What is foley?

Foley is the art of recording sound effects synchronised with the picture. In a foley stage all the sounds are recorded that directly relate to the actors moves and have to synchronise exactly with action (e.g. footsteps, fight sounds, falls). Performance is a key factor because the sound the foley artist makes has to exactly match with what you see on screen. In the case of footsteps the sound has to match the character’s fysics, personality and mood. And ofcourse the rhythm of the recorded footsteps has to be exactly the same as that of the actor.
In the case of props we have an enormous amount of props that can squeak, creak, splash, ting or rattle, so we always manage to find the right prop that makes the sound we need.
