I remember seeing the old footage of Star Wars sound designer and foley artist Ben Burtt, banging on a steel radio tower guy wire with a crescent wrench to record blaster-sounds, from a TV documentary when I was like five years old. Which is one of the reasons I thoroughly enjoyed this video interview with him, in spite of the fact that it’s part of a puff video for Lucasfilm’s new book about Star Wars sound effects.
