Foley artists are in charge of managing the audio quality of the film. They add color and depth to the audio by either infusing additional sound effects or delicately controlling the volumes of the audio according to the tone and the context of each sequence.
Foley artists consider their work successful and well-executed when audiences fail to pick out sounds that seem unnatural or ‘off key’ to the film. As a result, they need to clearly know the texture of the floor, the gender, weight, and emotion of a character, in order to emulate the sound of the character walking as realistically as possible. We hear from foley artist Jung Ji-soo who shares the experience of how a perfectionist pursues creating authentic sounds that suit the scenes using all the given props.
