A Foley Artist

by WANG Wan-jo

From filming site to post-production studio; from dubbing, music scoring, sound effects, to the final mixing, A Foley Artist follows HU Ding-yi, the only well-trained Foley artist in Taiwan. This film traces the history of sound making in Taiwanese films. It starts out as a biography of master HU, and extends further to a broader view of the Chinese-language film industry, attempting to rediscover and record both historic and future developments.
