John started recording and performing Foley back in
1985 working for the South Australian Film Corporation. He went
freelance as a Foley artist in 1987, starting his own company in
The FeetnFrames studio is set in remote rural South Australia. The remoteness gives them a great advantage as his team can easily record outside when required. With great recording locations nearby, they are able to do location foley when the film requires it and sounds that cannot be created with the same quality in the studio.
John's earlier projects include Foley walker work on Jane Campion's The Portrait of a Lady and Peter Weir's The Truman Show. Other Foley artist work included: Oscar and Lucinda, Babe: Pig and the City, Lantana, and Danny Deckchair.
John's diverse mix of projects for FeetnFrames have included: King Kong, The World's Fastest Indian, December Boys, Australia, Mary and Max, The Lovely Bones, The Hobbit films, The Sapphires, and 100 Bloody Acres.
More recent Foley projects for John's team include: Chef, The Lego Movie, The Babadook, The Water Diviner, Mad Max: Fury Road, and the upcoming film, Regression.
