New York, NY (September 24, 2019)—The Foley team behind FX’s Fosse/Verdon, which garnered four Emmy Awards and 17 nominations, will participate in a discussion on Wednesday, October 16 at NAB Show New York at the Javits Convention Center.
The show’s Foley team, responsible for mimicking the patter of footsteps, the swish of costumes and the creak of floors, will offer insight on their craft in the session, “All About Fosse.” Post Magazine editor in chief Linda Romanello will moderate the discussion between Alchemy Post Sound lead Foley artist Leslie Bloome, lead Foley mixer Ryan Collison and Foley artist Joanna Fang.
“Foley sounds add depth to film and assist in further immersing audiences into the experience,” said Chris Brown, NAB executive vice president of conventions and business operations. “This unique session will reveal the unexpected methods behind creating enhanced ambient sound effects and the overall postproduction procedure that bring motion pictures to life.”
Bloome has worked as an independent Foley artist for nearly 30 years. Accumulating over 400 feature film, TV, animation and gaming credits, Bloome has been nominated for several MPSE Awards and won an Emmy Award for his work on Cartel Land. Leslie also performs live theatrical Foley, including on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Collison has worked with filmmakers such as Woody Allen, Darren Aronofsky and Wes Anderson. His credits include Midnight in Paris, Chicago, The Wire and The Wrestler. Previously, Collison worked as Foley mixer at Sound One in New York City.
Fang has performed Foley for countless films, documentaries, television shows, live theater, and experimental media. In 2016, she was recognized by the Television Academy as the first openly transgender woman of color to win a Primetime Emmy for her sound work on A&E’s Cartel Land.
Linda Romanello is Post Magazine's managing editor. With more than 20 years of industry experience, she is a veteran of the professional post and broadcasting markets and has held key editorial roles with several industry publications.
