“Star Wars” Sound Man Ben Burtt Explores “Sound Behind the Image”


Star Wars

sound designer Ben Burtt will host this evening’s

“The Sound Behind the Image”

presentation by AMPAS’ Science and Technology Council.

Burtt will be joined by Oscar-nominated sound mixer Kevin O’Connell for the celebration of the art of sound in action-adventure films. Among the movies to be featured are 1926’s

Don Juan,

the first film with a synchronized musical score, and, of course,

Star Wars,

which revolutionized sound design 30 years ago.
