Joanna Fang is an Emmy award winning Foley artist and sound editor.  An alumna of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Joanna fell in love with sound design and Foley during her studies at Tisch and after graduating with honors in 2014, she started apprenticing and performing with Foley artist Leslie Bloome at Alchemy Post Sound in Peekskill, NY.  Seven years and hundreds of credits later, Joanna transitioned into game development and has since been hired by Sony Playstation where she co-leads their new Foley department and is their first in-house Foley Artist in over 15 years.  

 

Through her Foley sounds, she has had the privilege of slinging webs as Spider-Man, fighting misogynists in Promising Young Woman, and even crashing a bus for Ira Glass on This American Life. Her Foley art spans across several media from traditional narrative films, documentaries, and television series to triple A games, virtual reality and experimental pieces. In 2016, she was recognized by the Television Academy as the first openly transgender woman of color to win a Primetime Emmy for her Foley and sound editorial work on A&E's Cartel Land.
