I’m excited to share this with you guys: part 1 of a series of Legend of Korra Book 1 foley demos. All the sound you hear, with the exception of dialogue, is foley. I urge you to listen with headphones or on a decent set of speakers. Look out for the other two parts coming soon!
EDIT: Quite a few people are curious about the bloodbending foley; we used cabbage and celery to get the twisty tensiony sound, and then I EQed the high frequencies out to make it sound more muffled and internal.
For the final mix, the foley was added to Ben’s bloodbending fx, and if I’m not mistaken, he also used veggies, combined with some other stuff. We could have made a bloodbending soup with all that produce!
We posted this back in the day on Korra Nation, but strolled upon it and thought it deserved another glory day. How cool are these Mako and Bolin concepts? Amazing to see how our favorite brothers have evolved.
Here is the back cover art for the Book 1 DVD/Blu-ray coming out July 16th, 2013, or at least, this was how I intended it to look. Tenzin and Lin had to be moved elsewhere to make room for type and graphics. Drawn by Ryu Ki Hyun, colored be me.
