• How to Use Foley to Make Your Video Sound Great

  • This tutorial from the Dolby Institute and Corridor Digital has tips and techniques to help you record all those additional sounds that will make your video sound like a big-budget production.

    • The Art of Foley

      As an independent filmmaker, how can you craft DIY Foley on the cheap in order to fill your sound track with specific detail and make your project come to life? 

      How do you clean up bad production recordings?

      These and other topics will be tackled here by the Dolby® Institute in a series of tutorial videos produced in conjunction with Corridor Digital, who keep their 3 million YouTube subscribers enthralled and entertained with videos like Minecraft: The Last Minecraft (28 million views) and Superman with a Go-Pro (15 million views).

      "We met Corridor directors Sam Gorski, Niko Pueringer, and producer Jake Watson when we collaborated with them on the sound design and 5.1 mix of their video The Poacher,"  explained Glenn Kiser, the director of Dolby Institute. "They had already done a series of educational videos on their own YouTube channel on topics like picking the right microphone for your production recordings. I knew Sam and Niko would be great partners to help us tell a technical story with style and some humor." 

      Our first video in collaboration with Corridor is on DIY Foley, with tips and techniques to record all those additional sounds that will make your video sound like a big-budget production.
