Three of the industry’s top Foley professionals — Alyson Dee Moore (Foley Artist, Warner Bros.), MaryJo Lang (Foley Mixer, Warner Bros.) and Andy Malcolm (Footsteps Studio) — join us to discuss career highlights, the origins of their craft, and what it's like to work with directors such as David Fincher, Terrence Malick, and Christopher Nolan.
