Shelley Roden is a Northern California-based Foley Artist working at Skywalker Sound. Using her own footsteps as well as various prop materials collected over her twenty-year career, she creates and performs sound effects for films including Warner Bros’ “Dunkirk”, which won the 2017 Academy Award for best sound editing, and Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther”. Given Shelley’s athletic background and her musical theatre experience, she infuses energy, nuance and musicality into each cue performed on the Foley stage. She is inspired by innovators who blur the lines between sound effects and music and thrives on an improvisational approach to her work. Shelley received a Bachelor of Science in Cinema and Photography from Ithaca College and continues to discover through her experimentation and collaboration with her Foley team.
