Hey guys I have a class foley project coming up soon and I would like to know how to recreate/record the sound of: sneakers "squeaking" on the floor and glass breaking (like a window)
here are the restrictions: It has to be done in front of the class and there is only a limited amount of time (15 minutes)to set up the mics (the amount and type available tba) AND record the take/s. The scene must be 30 seconds long (like a radio play)
We have some time to practise/rehearse and synchronize our movements up until the day of the project in front of the class. So I'd like my group to be really on point with setting up the mics quickly and knowing exactly what each person (including myself) must do foley-wise. Therefore allowing us more takes, but the trick is we will have to choose the best take.
[still need to find out]
The recording is either:
Done by 1 person in our group (like controlling the faders/pan)
We have to physically move the foley away from the mic (to fade the level) and/or move the foley from left to right passed one the stereo mics we will be using.
NB: we will not be mixing what we record, like in the industry, our recordings will be given to a another unknown person to mix.
I want the the sneaker foley to take place over different surfaces like concrete, up a ladder or maybe grass. Solutions: I have a square concrete base umbrella stand roughly half a metre on each side will probably put a thick blanket underneath (prox effect) for the concrete surface. I can get a big military desert storm camouflage thing for the grass.
As it is in front of the class we can't leave too much of a mess so the window/glass breaking will be a hectic challenge how would I solve this?
