Our style

We love recording natural sounding foley, but also know how to make big Hollywood foley effects when necessary. Separate ‘room mics’ capture the natural reverb of the studio that we mix with the dry signal to create perspective and distance in the sound. Not only does this sound more realistic than adding tons of digital reverb later, but we also save the sound designer hours of tweaking the sound.

The acoustics of the studio is adjustable so we can make it match with the acoustics in the scene. We like to be creative too, by using contact mics, hydrophones and trying out unconventional ways to get the best sound for the scene.


Technicalities aside the most important thing is supporting the story with our sound. We always keep the story in mind and try to improve a scene with our foley. It’s great when you notice that you can create more suspense in a scene with the right wood creak, or make a joke more funny with just the right sound.
