Bollywood Sound Factory: Meet foley artists of the industry
You should ideally know them as the ‘sound effects’ guy. Foley artists are a community of sound designers who work from behind the camera, on making the film sound awesome. The intricate sounds of footsteps, glass breaking, utensils clanging, sword languishing, cannot sound the same without the foley artists working on it. Because on-location sounds are rarely captured while filming & dialogues are given the utmost priority. So these sounds are re-created & replaced in the post production to remove the hollowness of the ambience. But in this era of technology where machines and robots are stealing jobs, would their talent & creativity also stand the advent of technology?
