How Noiseless Props Are Made For Movies And TV Shows | Movies Insider

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.

@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!

@Patriot 03 which become exceedingly more difficult when having many different layers of noise, and overlaps in them. You will most definitely also end up with losses either way. It's not like it magically knows what sounds you want to keep and what not. A lot easier to lessen the work beforehand. Same goes with real life props vs CGI.

I can tell you, as a boom operator, that sound engineer on the field is listening trough headphones that have incredibly ”colored” high frequencies, as almost all modern headphones do, but colored is just nice way of saying sharp, spiky and it gets worse with higher spl or sound volume, so, as they listen to a live scene take very loud, to better spot artifacts with the microphone, cable or sounds around the scene, the ”under the mic shopping bag” will be louder than the speech and it will be in frequencies that these headphones boost, so it all makes it unbearable to listen to and follow your important job as a pro listener.

@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.

Recently I noticed in episodes of Home Improvement from the 90s that Jill come home from the grocery store with reusable cloth bags, long before it was common. I speculated it was a set decision to avoid the loud sound from regular paper bags. Now I feel this theory is confirmed! But I never thought of how many other things make horrible noises for the sound crew.

@Pixelator You are pulling a scenario in that was never implied in the comment you are replying to. They said nothing about "fixing it soon" or such, simply that something going wrong-- which is bound to happen eventually-- can make some people lambast folks for something that is working for the vast majority of the time. And sometimes things cannot necessarily be fixed swiftly. A firm could be doing their damndest to solve a problem, all hands on deck-- and the problem still might not be able to be instantaneously solved, and yet you'd call them "lazy" for doing their hardest and things simply being out of their control. Ironically, you have proven their point.

@Mardi Gammon that’s very true, I never thought abt it, although I would assume it’s mostly because these noises have been a part of our daily life, if we grew up with silent packaging we would never associate the product’s freshness w the sound that packagings do now, again, just assuming.

I do need this, but at the same time most brands put a lot of thought into packaging to make them sound a very particular way. From what I remember there are studies that look into the relationship between food and sound and the sounds we hear when eating can change how we perceive the taste/ freshness etc of a food. Can you imagine eating chips from a silent bag, or opening a can of soft drink without the noise?

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.

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.

​@DarkMoon689 I hate those thing, usually it is not the show itself but the broadcaster is terrible, they boost the sound volume of the show but didn't check what happen; when it's a silent scene they boost the background sound so that you can hear annoying crackling of paper, plastic, and traffic.

It takes a lot of work to immerse the viewer in the film. To make it look like you're a participant in the scene there is a lot of detail that needs to be correct in order to trick you brain, all it takes is a small crack in the illusion and your brain will go "something isn't right here". Here's an example. Place an object close to you, like a foot/30cm away and look at it. While looking at it, take note of what's happening in your peripheral vision. It's blurry right? Your brain does that to focus you on your target, historically some prey you want to catch. When watching a dialogue scene, notice that the background of the character is blurred. Since your brain relies on depth of field (i.e. distance of objects from you) to add the blur, when you're looking at a flat screen it won't add it itself, so to preserve the feel of being in the scene, the aperture of the camera lens is set in such a way that it replicates the blur your brain would add in real life. Now when it comes to sound, your brain does a lot of subconscious filtering. If you were to focus and take note of everything happening around you, you'd be disoriented all the time. For example, if you're at a restaurant, can you follow the conversation of the table next to you? Or hear the sound of children laughing on the other side of the dinning hall? The grandfather clock ticking away, cutlery scraping the plates, occasional shouts from the kitchen? Or do you just focus on what your dinner partner is saying and everything else becomes a mumble? Your brain filters all this information out automatically depending on what your eyes are focusing on. In order to immerse you in the world, it's important that the loudest sound is the one that is most significant and requires your attention in that moment. A microphone is a dumb device, it will pickup everything at their natural volume, and it is down to the post-production mixer to 'filter' all the natural sounds in the same way your brain would naturally. And to do that, it is important to isolate the sounds so they can be manipulated later. Hence why the props in big production films are made to be as quiet as possible, so they can be added later by the Foley artist. I work as a sound recordist and boom operator, so if you have any questions or are curious about a workflow on a film set, ask away. I had to train my hearing to pay attention to all the little nuances of everyday life, because during a take (an 'attempt' of shooting a scene) it is vital that I detect anything that may impact post-production and decide whether it's usable or not.

@Mace my mom has worked in the film industry for 12ish years and I've done a few odd jobs on set and we have that same exact issue. 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.:-)

@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 TRshow, 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.:-)

The trick here is that they don't want the props to mask the dialogue, so in post production those sounds are edited back in. The result is a good balance between "touch-sounds" and dialogue - you will still hear the intended sound of the props!

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've never thought about that before, but I guess the beauty is the details that we don't notice bc someone did their job. also, would it be possible to use clear jello instead of silicone? I guess it wouldn't float

I remember a professor once told me "Background sound in a movie is like salt in a soup: you can always add it in later but you sure can't take it out if it's already mixed in."

@StealthRobin Right? One time I had to edit a video where they had been shooting under the flight path of a local airport. I just about pulled my hair out. Luckily someone had the foresight to record some wild lines on site, but we still had to call in actors for ADR work

Shows how many vital jobs there are on film sets that aren't actors/directors. The people currently striking are the ones getting bad pay and insane hours to do all the little things that add up to a movie making money for the people at the top.

And here all my life I was just thinking mics cut a lot of noise and were just directional picking up their voices and would later be mixed with background noise to seem more natural. Never even thought props were being made silent, but I did question some of the quality, color and size of a LOT of bags in a lot of tv and movies. Like why it was just slightly off but I couldnt pin point it.

I remember going to Universal Studios when I was fairly young and went on a studio tour and remember being shown Foley and my mind was blown. It's incredible to think about all the layers of movie magic that it takes to produce what we see.

Also, if you look in the background of sitcoms especially., when you see people applauding such as a party scene, or large group scenes, If the main cast is talking while this is happening... Notice the movements of the extras. Their hands never touch each other. They basically mimic clapping just so the sound of an actual applause doesn't interfere with dialogue.

I’ve worked in the prop department for many years and this isn’t as common as you think! You very occasionally need to make “soundless props” it’s often much more important to make “soft” versions of props and “breakaways” . still interesting however

Gotta say the people working in the ‘back’ are the unsung hero’s sometimes to make the entertainment we love into what it’s is. Like I’m amazed cause I never thought about that and I’m really sensitive to sounds. It’s so cool.
