What you'll do

Explore the magic of horror sound effects with me Adam, a 30 year 4-time Emmy nominated Hollywood Foley Artist, currently working for major studios: Disney, Netflix, Warner Bros, Marvel. And I've just finished work on Zack Snyder's upcoming zombie epic- Army of the Dead at Sony.

Coming to you from my Foley studio in Los Angeles. This is where I've recorded Foley sounds for dozens of episodes of big TV shows: Atlanta, Orange is the New Black, Glow, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, New Girl, and many more.

We'll start with a quick talk about the unique world of Foley and its importance in TV and film. I'll explain how it's recorded, when it's used, and why you always hear Foley in every TV show and Movie. And I'll tell you why it’s the coolest job in the world!

Then I'll show you various props I've used in Hollywood horror films and TV shows! Like my stun-gun prop used in the Purge TV show, the shoes I'm using for footstep sounds on Marvel's upcoming Morbius! My chains and handcuffs I used in The Collector, the machete I used on Pulse, the knife I used on Lost, and more!

Finally, you'll watch me record live Foley to creepy horror clips. Learn how we layer sounds to make scenes more scary, chilling or gory. Like bone breaks, zombie deaths, worms! It's messy and gross, but I think you'll love this spooky peek behind the scenes of Hollywood magic!

Truly amazing and interesting experience. Adam was an incredibly engaging host, and I am in awe of his creativity and technique. My mother-in-law is a horror film buff, and she simply adored this experience. Highly recommended!

This was a really interesting experience. I will never look at movies the same way. Adam was really engaging and fun. I did this experience with my niece who is interested in studying film. We both had a great time! Thank you Adam!

Amazing experience and nothing like I imagined. Full of surprises and an absolute new Halloween tradition. Adam is one of the few foley artists in the world and chances are you’ve enjoyed his art if you’ve ever watched a movie. This is a must do experience

I cannot say enough good things about this experience. Adam was fun, entertaining, personable, and has a real passion for his job. He was open to all of my questions and gave thoughtful answers. It was great insight into Foley artistry and could not have been from a better guide. Book this immediately!
