An opportunity to experience and learn about the art and practice of Foley, illustrated with clips, demonstrations and anecdotes from one of the UK’s leading sound practitioners.
Jack Stew trained and had a successful career as an actor for several years. First introduced to the world of film and television sound whilst working in a London post-production studio, he became fascinated by the potential in bringing characters to life through sound.
Jack has subsequently carved out a successful 30-year career in Foley and contributed to hundreds of films and animations including Batman, The Wrong Trousers, Twelve Monkeys, Sexy Beast, Bridget Jones’s Diary, Stardust, Sweeny Todd, Hellboy 2, An Education, Never Let Me Go, Shame, Frankenweenie, Trance, and The Monuments Men.
In 2008, Jack won the prestigious Motion Picture Sound Editors Golden Reel Trophy for his work on Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire.
