Watch more with these video collections:

Buzz Moran of the What’s that, Buzz YouTube channel takes us on a field trip to find out what interesting sounds you might be able to create in a hardware store. How do those sounds turn into sound effects for other kinds of things?

Listen for robots, woodpeckers, cars, doorbells, music, and more. Watch how a foley artist transforms everyday things into other everyday things. Then experiment to start making sounds of your own.
