sound design: WALL-E

R2D2 Evolved

Pixar's latest jaw-dropper is about a love-struck, trash-compacting robot in the year 2815. While the movie is visually stunning, it is the sound design that really brings the film to the next level. Ben Burtt is the mastermind that brought it to life, and you may recognize his work from Star Wars and Indiana Jones. Simply put, the guy is the King at what he does, and he raises the bar a notch with his work on WALL-E. Check out the short featurette above to get a glimpse into how he works his magic, then do yourself a favor and check out WALL-E in theaters. If you want some company let me know, cause I'll go see it again.
