At the Skywalker Sound Lab, Sometimes You Gotta Think Like a Bunny
There’s a lot more to a movie’s audio than lines of dialogue or a musical score. There’s also the sound that everyday objects make: footsteps, spoons clinking against coffee mugs, the scrape of a chair leg on the floor. Those are the province of Foley artists, who recreate those diegetic sounds, and then add them to a film or TV show’s audio track during post-production—and there might be no better place to be a Foley artist than at Skywalker Sound’s new Foley studio in Northern California. Since it opened in September, the crew has worked on Captain America: Civil War, Zootopia, and other projects; not only were they kind enough to open their doors to WIRED, but they gave us a crash course in sound magic so that we could lend our own (lack of) expertise to a movie scene.
