Foley Workshop – October 28, 2018



Austen 2 - FoleyIn this workshop attendees will be learning about the art of foley work. It has emerged as a topic given the radio theme of our December production of It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play. Sound-effects played a huge part in live radio broadcasts and were not generally pre-recorded.

A basic definition for those who are not familiar with the term: Foley (named after sound-effects artist Jack Foley) is the reproduction of everyday sound effects that are added to film, video, and other media in post-production to enhance audio quality. These reproduced sounds can be anything from the swishing of clothing and footsteps to squeaky doors and breaking glass.

This is an introductory one-hour session being led by Austen Wright. Ms. Wright has been doing foley work as a hobby with the Post-Meridian Radio Players for six years. She will be covering the important principals of foley work (like how to act through the sound effects), how to do important basic sounds, and how to prepare a foley set-up for a show.

The workshop will run for approximately one hour.

The location for the workshop is the American Legion Post 210  /  44 Taylor Street  /  Saugus, MA  01906 – in the first floor meeting hall.
