The Art of Making Movie Sounds




Right in time for the Oscars. Gary Hecker is what you’d call a “Foley artist,” someone who specializes in creating everyday sounds for movies – the sound of horses galloping, swords being unsheathed, dirt crunching beneath cowboy boots. In short, the big and small sounds you hear (and take for granted) whenever you see a movie. Timing. Creativity. They’re all part of this hidden art…

A quick PS: This Soundworks video collection takes you behind the scenes into the audio post-production of feature films, video game sound design, and original soundtrack scoring. Good spot by @sheerly.
