Working with Hyperrealism truly opens the doors to different creative dimensions. This short clip starts with normal Foley of garage door latches closing, then a massive slam of the needle placement of the sewing machine telling us we have crossed back over to another world.
The pulling of the string is actually abstract scrapes from a cello. I had my composer, who collaborated with me, create multiple takes of abstract/experimental sounds on the cello, and this actually worked out perfectly for this scene.
As the sewing machine mashes on, it ends with a nice impact with a long reverb tail that fades. The credit rolls as this churning mechanical sound seems to be rolling the credits on its own.
