A Quick Foley Tip for Creating Wild Animal Roars

If you want to simulate the roar of a wild animal roaring, place two condenser mics, one outside the box, recording overall and the second facing the surface from the inside, to catch the resonance of the space, and start drawing the surface of the box!

Of course, you can experiment and change any of the variables mentioned it above, as for example: The size of the box, mic types and placement, writing tool (pen, pencil, marker ) e.t.c.
