This weekend I went and brought my daughter to see Gnomeo & Juliet.
It was a well done flick. The animation was great, lots of laughs for adults as well as kids and so on, great performances by the voice actors and some awesome cameos (Hulk Hogan and Ozzy Osbourne, how awesome!) but what really caught me was the foley.
Instead of using traditional footsteps they actually used the materials the characters were made out of. ie: in regards to foot steps; ceramic and/or concrete for the Gnomes, what sounded like metal rods for the Flamingo and etc. It was a great touch that really brought it all to life for me. The last thing I was expecting when going to see this was such a standout foley performance. My only gripe is that I wish there were more of it in there, which I'm sure it was... but it was sometimes mixed a little too low for my tastes.
Does anyone know who the foley artist was on that? There isn't one listed on imdb. Only the recordist was listed.
Can anyone name any other examples of your favorite foley that stands out above the rest?
