It was brought to my attention in the first quarter of school that Foley was how movies would get a lot of their sound FX. Sound design in general was a new realm of audio engineering but the idea of taking a bunch of random crap and moving it around, blowing it up, stepping on it or smashing it sounded like a career path that would suit me. It’s what inevitably happens when drinking out in the country so if I can apply those skills a bit more professionally, I might have a sweet career path on my hands.
For Post Production class we are assigned to apply all the sound to a minute long movie that was given to us. Even though the movie is only a minute, there is much that goes in to designing sound. The sound of walking outside and how it changes when they come inside takes quite a bit of tweaking with EQ and re verb. I bought a sweet little Zoom H2 recorder and recording sounds in sync with the video is entertaining and probably quite embarrassing if anyone were to watch. This is a project that I am very happy about and am excited to hear the final product.
