What you'll do
Explore the magic of sound effects with a 4-time Emmy nominated Hollywood Foley Artist currently working for major studios like Disney, Netflix, Sony, and Warner Bros. Coming to you from my Foley studio in Los Angeles. This is where I've recorded sounds for dozens of TV shows: Atlanta, Glow, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, New Girl, and many more. Let's begin with introductions, then a quick talk about Foley and its importance in TV and film. I'll explain how it's recorded, when it's used, and why you always hear Foley in every TV show and Movie. And, honestly why I think it’s the coolest job in the world! Then, I show you selected items from my vast Foley prop collection-- props used in actual TV shows! Handcuffs-Orange is the New Black, Stethoscope-Good Doctor/E.R., Coconut shells-Hell on Wheels, and my snow-trick prop used for Fargo! Next, the shoes! Watch and listen as I demonstrate my footstep techniques for various characters, from soldiers to debutantes. Finally, we look at an actual TV episode I've worked on. I show how we can layer sounds using the Pro Tools software. Watch how Foley is added to a simple scene. And a complex one! Come hear the Magic! It's informative, interactive and you'll learn a lot about a little-known Hollywood craft! People love it!* *A truly unique experience- Arpana *Facinating stuff!- Julee
