Foley Sound Effects

The Guerrilla Guide To Moviemaking, Moviemaking 101/201 curriculum teaches the fundamentals of filmmaking.

The exercises included in the curriculum inspire creativity as students learn to apply those fundamentals to create more powerful messages.

Whether it’s ambient sound (birds chirping outside) or a specific sound for an action that is happening on-screen, it’s great fun to add sound effects to movies.  There are sound effects libraries, but the real fun is in creating the sound effect yourself.  Foley artists have been creating sound effects for our favorite movies since the creation of talking pictures.


Play the movie for the assignment. This exercise will be added to the library of exercises in the Moviemaking 101/201 curriculum available at guerrillafilmguide.com.
