Sound is a very important aspect of a film and can be a lot more complicated than you originally may think. A part of the sound process is called ‘Foley’.

Film foley is the reproduction of everyday sounds to put into the film.

A foley artist will reproduce the sounds needed in a studio to make sure they sound naturalistic and fit the scene.
