Week 07 – Final Project – The Foley Studio, cont.

Assignment – Get started recording the soundscape and interview for the final project.

Working – Matt and I went into the Foley Studio again to record in silence for our projects. It wasn’t until afterwards that we noticed something wrong. I could’ve sworn we plugged it into the mono jack… or the Sennheiser K6 or Marantz Professional had an issue.

Regardless, we got creative and had a lot of fun. Matt brought some crazy things that I couldn’t compete with.

Reflection – The Foley Studio is very hot in temperature. Also, making horse-trotting sounds without weights or coconuts is painful to the knuckles and will cause breakage of skin.

For the next Foley session:

  • Horse
    • Small breathing sounds
    • More “clink” for the bridle – keys?
    • Additional slower trot
  • Ground
    • Dragging of dirt against plastic box
    • Less rock noises – clear the floor
    • Leaves need more ring-off/decay
  • Runnin
    • Kicking of dirt
    • Breath more “uh” rather than “oh”
    • Stronger inhale

Take a peek at my faulty progress!
