Top Customer Reviews
Ben Burtt provides a detailed account on the early meetings with George Lucas and problems they both faced with 20th Century Fox studio, and the people not ready or understanding of such a different movie as 'Star Wars' was in the early 70's. Hind-sight is always 20/20 ...but what hurdles they faced re-inventing the wheel when it came to 'sound' used in 'Star Wars' and movies in general.
The book allows the reader to hear about 200 sounds (raw and fine-tuned) of the many different elements of all the movies and TV series and their origins along with behind-the-scenes photos of the films and Ben Burtt's studios over the years.
An interesting and informative idea beautifully presented in this big coffee-table book, not to mention how much fun is was to be able to hear the variuos famous sounds of "Star Wars' at a push of a button! ;-)
I'd highly recommend this book!!!
