Periscope Adds John Wong, C. Ryan Stemple

Periscope Post and Audio has added sound designer/mixer John Wong and colorist C. Ryan Stemple to their staff, the company has announced.

"John and Ryan are great additions to the Periscope Post and Audio team," said Michael Nehs, Chief Operating Officer and Post Production Supervisor. "They both bring unique skills and experience to our Color/DI side (Ryan) and our Audio and Sound design side (John). I couldn't be more excited to have two of the top performers in their fields join our family."

Wong is a post veteran in Chicago, who has worked heavily in video games, commercials, and long-form feature audio; he was also featured in NewCity’s Film 50 in 2016.

"The vision in establishing Periscope in Chicago was to service the local film and TV industry and also to branch out and build relationships on the West and East coasts," Wong says. "That vision has also evolved into the video game and commercial industry in which I have a lot of experience. There are a lot of talented people at Periscope and it is exciting to be able to work and collaborate with them."

Stemple, another veteran with credits stretching from DDB, Walmart, 3M, Sony, Liquid 9, Naked Juice, Kashi, and Panera, in addition to multiple features as well as serving as the dailies colorist for Seasons 1-2 for Fox’s EMPIRE and CBS’ CRISIS.

"Film and TV production has exploded in Chicago over the last five years and with these shows comes a demand for certain necessary, but sometimes tricky-to-fulfill jobs," Stemple said. "One of those is near-set dailies processing, which I can say from experience is a job too often completed in cramped, hot corners devoid of the normal morale-boosting comforts of the traditional post-house - not a great place for clients or technicians. This is not the case with Periscope. Mike Nehs and team have created an environment wherein dailies are completed with the stylish panache of a full post-house, because Periscope is a full post-house, right in the heart of Chicago's bustling production studio."
