Joanna, or Fang as she is known in the studio, is Alchemy Post Sound’s second Foley artist. Fang has performed Foley on dozens of award wining documentaries, television shows, interactive media, and feature length films.
An alumni of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Joanna studied every facet of filmmaking and post production under sound editor Marsha Moore McKeever, production mixer Chat Gunter, cinematographer Gordon Arkenberg, and screenwriter Daniel Stiepleman. She fell in love with Foley during her time at NYU and began apprenticing under lead Foley artist Leslie Bloome immediately after graduating with honors in 2013. Through her Foley sounds, she has had the privilege of making pasta for Aziz Ansari, texting a flirtatious message to Anthony Weiner, chugging beers with Nick Jonas, popping pills for Nurse Jackie, combating Mexican drug cartels, and crashing a bus for Ira Glass.
In 2016, she became the first openly transgender woman to win a Primetime Emmy for her work on Cartel Land. When she’s not in the studio, she can found writing poetry, playing her Telecasters, or advocating for transgender rights.
