- Summaries (2)
Since the 1930's, sound gurus referred to as Foley artists have recreated the sounds that infuse a film with life. During a film's post-production, Foley artists recreate sounds then will match the moving image on-screen, using whatever objects are at their fingertips, from hundreds of pairs of old shoes to clunky old tools and squeaky mattresses. But how will Hollywood's low-tech sound artists survive as digital technology consumes modern movie making?
In the documentary film Actors of Sound, the viewer is transported into the dark, cluttered prop rooms where Foley artists make their magic. Exciting and sometimes hilarious footage features world renowned Foley artists manipulating props to create sounds, showcasing their truly unique creative process. From footsteps to bone cracks, Foley artists bring films to life with their imaginative sound effects, but as digital technology goes full speed ahead in 21st century movie-making, can Hollywood's low tech Foley artist survive in this high tech age? Through interviews with Directors, Foley artists and Sound Supervising Editors, Actors of Sound examines every facet of this craft, illuminating the impact technology is having on Foley.
