Storyline

A single-shot portrait of the Foley process, revealing multiple layers of fabrication and imposition. This choreographed documentary moves us circularly into, through and back outside a Foley stage in Burbank, CA. While portraying sound artists at work, the typically invisible support mechanisms of filmmaking are exposed, as are, by extension and quotation, governmental violations of individual privacy.

A very technically impressive short
21 April 2014 | by Lowbacca1977See all my reviews

I found the structure of this short to be... interesting, although I'm not sure I see the full concept that it was designed for. The most impressive part is that it appears to be all one single shot, although I have some suspicions as to where it might have involved clever editing, but I can't tell for sure. In that shot, it does an entire exploration of the foley process, but approaching it from a more unusual manner. The camera comes in to the building and observes the foley process in progress.

There does seem to be something said by the camera's presence, unannounced and silently observing, with no signs that it's been noticed, while at the same time the scene being given sounds is from The Conversation, a film entirely focused around people being observed without their awareness. On one hand, I feel like I may be reading too much into this, but on the other hand, it also has a dedication to Snowden, and I'm unsure if that only represents a sort of solidarity, or if that really is one large-reaching theme of the short.
