Film: March of Happiness (天馬茶房)

A Foley Artist

A Foley Artist 擬音

Taiwan | 2016 | 100 minutes | Documentary | Mandarin (English subtitles)
Director: WANG Wan-Jo Cast: HU Ding-Yi

Description

An eye-opening portrait of legendary foley artist Hu Ding-yi, who witnessed the evolution of Taiwanese cinema from his recording studio over the past four decades.

This documentary turns the spotlight on an overlooked component of filmmaking: the art of foley through the perspective of Taiwan’s most experienced master, Hu Ding-yi. Hu has worked tirelessly for decades in his studio, manually recreating diegetic sounds (sounds whose source are visible on screen) using his large collection of everyday objects.

Through the artisan’s eyes, Wang Wan-jo’s timely documentary looks back at the golden age of Taiwanese cinema and examines the new dynamics of the Greater China film industry. Hu received the Lifetime Achievement prize at the 2017 Golden Horse Awards.
