I’ve worked on and written music for plenty of Hollywood movies and TV shows, including NCIS and Arrested Development. With so many episodes, so many storylines, and fast turnarounds, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. So anything that can help you get the work done faster is a plus.
In Hollywood, everything is magic and make-believe, even sounds. When you watch a film that immerses you completely in its world, you’re probably hearing the work of sound artists. If the work is done right, you won’t be able to tell that the “natural” sounds on screen are manufactured with studio props. That’s the challenge for Warner Bros. Foley artists Alyson Moore, Chris Moriana and mixer Mary Jo Lang. Theirs is a practice in recreation, one creative element at a time.
