Using the actual sound to represent events to audiences isn’t always the most effective way to communicate. That’s certainly the case for some noises that are included in films and television series. The process of finding the best way to bring even the most common sounds to life on screen is highlighted in the new documentary, ‘Actors of Sound.’ In honor of the film being release on VOD this week by Freestyle Digital Media, Shockya is premiering an exclusive clip from the movie.
‘Actors of Sound’ features interviews from many well-known Foley artists in the industry today. From footsteps to bone cracks, Foley artists bring movies to life with their imaginative sound effects. But as digital technology goes full speed ahead in 21st century filmmaking, the question has arise if Hollywood’s low tech Foley artist can survive in the high tech age.
Lalo Molina directed ‘Actors of Sound,’ and also produced the documentary with Gustavo Bernal and Zoe Willoughby. The film features Gregg Barbanell, Marko Costanzo, Catherine Harper, John Roesch, Kitty Malone, Shelley Roden and David Fein.
Before the movie’s distribution on VOD, it premiered at the LA Film Festival. It was also nominated for Best Documentary Feature at last year’s Nashville Film Fest
