If you’ve seen the original Jurassic Park, you’ll likely always remember the first time the T-Rex roared on screen. The volume and bass of that roar tested the limits of many theater and home theater sound systems. The sound designers of Jurassic Park were tasked with creating a realistic roar for an animal that had been extinct for about 65 million years. Additionally, each dinosaur had it’s own distinctive sounds. Where did these sounds come from?
SoundWorks Collection, a organization that profiles sound designers for film, games and stage brings you behind the scenes on how the Jurassic World’s vicious and intelligent Indominus Rex got it’s roar.
In the new film, Jurassic World, twenty years have passed since the events of Jurassic Park. Located off the coast of Costa Rica, the Jurassic World luxury resort provides a habitat for an array of genetically engineered dinosaurs. One of the creatures escapes, it sets off a chain reaction that causes the other dinos to run amok. Now, it’s up to a former military man and animal expert (Chris Pratt) to use his special skills to save two young brothers and the rest of the tourists from an all-out, prehistoric assault.
