Colyer Heads Up Pinewood's Foley Division

Pinewood Studios Group has selected the UK's leading Foley mixer Ed Colyer to manage a new, dedicated division within their Post Production department.
Having recorded and mixed sound at Shepperton Studios for nearly 20 years on a variety of acclaimed productions including numerous 'Bond' and 'Harry Potter' titles, 'Gosford Park', 'Cold Mountain', prominent TV dramas 'Band of Brothers', 'Inspector Morse' and more recently feature films '10,000 BC', 'Stardust' and 'Love in the Time of Cholera', Colyer has gained international recognition within the industry for his signature talent.
As Pinewood Group Head of Foley, Colyer will be responsible for defining the methodology and nature of the process to create a multi-purpose Foley facility.
His newly-appointed role will entail the specification of equipment, facilities, training and appointment of crew to expand the Group's Foley business within the UK and abroad.
Pinewood Group's Director of Post Production Bruce Everett commented: "With Ed's invaluable expertise and in-depth understanding of the process combined with our development plans for a new Foley centre early in 2008, we'll lead the way in setting new standards for this specialist skilled resource, pushing Britain's Foley offering to the forefront of the world arena."
Colyer said: "Incorporating two fully-floated theatres, an extensive array of props and an experienced, passionate team working within a dedicated environment equipped with the latest technology, Pinewood Studios Group will provide a premium yet competitive Foley service for both film and TV."
Currently comprising Kevin Tayler, Sandy Buchanan and Glen Gathard, Ed's Foley team will be overseen by Pinewood Group's Head of Sound, Robin O'Donoghue.
