This past week we recorded foley for To Rest in Peace. It was amazing to see the efficient creativity of foley artist Karina Becker, and sound designer Chris Whetstone. Who knew that handling a pipe, attached to a broomstick with a leather belt, could sound so much like handling an AK-47?
For those outside the world filmmaking, who may not know what foley recording is, check out this Wikipedia entry. Pictured above is Karina stepping onto cassette tape to reproduce footsteps on grass.
On the agenda for the next two weeks is music recording, colour correction, and the final sound mix. It will be a tight squeeze, but everything is on schedule for finishing the film by the end of April. Knock wood. Or some other material that strangely sounds like it.
