BAFTA-winning Re-Recording Mixer George Foulgham is launching his new boutique venture – George Foulgham Soundscapes.
The audio post production company aims to provide support for film and TV productions – both documentary and drama – all the way from concept to the final mix.
Foulgham commented: “This is an exciting new chapter in my career. I’m really looking forward to getting involved with projects at the pre-production stage, where a lot of audio decisions are made without a voice from the ‘post’ world. Overseeing a project’s audio requirements from start to finish will make the whole process a lot more streamlined for our clients. Too often it’s clear from the final piece when the soundscape has been treated as an afterthought.”
In his 15 years as Head of Molinare’s factual audio sound department, Foulgham played a vital role in the success of many productions, including the Oscar-winning Man on Wire, which is widely regarded as a breakthrough in the factual documentary genre and which, on its way to the Academy Award for ‘Best Documentary’, collected the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and from BAFTA the Alexander Korda Award for ‘Best British Film’. Foulgham himself has garnered the ‘Best Sound’ BAFTA for Trawlermen, an RTS Craft & Design award for Fighting the War and six further BAFTA nominations.
Amongst other renowned productions supervised and mixed by Foulgham are Alex Gibney’s Citizen K, Orlando von Einsiedel’s and Joanna Natasegara’s Oscar-winning The White Helmets and Oscar- nominated Virunga, Ed Perkins’ Oscar-nominated Black Sheep, Lucy Cohen’s Kingdom of Us, Kevin Macdonald’s Sky Ladder: the Art of Cai Guo-Qiang, Alfred George Bailey’s Grierson-winning Show Me The Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall and Daniel Gordon’s BBC four-parter The Life and Trials of Oscar Pistorius.
