getting
realistic-sounding punching, kicking, slamming, or other violent fight-scene type sounds?
Here is a clip of a test I did last night - this test was to determine if I wanted to shoot 24p - As you can hear, the sound FX leave something to be desired...
