What is Foley Effect?
  • Foley is creating and recording 'live' sound
    effects to be added to a film, video and other
    media program in the post-production stage,
    providing a controllable background layer of
    sound that produces a rich and realistic audio
    environment.

  • These reproduced sounds can be of anything from
    the clothes rustling, breaking glass and
    footsteps to squeaky doors.
  • The real Foley art is so well integrated into a
    film that it goes unrecognized by the viewers.
  • It basically helps to generate a real sense of
    reality within a scene.
  • Without these crucial background noises, films
    feel unnaturally quiet and awkward.

Why is it called Foley?
  • This technique is named after Jack Foley, who
    created the basic modern techniques which is
    still used.
  • Like most terms that are named in honour of a
    person, it is common to spell Foley with a
    capital "F".

  • Additional sounds to be added to create mood and
    atmosphere.
