How To Record Your Own Foley Tracks At Home

How To Record Your Own Foley Tracks At Home | Arts Independent | Scoop.it
Having reviewed many of the films for 50 Kisses, one common thread is emerging. A lack of solid audio post production, and in particular, a lack of foley. The video above gives you a really good overview of a professional foley artists job – and you can do the same too. Foley tracks are created…

watch the embeded video about the making of foley tracks - it is incredible! we did a bunch of foley on Death To Prom and at first I thought it was overkill, but it was absolutely necessary and added so much depth and polish.

Though it’s been designed primarily for 3D gaming VR, it can also do things like controlling aerial camera drones. Clearly in the near future there are going to be some passive film viewing applications for the Oculus

“What’s exciting about it, I feel like we’re in 1927 when sound was first being introduced,” The Mission’s director Matthew Gratzner told Gizmodo, “but what you have to realize is that you don’t really have the ability to do coverage. In other words, you’re looking 360 degrees so every time you’re shooting something you have to be aware of someone or something you could see in the background [that shouldn't be there]. There is no ‘behind the camera’.”

The Challenges of 3D Filmmaking and The Future of 3D: An Academy Masterclass | Arts Independent | Scoop.it
No cinematic topic in the last few years has instigated as much -- or as intense -- debate as 3D. The jury is still out on how it bridges the art and science of motion pictures, or whether it does so at all.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, October 30, 2013 3:02 AM

Filmmakers like James Cameron have stated that 3D will change the way a film is made, period. Neuman added weight to this belief by saying that in 3D, the screen is thought of less as a flat surface and more as a stage, complete with a proscenium arch. This arch is the primary outlet for letting audiences "into" the frame. It is vital to the composition of the shot, and works as the "window."

Quote:4. Don't Overestimate Audience Interactivity "Overestimating people's desire to be interactive can be a problem," says Ingrid Kopp. "You don't want to be constantly asking the audience to do work." Kopp cites two projects that achieve the right balance of interactivity and observation, Arte's "Alma - A Tale of Violence" and the NFB's "Bear 71." Kopp calls the interactivity in both instances "soft," with not a lot of clicking. "You can just sit back and watch it," she says. In the case of "Alma," there is a more conventional interview-based 40-minute testimonial film, but viewers can also access a second-screen with supplemental visual material. Likewise, in "Bear 71," you can click around a map, "but it's still basically a 20 minute film," says Kopp. "It's not requiring you do to something interactive, but it's there, if you want it." "Meets the audience where they are," she says.

16 Big Marketing Ideas For Filmmakers On A Small Budget

16 Big Marketing Ideas For Filmmakers On A Small Budget | Arts Independent | Scoop.it

Why submit to the wintry economic climate when you can turn the fact that you have no money into an advantage.

 

One thing I have learned through producing independent films with Raw Talent is that throwing money at problems doesn’t necessarily make problems go away, and often the job is done with half the energy and passion need for success.

 

So true with marketing your film. The big agencies working for the big films are so tired and burnt out that their approaches to marketing are so staid. Additionally, when anything new comes along they are paralysed by board and committee meetings whereas you, being broke, can turn on a dime
