Foley Fail and Success

This Foley assignment was the funnest by far. I loved this project. Although it was only a 30 second clip, there were a lot of actions in that time period. I had the 1:31 to 2:00 slot. For that 30 second slot, I counted seven actions.

  • Tapping Leg
  • Girl faints on ground
  • Water splashing out of pan
  • Lion Yawning
  • Pan drop/running
  • lean up against door
  • Lion gets up

For the tapping leg, I could not actually tap my leg because I used my laptop as a recording device. I wanted to use my phone but it would delay transition time. So I tap my hand on a can. I made the fainting voice and actually splashed water out of a pan. Luckily I did not ruin my laptop while doing this :). I also made the pitiful lion yawning sound and the pan drop. Instead of leaning up against a door I imagined what Chaplin might say with a lion running toward him.

The experience was a rush. To create the sounds in 30 seconds and time it perfectly with the video was fun. Although I wish that I could have done a little better with timing, I enjoyed this assignment very much. It did take a lot of napkins and two takes to get it right but I finally completed the assignment. The first link is my epic fail and the second is the final!

    Hi Jasmine,

    I am so glad you included the sound of the lion because the lion is in the video the whole time. Very creative and I loved how you categorized everything in a certain order and I thought it was very good . :) Nice Job!
