It’s about one more on the long list of fascinating jobs (you rarely hear about) in the entertainment business – Foley artists. You’d really miss them if they weren’t there!

I’ve always enjoyed learning just how they make those incredible sound effects that contribute so much “life” to films and TV shows.

One of my favorites mentioned is how to make the sound of stomping through the snow. Just fill a sock with cornstarch, tie a knot to keep it closed, and squeeze. Crunch, crunch. A good microphone helps!
