Behind the Scenes of Post-Production: Foley Artists

Cinematography wouldn’t as be effective in telling a story without sound. Hence the reason I want to give you a glimpse into the work of foley artists. Their job is to create the sound effects in sync to the film after production.

Watch the team of foley artists Alyson Moore and Chris Moriana and sound mixer Mary Jo Lang recreate sounds to the given footage – It’s fascinating!

So much of the attention goes to the filmmakers above-the-line, which they deserve, of course, but often the filmmakers below-the-line are taken for granted.

“If they do their jobs right, you won’t even notice.”

Enjoy this video which might even give you so much inspiration, you’ll want to become a Foley artist yourself!
