Creating a Galaxy of Sound
Uncrate: Everyone loses it over visual effects. The realism, or sometimes lack thereof, is what captures audiences and sparks conversations around the watercooler. But what you see is only half — and possibly even less — of what makes a film great. Close your eyes and you can imagine the action and movements on the screen. Mute the sound and the entire context of a scene can be lost. Star Wars broke the mold not just in its visual effects, but in the depth and complexity of its sound design, creating characters and vehicles whose aural design is as recognizable as its visual design.
