Foley and Sound Research By Jakob Margetts, Daniel Alaka and George TruslerFoley sound: Foley sound is the process used by film makers where soundeffects are added to the film in post production to enhance the quality of theaudio in films, television, radio and video games. The person who is incharge of creating these sounds is the Foley artist. Some of the maincomponents of Foley sound are: foot steps which is the reproduction of all thefootsteps in the specific scene, The moves are a simply a track recorded torepresent the clothing worn by each character in the picture, The spot effectsare all the other sounds that are recorded to replicate sounds or complementevents on screen for example: telephones being picked up and chairs beingmoved and finally the soundscapes which is made up of one or severaldifferent sounds in order to create a natural environment. We will includeFoley sound in our film because it is a good technique to use to add certainfilms that may be difficult to film or record. Another reason why we will use itis because we will be able to create a specific atmosphere that we want toachieve, for example if we want to make the scene emotional then we canmanipulate the sound to make it emotional.Sound research: Sound is very important to the film industry and to our filmbecause with the sound we can create an effect that will show and potrtay thespecific atmosphere that we want to create and show to the audience whatthis film is all about. If we did not include sound then the film would become asilent film and it becomes more difficult to show what a film is about in theopening title sequence.
