With the future of Sounds Dangerous in limbo and the fact it hasn't been open to guests since about Easter, I wanted to showcase part of the SoundWorks area this week. You may recall SoundWorks was the post-show following Sounds Dangerous where guests could interact at various kiosks to learn more about how sound for movies and television was made. Along the wall were a lot of actual props that were used in real production to make some of the sound effects we would later hear in the final production. Below each prop is the name of the prop and which production it was used in.
These instruments hearken back to Disney's initial attempt back when Monster Sound Show was still in the Studios to not only educate guests on how foley artists created their movie magic, but to immerse guests in the movie making process by allowing them to create their own sound effects. Even when the attraction became Sounds Dangerous, SoundWorks remained and with it these props that not only educate, but are props from some classic productions.
