How do you people record flip flop steps in foley? The usual technique for other kinds of shoes doesn't work, because of how the shoe interacts with the foot and the floor. Thanks for any help!
I had to do flip flop footsteps once, and it was pretty difficult. I had a square surface about 50cm x 50cm made of concrete to walk on (small surface). the tricks I had udsed for footsteps foley didn´t work... the only advice I can tell you is just put your headphones on, close your eyes and start walking (or what ever movement needed) looking for the sound you need. I remember I had to do some pushing with my toes in order to have the "flip flop" sound" and my movements were everything except walking. LOL I found that the flip flop works better if the size is bigger than your foot (just one size or so)
enjoy the foley!!
