Nicolas Becker is a leading French Foley artist and sound designer, with credits on hundreds of top-flight movies. Highlights such as Batman Begins, Gravity, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, The Impossible, Hellboy II: The Golden Army and a string of collaborations with Roman Polanski stand out on an extensive CV.
Now well-known and sought-after in Foley and sound design, Becker flaunts a willingness to engage with the creative brief of a project.
He recounts clearly his two most important career turning points. The first was his work as Foley Artist on La Haine, which won Mathieu Kassovitz, Best Director at Cannes in 1995 and also won best sound at the César Awards, France in 1996. The second was his work with acclaimed director Roman Polanski, which began with The Ninth Gate (Foley Artist, 1999) and went on to include The Pianist (2002), Oliver Twist (2005), The Ghost (2010), and Venus In Fur (2013).
His meeting with Benoît Delbecq and Steve Argüelles has been fundamental in opening up a new horizon of exploration in music to which he dedicates more and more of his time.
