Foley with Teens

IMG_0576In January the monthly Teen Media Club took on the task of learning the sound art of Foley. Using a short clip from the Pixar animated film, Wall-e, the teens gathered together odds and ends to recreate sounds to accompany the film.

While watching the film clip, they manipulated objects to bring sonic life to what they were watching on the screen. In one segment, a piece of bubble wrap and some gentle tapping and scraping with fingers simulated the walk of a cockroach. In another sequence, a cup, finger cymbal, plastic decoration, basketball, and other items became the sounds for a variety of items thrown by the title character into a lunch bucket.IMG_0580
