PixelHub Ep 22: Foley art with Alec Carson
Foley art has existed since the introduction of sound into film in the late 20’s, and foley artists since have been creating unique tweaks, slaps, and bangs that help immerse us into film, television and games.
However, foley art is a subtle yet powerful form of sound design that is different from traditional sound FX. It’s one requiring a keen sense of the characters and settings within a story’s world.
Dan and I sit down with Digital-Tutor’s own foley expert, Alec Carson, and asked him about his work on the latest Digital-Tutors Daydreamer short.
In addition, Alec gives us some live examples of how to create bone crushes, organic splatters, footsteps, and mechanical sounds with common household items.
