Foley Artist

When “talkies” (motion pictures with synchronized sound) took the film industry by storm in the late 1920s, new audio art was created by Jack Foley. He was the first to record sound effects and sync them to the film in post-production, creating an entire art of sound design. Foley requires a sound stage to record the special effects, with a collection of peculiar odds and ends kept on hand to recreate everyday sounds. Doors slamming, floors creaking, phones ringing, swords clanking, and papers rustling are all sounds that are recorded through Foley once the film is shot.
