Imagine making movies sound real! Foley artists, masters of sound, music, and rhythm, are the magicians behind immersive film sounds. Using everyday objects, they make footsteps, door creaks, and even the swish of a dragon's tail come to life. Now, it's your turn to try being a Foley artist!

Your Task:

  1. Pick a short scene from your favorite movie or make one up (like a character walking in a forest).

  2. Think about 3 sounds you'd hear in that scene. Think about how you could recreate those sounds. For example, you could rustle a bag for leaves or tap two pencils together for footsteps.

  3. Write down your scene, the sounds, and how you would make them. Bonus - recreate those sounds for real and create a short video (2 minutes or less) showing off your Foley Skills.

  4. Submit your written scene and sound effects, or share a link to a video of your Foley artistry in action. Let's hear how creative you can get with making movie magic!
