Lesley Robson-Foster – this year’s Empire Award honoree

Revered by broadcasters and directors, admired by the VFX industry, Lesley is a force of nature in her world. She has dedicated her professional life in the pursuit of perfection and she has come pretty close. In the process she has managed to push the envelope in some of the most prestigious television series in recent decades.

Lesley Robson-Foster’s career began at BBC television and continued at ILM until she eventually went on her own as a freelance visual effects supervisor.

She has shared her talents in NYC and LA on television series and feature films, including Six Feet Under, Sex and the City, The Wire, Ugly Betty, HBO mini-series Mildred Pierce, The Great Gatsby, Boardwalk Empire, Martin Scorsese’s Vinyl and Steven Soderbergh’s The Knick, Mosaic and Logan Lucky.

Most recently she worked with Amy Sherman Palladino on Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Reed Morano’s feature I Think We’re Alone Now and is currently working on the movie based on the Pulitzer Prize winning book The Goldfinch

It is with great pride that the New York Section is able to honor Ms. Robson-Foster with the 2018 VES Empire Award.
