The Real Motel Life Trailer

The Real Motel Life is a documentary short inspired by the book The Motel Life by Willy Vlautin. It is a living video portrait of Reno, Nevada. Through the intimate interviews of it's residents, both permanent and temporary, we dive into a transient city that still hasn't bounced back from the recession.

Our selection of characters range from Toni, the "adult entertainer" who works out of her motel room, to Audrey, an ex-Reno cop trying to raise her three sons in a safe environment, and Ron, a friendly motel lifer who enjoys drinking alone in his own room. They all end up living in motels for different reasons, but each maintain a very positive outlook on their future.

ACTORS OF SOUND

It’s hard to miss the explosive sound effects that are so present in film today, but ever wonder what a movie would sound like if you couldn’t hear background sounds such as footsteps, clothes rustling, floors creaking, snow crunching, glasses breaking etc? When directors shoot a film, they are only concerned with capturing the actor’s voice. Nothing else. So, when it comes to the edit, the soundtrack feels unnaturally quiet and things don’t sound like they’re supposed to. Which is where the Foley artist comes in – to make the film sound “real”.

Actors of Sound is a documentary film about Foley art and the artists that re-create and perform these sounds for film and TV. Interviews with Foley artists, Foley editors, sound supervising editors and directors will examine every facet of their craft, dramatizing the impact that technology and digital sound libraries are having on foley, possibly making one of the oldest crafts in the motion pictures industry extinct one day.
