Home Foley Experiment: Fight Scene

Happy Thanksgiving from Science of Music!

We’ve got a new video project this week. Add some literal “punch” to your fight scenes by stealing some celery from the stuffing. Tell Mom it’s for SCIENCE. Or for ART? Whichever one will get you out of trouble with your relatives.

Foley is the art of adding sounds to a film to match the footage shown on screen. You’d be surprised to know that much of the sound you hear in movies is added in after the fact. In this video, we experimented with a simple fight scene you could recreate at home. There are also other sounds that you can create with celery: monster chomps and footsteps are a couple more examples. Create your own and let us know how you did it!
