I recently posted an older article that had some good sound design material and I am going to follow it up with another!  Many people have probably already seen this but if you haven’t go here now!  The good people at Epic Sound put together a great list of ways to make common sfx.  Great ideas such as for slow motion bullets to: “Record the spout of a ’70’s coffe perculator”.  And for Depth Charges: “1/2 speed toilet flushing with plate reverb”.

This resource is a great jumping off point for new sound designers and could even get some seasoned people out of a pickle or two.
