RECORDING FOLEY SOUNDS
A person on this blog wanted me to go a little further in recording sound. I thought it would be a good idea to show how foley sounds are made and how they are used. I recorded this foley sound from a fan in a house. It would be more ideal to record in a dedicated sound room for foley recording, but I used this simple house fan for the example.The footage is from youtube that had people talking while they were recording the helicopter. I just took the original sound out and replaced it with the foley sound from the house fan. I hope this can shine a little more light on recording sound.
PROTECTING YOUR GEAR
An inexpensive alternative to the Pelican case
The Pelican brand name has made a very good name for itself in protecting it's content once locked up inside. These cases are made very well. For those of us who are on tight budgets, we tend to look for much more inexpensive gear and cases, providing that these items meet or come close to the more expensive items. Here are two case both with the same dimensions is size, but with a different price tag. The blue case is a Porta Brace Hard case Model# PB-2400 Price $69.99 and The Black case is The Apache 3800 case bought at Harbor freight Price $39.99
Both cases are rugged and come with the foam. It is important to protect your gear. I feel very comfortable putting my cinema lenses in the Apache 3800 case. Once the foam was cut to fit these lenes the lenses held up nicely as we have been taking them on film shoots for our film Electronic Crack Film
We would love to hear about your alternative to inexpensive gear or cases.
