The Mist

Foley Artist and Foley Editor

Based on a story by Stephen King, Spike’s “The Mist” centers around a small town family that is torn apart by a brutal crime. As they deal with the fallout an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world, and in some cases, each other. Family, friends and adversaries become strange bedfellows, battling the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity as the rules of society break down.

NOTE: This series is not appropriate for all viewers.

My Perspective


I have seen other film adaptations of Stephen King’s “The Mist”. Each one reflects the issues of the day in a dark, terrifying mirror. The 1993 short was about corporate overreach, the 2007 movie was a government conspiracy, and this 2017 series focuses on mob mentality and human sexuality. That one story can be adapted so fluidly is a testament to King’s supremacy among horror genera authors.


TV audio post production is different from film; the schedules are compact and the dynamic range is smaller. This means that the foley I produced had to be created quickly and be able to cut through a dense mix. It was a challenge, but we delivered on time and on budget. I am very grateful to the people at WildFire Sonic Magic for hiring me and providing a guiding hand.
