The recently released Pixar's Wall-E has caused a unique phenomenon. I don't know of other occasion in which a sound designer was interviewed as much as Ben Burtt was regarding Wall-E.
Here are all the interviews I collected:
* Movies Online
* Los Angeles Times
And now the multimedia interviews. First a podcast from Studio 360 which is one of the best interviews with Ben:
A Space Journey In Sound:
And a /Film 4-minute Wall-E making of Featurette which has a segment on sound.
I saw Wall-E today and the sound design is the best by far of any movie I have seen this year. Also the story is quite awesome, heartfelt and smart.
On the sound design aspect, I love how Ben Burtt used a wacom tablet to change pitch on sounds in a very creative way.
