Foley artist Gregg Barbanell has over 500 film and TV credits, including huge hits like "Breaking Bad," "The Walking Dead," and "Little Miss Sunshine" -- though you've probably never recognized his work.
Alexis Niki's insight:
I love learning about all the people and professions that contribute to a story. My favorite take-away from this article is this anecdote about Barbanell's work on LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE:
“I happened to accidentally find this funky old pickup truck tailgate in a junkyard. When I stepped on it, it made this amazingly funny creaking noise -- EEEEERRRHHHHKKK. Instead of using my prop for the sliding door sound effect, I used it when the family had to get out and push the thing to get it going. That sound effect actually got a laugh at screenings."
And his follow-up comment:
"Adding a laugh that wasn’t there before -- that’s like the brass ring for Foley artists,” Barbanell says. “Yeah, I was proud of that.”
How do you show a character texting in a movie or TV show and make it interesting? Filmmakers are finding new ways.
Alexis Niki's insight:
In a world where we're always connected, it's implausible for fictional characters not to be. Equally implausible is having them read their text messages out loud to nobody in particular. Integrating text messages in a film seamlessly is tricky, as is finding ways to deprive characters of their mobile phones in moments of dramatic peril. Here are some things people have tried, with varied success. How about you? Have you come up with interesting ways to weave today's technology into your visual storytelling?
