"...incredibly fascinating experience!" Mark. " A simple must-do if you love Hollywood magic." Melissa. Enter the world of professional filmmaking with a working Hollywood Foley Artist. We'll start with a quick talk about the art of Foley and how it's used in every TV show and movie. (Bone breaks, floor creaks, SWAT footsteps, kissing!...) Next, it's time for you to star in your very own film, where you’ll recreate an epic sword battle! After we yell “Cut!” you’ll tour a collection of professional Foley props used in some of your favorite shows like Bull, Designated Survivor, Glow, New Girl, American Vandal and Atlanta. You will then use these props to create the sounds for your film! Do your best and make it loud! And even, add your own voice-over! Like the stars! Laugh hard, and be amazed when we play back your battle video with your very own Sound FX and voices! By the end you’ll have a new perspective on what it really takes to make movie magic!
I’m a 4-time Emmy nominated Foley Artist who’s been working in Hollywood for over 25 years on shows like NCIS L.A., Orange is the New Black, Lost, Pose, Fargo, and more. I love showing people this little-known art form, and how a well-timed celery crunch can turn a fight scene from bogus to believable. A lifelong Los Angeles resident, I enjoy exploring the city with my family, and I’m a fan of bodysurfing, roller-hockey, and barbeque.
All studio gear and props
We’ll be at my home studio in the San Fernando Valley, 20 minutes North of Downtown Los Angeles. It’s where I’ve recorded Foley for shows like Arrested Development, Atlanta, GLOW, The Middle, and Designated Survivor.
