Hi guysI'm doing some research on Foley for visual media for my final university project. If you have a couple of minutes could you fill in my questionnaire? https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/MNBFGPQCheersMartynhttp://www.mgreenaudio.co.uk
Hi Everyone, I am a Sound Editor at a post sound studio in Hollywood, and we are in the process of building a new space. I was put in charge of designing our foley pits, and I don't really have any experience with the design and construction of them. This is a legitimate foley stage, so please don't give me ideas for portable pits. We are going to have one small pit in our ADR room, and then a larger pit for our theater. I have a few questions about the construction of these foley pits for anyone who might know. 1) How deep do the pits need to be? 2) For surfaces like tile, wood, and carpet, do I need dig out the space and pour concrete to put the tile and carpet on, or can I place the tile on the preexisting concrete without digging out the space? 3) I'm assuming the pit is one large hole, but each surface is divided by wood. What kind of wood and how thick does it need to be? 4) What is the ideal size for each surface? 5) I plan on pouring the concrete into a hole that is at least 4 feet deep to prevent it sounding hollow, but is there a way to keep the concrete surface from sound clicky? We aren't going to have a water pit, because there isn't enough budget to add plumbing to drain it. Any help you guys can give me would be much appreciated. -Matt
Hello everyone, I was wondering if you guys wouldn't mind giving me a hand with something... I am studying an Audio Post Production module at university and I have a piece of work coming soon where I have to take five minutes of a film and re-do it all (Score, sound effects and dialogue). I have decided to do a scene from an old martial arts film. Here lies my problem though. To make it authentic I want to produce the sound effects the way they did. However, finding anything on this has proven extremely difficult. The sound effects I am trying to discover more about are: A powerful punch on bare skin A quick snap punch or kick Bone brake. Along the lines of or even Is there anyone out there that has any research or has any knowledge as to how these sounds were made back in the day? It would be a great help. Cheers, Tom
