"Stratman chose scenes from one of the great sound-centric movies of all time, The Conversation... [because] she was interested in ... how [objects] have 'frozen sound potential' but also drawn to the power dynamics of how sounds control us." - Bryan Abrams, thecredits.org
OK short tackling foley work through example of redoing sound effects for 'The Conversation'. Walter Murch's sound design on that film was of course brilliant so this stands more as homage than anything else. Realistically foley work is no mystery when a quarter of one's dvd collection has an extra looking at this occupation.
A brief POV walkthrough of a Foley soundstage that aspires somewhat vaguely to equate the malleability of sound in film to the NSA's chilling big brother effect by way of Coppola's The Conversation. Conceptually a little flimsy (not sure there's much more to be said than "hearing is not believing") but very well executed... would be a great opening short for Berberian Sound Studio.
