Watch the Painstaking Art of Making Movie Sound Effects

I’m not sure what I love most about foley artists: is it their wildly creative ways to recreate sound? The totally locked-in concentration they have to follow a scene? The all-around goofiness of the gig?

The short film The Secret World of Foley stars foley artists Pete Burgis and Sue Harding and paints a lovely portrait of them at work. Which means using play doh to mimic fish, rowing in a barrel filled with water to recreate rowing a boat on a lake, using a hose as a waterfall, and so much more. The craft of making noises knows no bounds.
