When watching a film, the background music and sound effects add to the experience of the story. However, it’s easy to overlook what goes into developing the soundscape because, of course, if it’s done well, then you won’t notice it.
An award-winning short film, The Foley Artist by Just A Little production company, takes a look at the job of creating sound effects to tell the story of everyday life. Watching the film, you’ll witness the large divide between what you see and what it took to create the corresponding sound, from zippers to footsteps.
Some remarkable sound creations include using a watering can and colander to create the sound of a shower, and using a live animal for a cell phone chime.
