I really love sound but like a lot of other topics it falls under the category of ‘what is this magic’!? I’ve been trying to learn more about the process of sound design so that I can actually have some useful input into that side of our animations.
RocketJump Film School (found here) has a sound section with some good introductory material.
This is the short that they made in order to introduce other tutorials based on sound design.
Following on from their short, the following video describes what foley is and how it is used. From what they’ve told me, Blayne and Katie already seem to have some experience in creating foley which is great!
- Foley – adds all the subtle, realistic small noises from everyday
- the space you record is more important than equipment
- turn off background noise pollution – signal to noise ratio
- Keep your foley subtle to make it more believable
This is the lesson plan/article here.
