Foley is a multi-week project that introduces pupils to the lesser-known art form of Foley. Foley artists are responsible for developing the many sound effects added to films and TV programmes. From explosions to lightsabers, thunder to rainfall and the numerous character noises we encounter when watching such media. Our team will bring a variety of props, audio recording equipment and excitement to what is a new and highly enjoyable activity.
