I am working on a short that is mostly slow motion (shot MOS). Not severely, but enough to give it a surreal quality. This is opening the door for a lot of sound design moments, which is great, but I am having a little trouble in places.
There is a moment when the main character is walking and distracted. CITY EXT - We hear a cacophony of "inner thoughts" and he steps into traffic and a person grabs him before he is struck by an oncoming car. The thoughts are sucked away and the character is back to reality. The problem is that the footage is still slowed down at this moment. So there is now a ton of sync that I feel should happen, but just plain foley isn't working.
I am trying to create something natural in these moments, and I feel like I am overplaying the pitched down, soaked in reverb slow motion effect.
If anyone can point me in the right direction or just brainstorm with me, that would be AWESOME!
