Interview: Foley Master Bastien Benkhelil

I’ve been yelling about the dead-serious importance of having great foley in everything from your short films to wedding videos for years. The trouble is, although in the MZed Pro Member Education I show you how to do it yourself, sometimes the intricate stuff needs to be done by a pro. But where the HECK do you find one?

Well, thanks to our good friend Michael Lehmann Boddicker, we were introduced to Foley Master Bastien Benkhelil who has done incredible foley work for us on more than one production.

In this video, I interview him in his North Hollywood, CA studio. He tells-all about what it’s like to do foley, what matters and why it’s so difficult.
