Foley artists have one of the most magical jobs in the world. They make all the everyday sound effects added to film and video in post-production. The sounds of footsteps on different surfaces, water sloshing, keys unlocking locks, doors opening, paper rustling, and so on. It’s a job that requires extraordinary patience, concentration, and creativity and when the Foley artists have done their job well, it shouldn’t even occur to the viewer to wonder how or where those sounds were made.
