What you'll do

* Awesome beyond my expectations! - Kristina*

Coming to you from my Foley studio in Los Angeles, this experience immerses you into the amazing and unknown world of Hollywood Sound FX and Foley. Here I've recorded Foley for many TV shows: Atlanta, Fargo, It's Always Sunny in Philly, New Girl, and more. I'm now working on the Sony film lot: Justice League, Venom 2, Morbius, Call of Duty, The Good Dr..

I'm Adam, a 4-time Emmy nominee, and I've been doing this for 30 years!

* Featured in The New York Times and Conde Nast Traveler!*
* 5-Star reviews from Netflix, Facebook, Apple, Google, Lyft, Chipotle, Intel, Spotify and more! *

Be amazed as I show you how Foley Artists record sounds to picture. Find out how we enhance scenes and fool audiences with our tricks. Listen to, and view my props and shoes used in 100's of TV shows and movies like Jumanji 2, Lost, The 100, Seal Team, Orange is the New Black and more. Hear some Hollywood stories and find out how the art of Foley began! And find out how I got so lucky!!

So join me as I pull back the curtain on my Hollywood craft!

We decided to join Adam's session as a team event and must say it was worth every penny. Not only did we learn a lot about the work of a Foley Artist but Adam, thanks to his years-long experience, had a lot of insights and trivia to share that none of us knew before. We really enjoyed the interactive parts as well and Adam made sure that no question was left unanswered. If there will be ever a part 2 on this, I'm sure we will join again!

Adam was fun and engaging in sharing alot of knowledge about the world of Foley, answered all our questions and made sure to keep the audience involved. Pretty fascinating insight into how sound in Hollywood works. We scheduled Adam for a team building event and it went really well. Highly recommend.

Booked this experience for a social bonding experience for work and I'm so glad we did. Adam really knows his stuff and was super great at not only interacting with everyone who was on the call, but answering our many questions. Our team loved learning about the work that Foley artists do, and learning about Adam's career and were pleasantly surprised at the many props and techniques Adam leverages to make Hollywood and TV sounds come to life. Super fun event. Definitely book this one for your entire group!

I guarantee you will learn something you didn’t know, your team/family will have a blast, and you will walk away smiling. You will have a new found appreciation for the hard work of the Foley artists in every movie and tv show you love. Adam is funny, knowledgeable, and entertaining too! What a wonderful silver lining to a pandemic in getting to meet someone like Adam!
