Sure, the sun might not make a particular noise, but the ambient sounds of rainfall and breezy blusters certainly do. Sound design and Foley isn’t all about footsteps or horror movie gore sounds. Great sound design captures the environment a film or video is shot in. This includes paying close attention to the atmospheric and meteorological conditions. In other words, the weather!
Since the weather is a fantastic vehicle for pathetic fallacy, it’s a story telling opportunity not to be missed. If you live in the UK, you will be all too familiar with the sound of rain. Falling droplets never fail to summon a sense of sadness and misery in narratives. Brooding storms tend to hint at oncoming chaos and tragedy.
However, if you’re working on a film project, or even a short story you’ll share on YouTube, it can be difficult to capture weather sounds. Creating your own SFX is a fun thing to do, but it’s also time-consuming and requires some equipment and knowledge. That’s why we’ve put together this collection for you!
