Hello. I’m Danny, and I’m a Foley Artist. Based in Manchester, I use an ever-growing collection of props to build bespoke soundscapes in sync to picture. I quite literally fell feet first into this mystical craft, and I haven’t been able to look back since.
Originally I trained as a musician, composing, performing, and producing music primarily as a percussionist, but with a passion for creating ambient guitar loops and generative soundscapes. I stumbled across the world of foley while studying Music Production at the University Of Central Lancashire. I immediately fell in love with the craft. It has since become a genuine passion for me to hone and develop my skills as an artist and editor. As I embark on this journey, I hope to grow as a Foley Artist and as a Post-Production Sound Engineer, expanding my Dialogue Editing, Sound Effects Editing, Sound Design, and Mixing capabilities.
I’m a regular collaborator with Freshrb, in particular on their Silent Elephant Projects. Producing sounds for Short Films and Documentaries that raise awareness for marginalized health conditions. In 2019, I officially joined the team as an Audio Production Consultant. I oversee a project’s soundscape throughout each stage of its production. In my role, I’m responsible for capturing location sound and field recordings alongside a plethora of audio post services.
Four facts about me:
- When I’m not recordings sounds, I’m most likely flailing around on a football pitch. I play as the goalkeeper in my local Sunday league team.
- With a lot of help from my Dad, I’ve built my own tuned percussion. So far we’ve created a slate lithophone and an oak marimba.
- I once ate an 8 scoop ice cream in one sitting while travelling around Tokyo. Each scoop was a different flavour (Strawberry, Coffee, Milk, Chocolate, Matcha, Banana, Grape, and Ramune Soda), and they were all amazing.
- I hope to one day have a sausage dog. Either named Richmond or Frank (short for Frankfurter).
