Making sounds for animations is quite hard, but so cool!!!

In filmmaking “foley” is the reproduction of everyday sound effects that are added to films, videos, and other media in post-production to enhance audio quality. These reproduced sounds, named after sound-effects artist Jack Foley, can be anything from the swishing of clothing and footsteps to squeaky doors and breaking glass. Foley sounds are used to enhance the auditory experience of the movie. Foley can also be used to cover up unwanted sounds captured on the set of a movie during filming, such as overflying airplanes or passing traffic.

First, two examples…

Now, try to find several things in your house:

  • sheet of paper
  • pan from the kitchen
  • chocolate sprinkles
  • gingerbread cookies in a box
  • ladle

Now it is our turn!
