|Alexander Payne’s new film DOWNSIZING just premiered at the prestigious Venice and Telluride Film Festivals to great reviews. Over the coming months, the Hollywood Salon will be hosting members of the team who made the film.
Our September Salon guest on Monday night will be DOWNSIZING’s Post Production Supervisor, who–like Director Alexander Payne–just happens to be from Omaha!
Heidi Vogel has worked as Post Production Supervisor on feature films for more than twenty years. Her credits include PULP FICTION, JACKIE BROWN, GOOD WILL HUNTING, KILL BILL: Vol 1 & 2, PETE’S DRAGON and THE INTERN.
Most recently Heidi worked on the much anticipated DOWNSIZING with Matt Damon and Kirstin Wiig for Alexander Payne, whom she has known since seventh grade in Omaha at Lewis & Clark Jr. High.
After graduating Boston University, Heidi began her career in post production as John Sayles’s assistant and Post Production Coordinator on MATEWAN, EIGHT MEN OUT and CITY OF HOPE.
Later moving to Los Angeles, Heidi did a brief stint at the Sundance Institute, where she met producer Lawrence Bender, who invited her to work on several A Band Apart Productions, including FRESH, FOUR ROOMS and PULP FICTION.
Come meet another Omaha to Hollywood success story, who is working at the highest levels of filmmaking with some of the best in the business.
It’s going to be another great night at the Hollywood Salon TOMORROW Monday, August, 11th. Hope to see you there!
