Recording footstep sound effects in a muddy field in Vietnam

I was excited to record these sounds for a friend who was on the sound design team for the award-winning film Arrival.

For this recording, I explored different areas in Hoi An and came across several rice fields filled with water and mud, but out of respect for the hardworking farmers preparing for the upcoming season, I didn’t want to record there. Besides, I noticed pesticides being sprayed, which made me feel it would be better to avoid the fields altogether.

Fortunately, just down the street from the home we were renting, I found an open field of mud! I took off my shoes and walked up and down the field, noticing a mudhole that I used to simulate fast and slow footsteps. The end result was a high-quality sound library that my friend could use for his project, and now you can download these royalty-free footstep sound effects too!

Whether you’re working on a creative project, audio production, film, or video game, these mud footsteps sound effects are perfect for your post-production and sound design needs. So, have fun with it and take your project to the next level with these unique sound effects!
