Re: [DML] BTTF Engine Swap comments




Bob Gale, writer and producer of BTTF just wrote a whole article for 
this coming issue of DCS magazine about using the DeLorean, and it's 
many interesting (good and bad) facets, including engine issues.

It's a great read, and he sent me tons of photos, drawings and 
schematics that we've included in this issue.  If you aren't currently a 
subscriber, you can buy the single issue, or subscribe by going to

Thanks for the shameless plug space moderators!

>I doubt very much that they swapped out the engines just to get the added jet sound.  As a film producer let me explain that just about EVERY sound you hear that are not the actors voices are added in later in post-production.  (footsteps, clock ticking, doors creaking, gunshots, engines running etc...) The DeLorean engine sound in the movie is created by a sound engineer and put in.  They did not put in a V8 just to get the engine growl.  They may have swapped out the engine for other reasons but it is inaccuracte to suggest the sound dept relied on a swapped engine for their effects.    I have worked with dozens of sound guys and they take lots of pride in the fact thay they create their sounds with like an artist.
