THE SOUND OF STORY: LOUISE BROWN
PART OF BRIGHTON'S CINECITY FILM FESTIVAL
17 & 18 NOVEMBER 2015
AN EXPLORATION OF SOUND AND MUSIC IN STORYTELLING
Foley artist and sound editor Louise Brown will give a workshop at The Sound of Story 2015: two days of talks, screenings and workshops that explore the creative potential of sound in the storytelling process.
The Secret Art of Foley
This workshop offers an exciting opportunity to learn about and experience the intriguing art and practice of foley. Led by experienced foley artist Louise Brown, the session will be illustrated with clips, demonstrations and anecdotes, with a chance for participants to try their hand at creating sound effects for the big screen.
ABOUT LOUISE BROWN
While studying for her degree in Music Technology at the London College of Music and Media, Louise Brown first became aware of the art of Foley and was instantly attracted to its encapsulation of performance, practicality and emotional intelligence. She started her career in advertising and corporate films, winning a BIMA award for best sound on LG’s ‘Behind the Picture’ campaign in 2009, before being drawn towards performing guerrilla Foley on short films and indie features. In 2010, Louise joined Creativity Media as their Foley Editor and in-house Foley Artist.
During her career, Brown has worked on more than thirty films and broadcasts as Foley Editor and Foley Artist, including Moshi Monsters: The Movie, Anuvahood, Plastic, Honeytrap (produced and directed by Cat Cooper and Rebecca Johnson, both Guiding Lights alumna), Damascus Cover and The Incident by Jane Linfoot (a former participant of the BFI Shorts scheme at Lighthouse). Since becoming an independent artist and editor, she has worked with a range of post production facilities, and has branched out into artistic collaborations and web filmmaking.
