Lol, how did u record the violent bits? Like did u use sound effects or what?

I actually answered a similar question over on my personal blog @thelaurenshippen, so I’m gonna copy that answer here: 

Episodes 39 & 40 were actually recorded very differently from our usual episodes. Normally we record sitting down in my bedroom, but for these final two episodes of the season, we went to The Invisible Studios, which meant we got to do a little bit of blocking and were standing the whole time.

For the end of this episode, we were all eight of us in the room together, facing the mic from various distances. Because of how the mic picks up sound, you have to face it the whole time, which meant that Charlie was basically sneaking up on us on his entrance (and that was very creepy and effective, let me tell you). We all had to be very, very still and then when the physical bit came, Briggon actually marched over to Charlie and the two of them went through the basic motions of what happened. Cue complete chaos.

Sometimes the things we have to do for recording get a bit silly, but this was honestly chilling to do. Because I couldn’t turn around and look at Briggon and Charlie, all I heard was the distressed sounds they were making. It was an incredibly tense scene to record after about 4 hours of intense recording for Episode 39 and I found myself calling cut sooner and sooner with each take because I just couldn’t listen to it anymore.

Then the incredible @mischaetc put in the punching/bone-crunching in post so you could ask them if you want more specifics!
