Reminds me of when I had to do foley for someone blinking their eyes... or someone cleaning their glasses with a microfiber cloth... or my favorite, gripping a pen tightly.

I once had a client ask me to create a serene atmosphere which included the sounds of butterflies. For a radio spot. Boy did I feel silly chasing butterflies around while toting that Otari 5050.

I've just seen some clips from the new 3:10 to Yuma.
Man, I'd love to do a Western movie. The backgrounds are so quiet, that the little things we mention in this thread really can shine out.

I love it when they spot foley cues for things like, "scratch nose" for a secondary character about 60 feet away in a disco.

"Background footsteps on carpet" Location, nightclub with rock band playing.

Next time you go to a carpeted restaurant with background music playing, tell me if you hear footsteps. Now take away the footsteps and just leave the ambient noise...do you hear background footsteps?

Ah, but some directors have bionic ears. That's why they're the directors.

I was once asked to foley the sound of perfume dissipating in air after it was released by a perfume sprayer/atomizer.

I had the good fortune to work with, and be tutored by a great foley artist/master. We did many films together. Every scene in every film was an adventure and a lesson learned.

In one particular film we foleyed the Montana Land Rush. The scene lasted nearly 15 minutes. We foleyed everything you could imagine included covered wagons racing by, tipping over, and cartwheeling across the ground. We did horses from the FG to the horizon. Horses and wagons crossing rivers, horses down ravines, horses falling, you name it.

We were over 60 tracks wide on the Record Fullcoats before we transferred to stripe for the foley editors I no longer remember the edited track count, but do know it was large! My Supervising Sound Editor was not a happy puppy when he was heading into the foley premix. That film was one of the greatest foley experiences of my career.

Silly cues still pay the bills. Foley the sound of signing the check!

I was totally busted starting chit-chat with the make-up girl in the next room. Asked her for a date. The set mics heard everything. Almost got fired.
