Ever wondered how film-makers record the noise of ants’ feet scurrying up the trunk of a tree, the footsteps of a polar bear in the snow or a shark crushing the bones of it’s prey? Well, in short they don’t. These are the skills of the Foley artist. Being able to be that animal, replicate it’s movement, consider what they might even sound like to the animal itself.
Foley is the reproduction of everyday sound effects that are added to film, video, and other media in post-production to enhance audio quality and give depth. These reproduced sounds can be anything from the swishing of clothing and footsteps to squeaky doors and breaking glass. The best Foley art is so well integrated into a film that it goes unnoticed by the audience. It helps to create a sense of reality within a scene. Without these crucial background noises, movies feel unnaturally quiet and uncomfortable.
In this workshop, Rich Butler, Senior Tech for Audio, will give you an insight into the world of the Foley artist. Here you will have the opportunity to be the Foley artist for a natural history production, as well as being at being the re-recording mixer on the other side of the glass.
TVPaint Animation is the leading paperless drawing and animation tool, able to imitate traditional techniques such as Pen Brush, Gouache, Watercolour, Pencil, Felt-tip and Airbrush, and animate them over frames. Using only TVPaint Animation, you can create an animated movie from start to finish, including storyboarding and all the steps (rough, clean-up, keyframes and in-betweening) through to final compositing. Pete Felstead & Pete Strube, Senior Technicians for Animation & Post Production, will introduce you to the TVPaint interface. This workshop will concentrate on drawing and painting tools, and basic animation techniques within TVPaint.
