Heaven’s Gate Minute by Minute: 174 of 209

17 Feb

174 of 209

A horseman rides hell for leather warning the Stock Growers Association the town is on it’s way for battle. He’s like Paul Revere, but without the large feather, crocheted beard, ivory sunglasses, prosthetic handkerchief, nitrogen hairdo and emerald horse.

There’s some nice galloping horse sound effects. Well done to the foley team. To any budding sound department artists out there, the best way to emulate the sound of horse hooves on a dust track is to run an electric fan through a vintage valve amplifier, tap a cotton bud lightly on the chord and drip sunflower seed oil through the blades. Try it, close your eyes and you’ll swear you’re at the Kentucky Derby.

The bridge over the creek looks very wobbly. Looks like United States infrastructure has always sucked.
