Straight after the Christmas holidays, I helped a friend with some foley recording work for her animation project. The soundscape was built from scratch, using an ambience recording of a draughty fireplace from my front room in Skerries, plus foley sounds of clothes, footsteps, pills, and an old shoe brush which doubled for the hedgehog’s movements.
The big project of 2017 for me was ‘Writing Home’, a feature film that required 6 weeks of on location filming plus some foley recordings. The film is finely acted romantic comedy starring Tony Kelly, Caoimhe O’Malley, Geraldine McAlinden
Apart from the on-screen talent, a group of dedicated individuals worked very hard behind the scenes, and as a result the film won a ‘Learning on Screen’ premier award. Needless to say the sound recording was a big part of its success
