Jonathan Bruce is one of New Zealand's most prolific foley artists / editors. His experience has seen him working in the foley and SFX departments on hundreds of episodes of US, UK & NZ television, scores of feature films, dozens of documentaries and countless short films.
From 2013 Jonathan spent 2 years working in Los Angeles. The time he spent there was fairly evenly split between learning as much as possible from some of the most established foley walkers and mixers in the industry ..and drinking west coast IPA and eating bowls of vegan ramen.
He returned to Auckland, New Zealand in mid 2015 to begin work in the foley department on the popular Starz series; Ash vs Evil Dead. He has lectured on the art and craft of foley at UCLA and is part of the NZ S.A.E Creative Industries Advisory Committee, who helps shape the curriculum of their students. Now, quite far into his fourth decade he has completely given up on following popular music and social events and endeavours to continue honing his craft in foley and SFX to a fine point.
