Steve Foster, a 25-year veteran of the sound industry, has joined Deluxe Toronto as a senior re-recording mixer. Foster’s first project at Deluxe Toronto will be the second season of the SyFy series The Expanse.
Foster comes to Deluxe Toronto from Technicolor Toronto, formerly Toronto’s Sounds Interchange, where he helped establish the long form audio and ADR departments. He also wrote the score for ‘90s thriller Killer Image. Other credits include Narcos, Rolling Stones: At the Max and the TV series Hannibal. He earned a Gemini Award for Best Sound in a Dramatic Program on Everest, a Genie Award for Overall Sound on Passchendaele and four Motion Picture Sound Editor Golden Reels for sound editing and ADR for various episodics.
In other news, Deluxe Toronto has also extended its capabilities, adding a new Dolby Atmos mixing theater geared toward episodic production to its facility. It features equipment and layout identical to the studio’s existing three episodic sound theaters, allowing for consistent and flexible review sessions for all of the 10 to 12 projects simultaneously flowing through Deluxe Toronto. The facility also houses a large theatrical mix theater with 36-channel Dolby Atmos sound, and a soundstage for ADR recording.
