The Sound Behind the Image: Ben Burtt and the Art of Sound Design

Though many consider motion pictures to be primarily a visual medium, it would be impossible to create the full magic of cinema without sound.
The Sound Behind the Image - hosted by Academy Award-winning sound designer Ben Burtt, and presented in partnership with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences - will explore the extraordinary impact of sound in feature films.

The event will also take a fresh look at the revolutionary sound design of the 1977 Oscar-winning classic, Star Wars. A combination of film clips and live demos will examine the role that sound played in shaping the movie.
