The Foley stage adds depth and realism to filmmaking – more than the viewer will ever know! Because Foley artists do their work best, when it goes unnoticed. Yet without their brilliant artistry many a movie would feel uncomfortable for all its awkward silences.
Having the right tools at your disposal facilitates this process and enhances the quality of the outcome. After all, any added sounds need to integrate perfectly with the on-set soundscape as well as the actors’ real or re-recorded dialogue. Neumann microphones are often used in all of those stages, so why not use Neumann mics in the Foley studio as well? Neumann condenser microphones offer industry-leading sound quality. Thanks to their enormous dynamic range they will capture anything from the faintest ticking of a clock to a thunderous crash – without unwanted hiss or distortion. More recently, Foley artists have been discovering the benefits of Neumann’s headphones. The closed-back NDH 20, in particular, offers excellent isolation combined with a balanced sound and high wearing comfort.
