I find the art of making sound effects fascinating. Michael Coleman’s short documentary follows Foley artist Gary Hecker and his process for creating the effects for somewhat recent Russell Crowe Robin Hood film.
Foley is a totally amazing art form. Its super interesting to see amount of tools Hecker uses to create each of the sounds. At the same time I feel like the doc makes the process seem fairly simple by showing a horse, reminiscent of classic Monty Python scene. Yet this isn’t two coconuts against each other. The amount of work Foley takes is pretty remarkable.
Seen on Gawker.
