Some objects, like paper bags, ice cubes, and pool balls, make an unexpected amount of noise. This can be a big problem on set, as any of these unwanted sounds can get in the way of dialogue. To ensure the sound team gets the best sound possible, the prop team will create silent versions of real products. Prop master Scott Reeder replaced loud pool balls with much quieter painted racquetballs for bar scenes in shows like "Friday Night Lights." Meanwhile, Tim Schultz of Prop TRX uses vinyl and fabric to make quieter versions of grocery bags, sandwich bags, and cellophane, as seen on "Entourage," "Mike & Molly," and "The Kominsky Method." Reeder and Schultz showed us how they found quiet alternatives to some of the loudest props out there.

@Razor Ramon wow. dude, I've been done with this dumbass conversation for quite some time. but, ok, fine then. if chips fall on a floor, then, at that point, it clearly doesn't matter what receptacle they were originally in. since they were obviously no longer in said receptacle. also, while the bag may have a smaller opening that prevents more spillage due to random dumbfuckery, the bowl doesn't require uncomfortable hand contortions to achieve clean, silent snacking success. so, again, the bag changes nothing. there, I saved you a whole thirty seconds of what could be barely be called critical thinking. I wouldn't want you to get too many wrinkles in that grey matter.

As a musician who records vocals and as an amateur sound engineer, this just hits so close to home. I remember being 13 and walking into record for my first time on a professional microphone, getting halfway through my first take and seeing the engineer smiling and laughing outside while talking to my brother. I thought I sounded terrible. He buzzed thru into the booth on my headphones and said “that was great man. Now this time, take the bag of nickels out of your pockets.” 😂 my keys and change could be heard on the playback. Thanks for unlocking a memory! Great video.

I've often wondered why many prop bags of chips look so off. Overly smooth, the opening is too round, etc. They look a little too obviously like props. I always assumed it was just part of the process of making them as one-offs that weren't worn in enough or something but this makes far more sense.

Okay that explains why movies and shows with smaller budgets sounded so different to me. Hearing heal clicks, scuffs, bags and all the other things that bigger budget productions can afford to silence. This makes so much more sense now. I was confused cuz you're filming with the same tools, why would it sound different. Now I know.

@Le-Johnny in real life your ears tunnel on the thing you want to hear as the world is 3d and your ears can kind of choose a direction, with high budget movies they simulate that very well for you so when dialogue is important, it's up front and clear, if sound effects are on focus you hear them loudly

@Marek Siciński most of the time you don’t even have access to proper on set mics. So yeah, it’s pretty bad. The audio sometimes is directly recorded by the camera. The camera ranging from everything between a Canon 300 to an iPhone 4 and everything around. The types of short films I’m talking about here are not near any big screen film. As I said the budget is usually nonexistent and the equipment is in the best of cases, borrowed from the local school/library/workshop. The people working on them go from qualified, to students to someone’s father or little sister.
Mika Hare

If you have a small budget of let’s say 0€ without accounting for travel/food/equipment. You probably need to either redo the audio from scratch, or be very mindful in the preproduction of what you can record and how you are gonna do it. Usually limiting it is better if you don’t have anyone who can make a sound-script and edit it or knows folley/dubbing in case you actually included dialogue, you madlad! You need to pre plan production/recording and post production. Both are important. If the film is complex enough the number of scripts needed to keep everything on track will increase. Also, to the directors of said 0€ short films, be mindful of your staff. Like no one is getting paid, but you know, let them live and be at least comfortable. You are not the next Kubrick, and even if you are, 12+ hour recording days should be off limits. And yes, it will take longer than you think it will. Pre planning is important, for every aspect of a film. Narrative films are more design based than art, meaning planning, budgeting etc. And a lot of the time, seeing what equipment is available and figuring out how you are gonna fix the bad audio issue. Once I stop being scarred by the last of these projects, courtesy of said “future Kubrick” I will probably resume working as occasional script/general assistant for everything. But for now I’m making 10€ budget student art films with “experimental music” and relaxing a bit. Wait, why did I tell you all of this?

I’ve actually always wondered how they did sound in some situations. I just assumed the audio would have to be dubbed in all cases but even if that was the case, I’m sure having noiseless props lends itself to concentration. Super cool stuff!

I Love this. I make props for use in theatre where mostly, sound is not such an issue. Nonetheless, the delightful skill and ingenuity of prop making to solve problems is key to my enjoyment. It also links interestingly to the 'fake' work carried out by 'boffins' and secret ops designers during WWII where specific dummy lookalike items had to be created for use by SOE and undercover personnel right under the noses of the enemy. Many of those clever souls were basically prop designers! I love this amazing work for film as shown here and the prop makers are 'unsung' (literally in this case!) heroes of the industry.

@Ande Leon Dialogue tracks still go through some clean-up (often quite a lot), but then the foley team recreates sounds like fabrics, footsteps, car doors, etc. to place exactly when you're SUPPOSED to hear them. This way, there's full control over the sound mix and where the audio focal point is at all times.

@thelithiumcat sometimes yes, they do that. But that takes a lot of time and sounds very strange without the associated foley so these props look like they’re created to save time.

@Mechanikal Bull speaking as an editor, the main reasons this is done are: 1. a take with a great performance being spoiled by prop noises overlapping the dialogue is incredibly frustrating and expensive. Background sound can be removed in post, but it's time-consuming and removing a lot of noise can degrade the quality of dialogue audio. 2. every shot in a movie is taken separately and edited together, so if the prop noise is 'baked in' to the take, and then you want to cut to a different take, but there's crinkly paper bag in the first one and not the second because the actor was holding it differently, that's going to be really hard to cover. When you take all that into account it actually is much easier to add background sounds in post!

Ours isn't with SFX, but just recognizing the same sets they always use when they shoot in Albuquerque, being like "it definitely was not snowing on this day" "this actor was a dick" "this actor wasnt even supposed to be here, she was CGI'd in" Definitely changes the way you consume media

@Maggie M Yup, it isn't impossible that I'll bump into some of yours along the way, with the invention of the Internet, the world really _is_ getting smaller, and everything can spread like a wildfire. And I'll agree, this conversation _does_ have that kind of "we're both stuck here waiting for the bus, we might as well kill the time together" feel to it.:-) I've worked on primarily Danish films, considering I'm Danish and all, but have made a few bits 'n bobs for productions in other countries as well, but I'd say that despite being half-way around the globe from you, I don't think we do things that much differently. Granted, the SFX niche in any country is inherently populated by crazy inventors, mad scientists, and people for whom it is just another day at the office when they order 2.000 rubber ducks, a drum of industrial-grade lube, 150 meters of rubber bands, and a spare set of machinegun barrels, so I'd say a conversation with an SFX dude from _anywhere_ would be just as interesting. And I'm also glad we had this conversation.:-)

Mace Yıl önce
@Maggie M The movie was the Danish movie "Brødre" by Susanne Bier, subsequently, there was a US version made aptly titled "Brothers", I haven't seen the US version, but I found the scene from the remake here on TRvid, I recall the scene in the original version as shorter and bloodier without being downright gory, but the desperation, hopelessness, helplessness and eminent regret are convincingly portrayed by the respective actors in both versions. I don't know if the US version is worth watching in full, but if they did a decent job of this scene, I reckon they did a decent job on the rest as well. As for you writing, and the reasons for why you did so, I can only say good job! If writing was what made a tough situation easier to deal with, then obviously you did a good thing for yourself, and if you even on top of whatever happened, managed to piece together something that had _that_ effect on him, I can only agree wholeheartedly, that you _should_ publish. Who knows, maybe there's a screenwriter hidden inside of you.:-)

@snakes As people have already noted above, mass production usually results in both reduced costs and increased availablity for everyone, so the product is more accessible. Often, products that are specifically helpful to disabled, chronically ill and neurodivergent people *need* to be used by others too for capitalism to deem them worthwhile to make. A good example is pre-chopped fruit and veg. This can be incredibly helpful for people with fine motor or fatigue issues, amongst other things (and there are other non-disability related needs and benefits for them too), but if no-one who didn't have those needs but just wanted to cook or eat a bit quicker bought them, they'd probably stop making them. Another example is wheelchair wheels Vs bicycle wheels - often very similar products, which should sell for similar prices, but because one is seen as a "specialised" product related to accessibility, the price is vastly inflated. Don't get me wrong, I get that things like schools banning sensory items because people who are using them just for fun are causing issues would be very frustrating and is something people should be mindful of. But the idea that mass interest increases cost and reduces availability is not usually correct.

I thought that those noises were usually removed in the ADR process. I read in a forum that ADR was used a lot on films, some even said that usually in the scenes the final audio was mostly recorded later. But watching this video seems like it's much preferable and common to capture and keep the real audio of the scene.

it probably a mix of both! having quieter props makes it easier for sound engineers and the foley people to go in and remove that small amount of noise rather than a large amount without messing up other audio recorded at the same time that they want to keep

No because you don't give anything about all they are to you is an opportunity to get likes on your youtube comments, I geuss because you're too much of a simpleton to make up something original

I only truly realized just how noisy all these everyday objects were when I tried to get ready for school while my college roommates were fast asleep... every open and close of any door/closet/drawer, every scooting of the chair or click of the keyboard, every turn of a doorknob and every creak of the bunk bed ladder, every rustle of clothing and bags...I could go on and on and on!

Without all the objects that sound different, video making is already a lot of work. I'm into a 3 year education for a few months now and it's a lot of work to make it catchy already, without all the silent items too. But I loooove making video's!

It's funny the amount of effort that goes into making these soundless props, considering the amount of, equally bizarre work that goes into adding the sound again later.

@shadowXXe and every single movie fucks that part up and adds sound effects that are louder than voices. On almost every single movie, be it marvel or whatever ambient sounds are always louder than voices and thats super annoying.

what is especially funny is that the music in movies is at 100% and the oh-so-important dialogue voice is at 40%

It's so funny how actors have to go into dressing rooms to take off their clothes, just so the costume designer can put them in clothes again!

I know that in movies usually most of the dialogue is recorded in a studio and it's not noticeable. like lord of the rings, most dialogue is from studio recordings after the actual filming and most people have no clue about that. but I guess in the end it's more about the budget and time available.

I would like to see a movie without sound props. We hear these noises everyday but still manage to talk and communicate with others with no problems. I guess it's the acoustics, would sound different when recorded and in theaters.

or they simply dub the voices ... like they do for English movies in Germany and France (and the ol' spaghettie westerns with English dubbing).. all that time and effort spent on silencing background noise instantly worthless because the actual recorded speach isn't used :D

lot of times in movies ( most ) dialogues are too quiet, while action scenes and music are too loud you need a volume knob at your hand all the time

@Get on the cross and don’t look back No thanks, I'll pass on getting self inflicted damage to my ventromedial prefrontal cortex. That's not a joke, science has literally established a link between religion and brain damage. See when people have brain damage they just keep typing the same silly comment over and over and over and over and over; like a broken record; on videos that have nothing to do with what they're talking about.

In fact, you can. If you have a layer of background noise before the spoken line, you can pass a noise reduction filter like ReaFIR or RNNoise.
