Footsteps Sound Effects Mud Field Vietnam

Recording footsteps sound effects in dirty muddy field in Vietnam!

These  footsteps sounds are a sound request for post production and I recorded these for one of my Canadian friends(Spoiler Alert: He was in the sound design team for movie Arrival and won an Oscar for best sound design) 

Of course I am happy to record such cool sounds so I packed my equipment drove around Hoi An. I came across several rice fields filled with water and mud but after watching all the hard working people in the rice fields  I decided not to record right there. 

The reason why, most fields are already prepared for the upcoming rice season and everything looks nice and prepared and I can’t just stomp around the fields and possibly destroy something. 

Another reason is that, after the fields are prepared, farmers spraying pesticides all over the fields and I am not sure how healthy that’s gonna be for me feet.
But why driving so far? I have a mud field next to our rented house I just saw it and found the perfect spot.
