An Investigation into Plausibility in the Mixing of Foley Sounds in Film and Television

Document Thumbnail

This paper describes an experiment that tested the plausibility of a selection of post-production audio mixes of Foley for a short film. The mixes differed in the implementation of four primary audio mixing parameters: panning, level, equalization, and the control of reverberation effects. The experiments presented test subjects with mixes in which one of the four primary parameters was altered while the rest remained at levels deemed to conform to an “industry standard” reference mix that had been verified by an expert industry practitioner. Results show that there is a statistically significant affect on plausibility of using even slight dynamic variation of pan, level, and equalization control to enhance the perception of realism of Foley that move in a scene.
