The Motion Picture Sound Editors (MPSE) will recognize veteran Foley artist John Roesch (pictured) with its 2013 Career Achievement Award, to be presented at the 60th MPSE Golden Reel Awards on February 17, 2013 in Los Angeles. Roesch is the first Foley artist to receive the MPSE Career Achievement Award.

He has contributed to more than 400 films in an illustrious career spanning more than three decades, and his credits include this past summer’s blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises as well as its predecessor The Dark Knight, all three films in the Matrix trilogy, and Inception.

“John Roesch is an outstanding craftsman,” says MPSE president Bobbi Banks. “As a Foley artist, John’s art is so subtle that movie-goers may not recognize it, and yet it is an essential element in creating the environment, atmosphere and mood of films. Even after 30 years, he continues to innovate and push the boundaries of his craft. The MPSE takes great pride in saluting his work and career.”

Roesch is the recipient of two MPSE Golden Reel Awards, for The Dark Knight and The Matrix, alongside more than a dozen nominations. He has worked on 16 films that have won Academy Awards for Best Sound or Best Sound Editing.

Roesch studied filmmaking at New York University and was a Directing Fellow at the American Film Institute. While at AFI, he discovered his passion for Foley, something that continues to drive him to this day. He is a member of Local 700, Motion Picture Sound Editors, and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. MPSE states that he credits much of his success to other crafts people he has worked with through the years.
